About meI got hooked on reading when I was young and the very small library near my home got visited a lot. For many years science fiction stories have been a large part of my reading history starting with the first science fiction novel I recall finding in my 6th grade school library, The Purple Cloud by M.P.Shiel. From there I moved on to Andre Norton and the following year a friend introduced me to the Tarzan novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. I read a lot of non-fiction when I was younger but not as much now. I had a lot of interest in the American Civil War and World War II. I hate war but fascinating stories come out of it. These days I read a mix of things.
About my libraryIt is heavy on science fiction with a mix of history, historical fiction, mysteries and a little bit of everything. A favorite is anthologies, since I really enjoy science fiction short stories and novellas, both modern and "golden-age". Some of the books in my library, esp some series of mysteries and thrillers, and Anne McCaffrey are shared books with my spouse and are included here so we can keep track.
