About me60+, Computer programmer, International Tiddlywinks player. Ringman was derived from a Thorpe's Ring in winks, see picture.

About my libraryI welcome corrections, if you find errors in my catalogue please send me a message.

Mainly paperback Sf and fantasy, with a sprinkling of English and Russian Classics.
Initial entry of books now complete, but still buying books. I have not entered some out of date computer manuals which are in my home catalogue.

Includes all Hugo and Nebula winning novels and about 96% of nominated novels. Where the award/nomination applies only to part of the book or to an earlier version comment will give details. I now also have books containing only parts of nominated works (Analog).

I am tagging books with cover artists where possible. Uploaded cover indicates a scan of my book so the cover is right unless I've uploaded totally the wrong book. Other members upload means I have linked to someone else upload after comparing with my scan. If tagged ordered I don't have it yet so I can't be sure of the cover.

Other tags - collection includes omnibus collections of novels. Anthology means works by two or more authors and the entry in the author field is the editor. I have made a first pass on listing contents, in the comment field, but have not in general done poetry collections and anthologies. Note that I have made no attempt to list the contents in the order they occur in the book. (they come from a spreadsheet which get reordered in all sorts of ways)

Books - My Books!
Inclusions - This is for works included as parts of books. e.g. The Works of Jane Austen goes in the main section, Northanger Abbey is in inclusions. Only titles which have been published separately are in this collection, not short stories.
Shorts - Short fiction and essays and poetry not in inclusions, very littleof essays and poetry so far entered.
Your Library - books + inclusions + shorts
On order - three guesses!
wishlist -

The number at the start of the comment field is my numbering, and very roughly follows order of purchase at least for fiction.
