About my libraryOnce I read a few books in an obviously edited imprint and like them, I tend to buy all of the books I can find in that imprint, although I usually confine myself to used copies. In the 90's it was the early pre-sale Northpoint Press books that I loved after reading Giono. (I never really got into Counterpoint books, though, nor do I own a single Shoemaker and Hoard book.) I'm always on the lookout for Quartet Encounters books, Dalkey Archive Press books, and, my current favorite, New York Review of Books Classics. I'm also partial to Sun and Moon Press books, and Messereli's new Green Integer Books, and I buy the occassional Fiction Collective and FC2 book.
