About meI am a lexicographer of anglophone slang. My most recent dictionaries are the single-volume Chambers Slang Dictionary (a third revised and expanded edition of the original Cassells Dictionary of Slang, 1998) which was published in October 2008 and the multi-volume, fully cited Green's Dictionary of Slang which was published in the UK by Chambers/Hodder in November 2010.
About my libraryA core of slang-related reference works; a large group of books which I not merely read but from which I glean citations (i.e, pulp, crime and hard-boiled fiction of various ages and quality) biographies, history, lowlife, cities, 'non-slang' fiction, rats and all the rest...the agglomeration of a lifetime of loving books.
