Site design selection
The old design is no longer fully supported nor does it get full attention when we roll out new features. We strongly recommend using the new design.
About meI've been writing online about the things that interest me since about 1995 (back then I had 10 MB of free webspace on my internet provider) - I purchased my first domain, wildtoys.com in 1998, however the site actually started as part of my personal webspace via free provider around 1996. I'm very interested in Modern Design (Mid-Century is a particular favorite), the Space Race, movies and science fiction. I'm also an avid woodworker.
About my libraryI read mostly Science Fiction and Fantasy but am more into the science side (I find that a lot of the fantasy work currently being published is too repetitive and derivative). I started collecting comics as a kid and when I got into reading a lot of fiction, collecting First Editions, especially Illustrated Editions, seemed a natural extension. At several points I've wittled down the comic collection (it's mostly comprised of magazines and my original Marvel Conan the Barbarian collection which I started as a child) and have concentrated on the books from authors I like to read. I also collect books illustrated by artists I like. I often like to go to book signings or attend conventions where I get signatures from my favorite authors and artists, and occasionally ask or pay for personalized illustrations and sketches (provided the artist isn't swamped - I try not to be overzelous and obnoxious).
