About meDuring the day I'm a boring local government functionary, but when dusk falls my alter-ego as a consumer and collector of trash and underground culture in all its forms takes over.

About my libraryMy library breaks down into five main areas: books, magazines; comics; CDs and movies. These total somewhere in the region 35,000 items and are scattered through-out our house (thanks to the forbearance (and collusion) of my wife and three kids). I'm in the process of trying to upload and catalogue these various items.

Books mainly fall into horror, SF and trashy, sleazy, pulp shockers of all kind. There is also a fair degree of occult, eclectic and "pulp culture" reference work in there as well.

Magazines fall into the same general categories as above, but also cover movies, music and Americana pulp.

Comics: In the main horror comics of all kinds - from the '70s DC mystery line; the Marvel horror boom; Warren; Skywald; Eerie and the undergrounds. From a more mainstream perspective I've also got reasonably respectable runs of Batman, Detective, Thor, 2000AD and Judge Dredd the Megazine.

CDs: Heavy Metal - trad, doom, power, black, death, gothic, symphonic - the metal is here in all its glorious forms. Also a ton of covermounts from everything from Terrorizer through Mojo to Classic FM.

Movies: horror of all kinds: the Universal classics; the '50s monster flicks; the '70s classics; Eurosleaze; J-horror and the modern splatter classics. Everything from Coffin Joe to Lucio Fulci.

Thanks. I've got those X-Files issues split apart and recombined into the proper works. If you don't mind keeping the authors listed like that, that'd be great (though in that case, #0 should be Roy Thomas, not Stefan Petrucha; my mistake.) If you do want to clear those author fields, maybe let's try just a single issue to start; I'm afraid that maybe if you clear the author field out, they'll automatically get recombined into a single edition again. We'll see. Cheers, ~Chris
Thanks for giving me your blog link! I can't believe I missed it on your LT page. Really, really cool site! :) And I totally agree about LT being the best cataloging system online so far. I used to have my movie and music collections all over the place, so I'm trying to do the same (importing, I mean). Best of luck with that! Especially since you mentioned you have thousands of magazines and movies to go through. Wow! :D
Hi! Just wanted to say I love your library. I'm glad to see another music, movie, AND horror fan on LT. :)
Thanks for taking the time to give me an answer. I was afraid that manual entry would be the only way to go. Pity there is no comic book repository that LT could use the way they use Amazon and various libraries to add books.
Hello, I am a new user. How do you add comic books? I have Marvels dating back to the Seventies. Is there a way to them besides manually?
