About meEnglish writer and journalist

About my libraryDecades of largely random accumulation here. I have started simply by entering the books I can see from my desk, some of which are from stories or books I've written, some old favourites, and some just there because of random drift. As soon as I can bribe a teenager to enter the stuff in the rest of the house .... (added later) It would appear that the teenagers of North Essex are wholly incorruptible. So the great work will proceed rather slowly. If I have, as I suspect, entered about half the books I own, there are fewer than I had thought.

Just to say how much of my Sweden I recognized in Fishing in Utopia. I read Swedish at UCL and my first year included a term at a Folhogskola surrounded by miles and miles of spruce. But the good folk of Skinnskatteberg lived in high(ish)-rise blocks and all had identical bathroom cabinets from Domus. But there is a nostalgia fed by watching Dansbandskampen over the internet.

Thank you.
Howdy Mr. Brown from Traverse City, MI.

Wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed Darwin Wars. An insightful and funny book that has never garnered the readership it deserves, I think.

Have you ever thought of doing an review essay or something as an update or follow-up on Darwin Wars?
Hi:

Would you tell me where this quote originates, meaning, if it's in a book, what is the title? If you could reply to sue.blauner@gmail.com that would be great. Thanks.

I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit. I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge. - Og Mandino

I Will Greet this Day

"I will greet this day with love in my heart. And how will I do this? Henceforth will I look on all things with love and be born again. I will love the sun for it warms my bones; yet I will love the rain for it cleanses my spirit.

I will love the light for it shows me the way; yet I will love the darkness for it shows me the stars. I will welcome happiness as it enlarges my heart; yet I will endure sadness for it opens my soul. I will acknowledge rewards for they are my due; yet I will welcome obstacles for they are my challenge.

To do anything truly worth doing, I must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in with gusto and scramble through as well as I can."

~ Og Mandino (1923 - 1996)
Awwww, I kinda like the photo--but then I'm a Ramsey Campbell fan!
Thanks so much for fixing the Jules Verne. Every little bit helps. I like your method for getting your books into LT - I know when I was that age I would have loved a job like that!
I am gratified that you have listed a book to which I contributed as a young bookseller, Part III: the Christian Testament Since the Bible. Tim Waterstone's publishing operation (Firethorn Press) was deservedly shortlived, but I have to say it was one of his better titles.
That is a horrible photograph, deeply horrible. Didn't a local, mad photojournalist take a better one of you last year?
