About my libraryAn sf fan since grade school, most of my current library is from this genre. I do have a number of non-fiction works in my main interests of World War I aviation, streetcars, lighthouses and covered bridges.

The girl in our library doesn't look like that.. .. .. :o)
Noticed that you recently read "The Pritcher Mass;" what did you think of it? Dickson has been one of my favorite SF authors ever since I discovered him at 18. That said, this isn't my favorite of his novels (that would have to be "Tactics of Mistake"). Still, I found the characters intriguing, as always, but the story just didn't "grab" me as much as others did. I think his short stories are his best work, overall. What's your take?
