About meUndisciplined collector of books and inveterate reader. Reading interests range widely, currently leans towards ancient history, archaeology, mythology, earth & space sciences, personal essays, science fiction & urban/dark fantasy. However, fiction is in the ascendant over the last year or so.

About my libraryEclectic. Squeezed onto fifteen bookshelves of varying size in a too small apartment.
