About meI'm presently a school counselor, former history teacher who still has an abiding interest in history and politics, especially anything to do with presidential history and leadership. I also enjoy certain mystery series and old pulp writers such as Robert E. Howard, Hugh B. Cave, H. P. Lovecraft and others.
I enjoy my job, but if I had it to do over again I would have pursued library science and/or graduate degrees in history, which I may still do after I retire from my present job.
Besides my books I enjoy movies and spending time with my family.

About my libraryI'm a recovering biblio-addict (I think that's the right term) who now goes to the library most of the time instead of the bookstore. I still have more books than is probably reasonable, but I've always wanted a large library ever since I read about Thomas Jefferson's when I was a kid. Besides the history, biography, and political stuff there's sports, especially football and track, pulp fiction from the 30's, 40's and 50's. Also mystery series galore. Some science fiction, fantasy, and classics. I love humorous writers, such as P. G. Wodehouse, Janet Evanovich, and Dave Barry.
As you would expect from an educator I also have a lot of volumes on education, teaching, and counseling.

Hey Steve

I was in contact with you on a list somewhere, and now I found you here on LibraryThing. Wanna link up?

Cheers

Howdy,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. Thanks for finding something of interest in my library; I never tire of the ego-boost:)

Our biggest shared interest would appear to be some of Karl Edward Wagner's works (love those Kane short-stories, I have to say. I can live without the novels).

Looking at your list of favorite authors, you may want to check out the library of my friend jackanaples. I think you two have pretty similar reading interests.

Take it easy,

I just uploaded a scan of the cover of Tierney's Winds of Zarr to LT. I thought I'd let you know in case you want to use it.
I have read some Howard Wandrei -- that's what lead me to discover his brother's work. I had the opportunity to buy the two volumes that i have from a friend who was giving them up.
