About meIn fiction, I've been reading the 59th anniversary double issue of Fantasy & Science Fiction, Weird Tales #350, and The Man with the Strange Head by Miles J. Breuer. Also read Fledgeling by Octavia Butler for a book discussion.

In nonfiction, I'm currently reading Cabinet #30 ("Underground"), and the bits that aren't fiction in the magazines and books above.

About my libraryThe contents of most of the anthologies and collections I've entered can be found summary field, should you be interested. Others do this in the comments field, but with the other info in there, it would be messy, as well as inconvenient to turn off the column when I don't need to see the contents.

The proportions here are a somewhat skewed as I sort of fanned out from the computer, and caught the books for reference, idly flipping through, needing big shelves, or that look nice for visitors (however unlikely they are to impress them). Also those that were gifts, waiting to be read, or got stuffed haphazardly behind the cloth draped over the cat's bookcase under the window. So I have a detailed record of all the stuff I knew I had anyway, but I found some money tucked in a couple of them, and what other hobby pays almost minimum wage?

Though still working on the above, I'm now getting to much of the more interesting stuff which — as I so seldom examine my priorities — is offsite or boxed up in the basement.

I'm holding off on adding most of the novels I've read until I have a better handle on how the weighting system for similar libraries works, because I don't want the whisper of results from the diffuse and little owned nonfiction books drowned out by the fact that a lot of people who have classic SF have a lot of classic SF.

And yes, I am in fact a tapir. Just not that tapir.
