I'm an author as well as a reader. Here's how to find my own books, and some recent anthologies with my work in them:
You can find details of all these books at my Amazon.com author page.
About my libraryI started by uploading a selection of books from my library, reflecting my three main areas of reading: science fiction and fantasy, literary fiction (especially Russian and Spanish-language fiction in translation), and poetry - especially New Zealand poetry and European and South American poetry in translation. I've also got a bunch of cricket books, books about Antarctica, and science fiction fanzines. Most of the books listed, I own; books I don't own are tagged with the name of the library from which I borrowed them. Books I've written are tagged but not rated.
