About meI am a psychologist by training and a professor by employment. I work at The Ohio State University, where I appear to be doing thirty years to life as things are turning out. My primary job is in the Department of Pediatrics, where I mainly do research and clinical work in developmental disabilities, and that mostly with younger children. I am a published author in the scientific literature in my specialties, and an editor or co-editor of 15 books, to most of which I was also a chapter contributor. That comes with the territory my of my day job. I am also a graduate faculty member in one of the few remaining doctoral programs in psychology specializing in developmental disabilities, which means that it is also among the best (no really). Ohio State is a never ending intellectual universe that no one could hope to explore in a lifetime. It is a good place for a career in psychology and discovery.

I read and study ancient and medieval history and culture for fun and enjoy related historical fiction. I am a long time member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, although I tend to stay on the sidelines in the organization.

About my libraryI began to enter my books in early 2009. I should be able to enter about 100 or so each month at my likely rate of getting to the task. (This was overly optimistic, I still have hundreds to list of my older library and started listing mostly "just read" books circa 2011.) There are going to be many books related to my research and work, and even more related to my personal reading preferences. I am interested in history, mostly but not entirely of the West, from prehistory to today's political and cultural history. I am interested in critical thinking and general science. I have been a science fiction and fantasy reader since I learned to read, but many of my books read and collected before age 21, when I left home forever, were lost in the dissolution of my boyhood home in New Jersey when things fell apart there.

Summer Reading
Glad to be friends as well. So nice to hear from you. I would love to hear some great book recommendations. Have a great day.
Lovely to meet you James.
Hi there,

I recently purchased & cataloged Helen Longino's book Science as Social Knowledge. I noticed you gave it an extremely low rating, and was wondering why? I haven't read it yet and I'm only starting to familiarize myself with much of the science & values literature. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts if you have the time to share them.

Best regards,
Dani
Good to have you as a contact. I now see why it's taking you a while to catalogue your books, that's some collection. I also noticed you like England's history, same here. LT is a great tool and saved me buying doubles as it's not easy to keep track when books are scattered all over the house. I'll keep an eye on your ever-increasing catalogue!
Hi James,

sorry I have taken so long to reply. I have fond memories of Melbourne, I grew up in a town roughly 150km from Melbourne. Here in Canberra its been flat strap (I work for the Australian Public Service and its closin in on budget time :( )

I remember reading "The Legate's Daughter" in my early teens - among the first historical novels I read, it was passed on to me by my grandmother - along with 'The Crimson Chalice' and 'Macbeth the King'.

Cheers

Great! Very glad to have you -- any input welcome!
