About meLifelong reader, poet, book collector. Science-fiction and fantasy fanatic. Love all forms of poetry and historical fiction with space left over for the classics.

"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity... we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance."
--- A.E. Newton

About my libraryLost my entire library in a flood in 1995 and have been trying to collect everything that was lost (an impossible goal it would seem).
