About meEditor and graphic artist. Favorite genre is really hard-hitting in-your-face noir, sometimes labeled neo-noir and psycho-noir. Really love some of the small presses out there: Capital Crime Press, Bleakhouse, Stark House, New Pulp Press, Tyrus Books, Busted Flush Press, Permuted Press, Delirium Books (changed to Dark Fuse in Fall 2011) just to name a few. Since I wrote this ~2010, some of these small presses have not done much or gone under, e.g., Capital Crime and Busted Flush, while others have done increasingly well, e.g., Delirium/Dark Fuse, New Pulp Press. Not really into "best sellers" or popular books, though in my reading history I have read almost any genre.
About my libraryEclectic collection. Have been collecting books since about 1972. Have most books uploaded now; about 50 older books yet to go. Then again, I also keep getting more. Enjoy reading much more than cataloging so who knows if this process will ever end.
