About meI am an amateur astronomer, computer nerd, telescope maker, primitive guitarist, cat Dad and poet. In an alternate universe which no longer exists I was an actor.

About my libraryTwo things:

1) I often use the term "insane" as praise. This can be misleading, unless you are Crazy Eddie. I am not Crazy Eddie. It is not likely you are Crazy Eddie. Thus the explanation.

2) Many of the books listed are rated 5 stars not because I am so easy to please but because I tend to sell and/or give away anything that I don't really really like.
