About meIm a historian who lives way down in exotic Alabama. Ive also been a small-time journalist and computer tech, and have spent some weeks in London, Vienna, and Basel. My wife teaches English literature and our home libraries have merged.

About my libraryYoull find a lot of history, dozens of books in German, quite a few on Islam, and a whole bunch about southeastern American Indians. Most of the fiction is my wifes, along with a fine Quaker history collection. Ive collected several musty old paperbacks warning of an imminent deth struggle with communism. These are tagged Red Menace. Similar books associated with the latest apocalyptic ecstasy are tagged scary Muslims.
