About mei live in a cosy converted barn with my wife and our two cats. one of our cats is very sensible and independent, and she's called columbus (we thought she was a boy). the other is daft and white, and she's called pooky.

i work at oxford university press on the english dictionary which is great fun!

About my libraryi have a range of interests: science fiction, plays, classics, graphic novels, contemporary lit... my favourite genre, though, is science fiction.


thanks to tom for letting me use his UBIK pictures. if you know the book then you'll know how cool and appropriate the pictures are. i personally finds there's something subtly (and wonderfully) sinister about them...

here's his website of cool 3D art:

Yes, although not quite confident enough to write reviews!
Noticed you liked Fight Club, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed bunch of kids and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Ummmm...what do we do as friends?? Your guess is as good as mine! I just like having friends!!
Hey JP! I just sent you an invite to be my friend. Will you be my friend??

One of these days, I'll actually get around to listing all my books!!
Well, I did finally read The Shrinking Man last week, which means that I've now read 1 novel, 1 novella (novelette..?; it's Duel or "Duel," depending...), and 1 short story ("Button, Button") by him. (I've also read a short story by his son, Richard Christian Matheson.) I've slapped up a review of The Shrinking Man on LibraryThing and on my LiveJournal account (pretty much the same review in both places; the one on my LJ might be very slightly more prolix than the one here). I suspect that the next Matheson book that I read will be The Shores of Space (short story collection), since that's the one I've got with me. I'd like to pick up a copy of I Am Legend, but this will have to wait until I get some spare (HA!!) cash -- or until my local library obtains a copy.

I probably will read more Philip K. Dick and/or re-read the books I've read by him; given what my interests are and what he wrote about, I would be going out of my way not to read him at some point.

But you're right, of course: there is a whole wide world of stuff out there, in multiple genres. I've got an armload of Mack Reynolds books and a shorter stack of Mike Resnick books to work my way through, for one thing, and there are a few Jack Vance books I've yet to read....
Flirting hey?

I noticed one of your tags is P and B 6 month book in which you have player of games. that could also go under the tag "present from p" because I bought it for you.

Whats your book again? The one we have to read next?? I will put it in my wish list.x
