About meGreetings and happy reading!

About my library==========================================
Huge fan of golden age science fiction and fantasy. Essentially: Have spaceship, will read!

Top 3 favorite authors: Isaac Asimov, Terry Pratchett, Robert A. Heinlein
Top 3 favorite genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Astronomy

After an extended hiatus involving career and personal life changes, I am just now starting to get back into reading. I have acquired quite a few books over the past few years that aren't cataloged yet...since most of my library is in storage, I will have to hold off on a full library update.
