About meWriter of fiction, chronicler of foibles, wrangler of chaos.

About my libraryMy library is heavy on the poetry, speculative fiction, linguistics, and Iain Banks. For an excellent historical collection, please see my beloved FunkyPlaid's.

Most of my library is currently in storage; for the books I have on hand in Edinburgh, see my "In Scotland" collection.
