About meAttorney and reader.

About my libraryCurrently, I actively collect books on Nabokov, Beckett, legal history, new wave science fiction, Shakespeare, Jewish history and a whole bunch of other stuff.

These are all books I either own, or have read. Meaning, there are books on here I haven't read, and books on here which I have read, but don't currently own. This is not a "wish list" library. Wish list libraries are silly, in my opinion.

A note on tags: "ATC" is a personal tag which denotes a books location; "deaccessioned" is for books which once, but no longer, resided in my library.

Hi. Just wanted to let you know that Delany does discuss elements that were included in Dhalgren in his autobiographic work- "Motion in Light and Water" .

Also, wikipedia has an excellent entry on Dhalgen with extensive footnotes you might find of interest:
I'm very glad you find it interesting. My medieval books are bascially cataloged now, though I recently bought some more at the International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo which I will add when I have time. Meanwhile, I welcome any comments you may have on what is already cataloged.
Thank you for adding the "Interesting LIbrary" link. I suspect we will share more books when I get time to add more of my "genre fiction" holdings.
Thanks for the "Interesting Library" linkage.

(Just by stopping by here, I learned of the "Delany" group. (A Delany group? And nobody told me?!))
