About meExpatriate Scot, twice exiled - first to England in 1990, subsequently to British Columbia in 2006. Now living in a house big enough for all the books - in fact, I need more books...

About my librarySomewhat eclectic, I suppose - I have a small number of 'must own everything they've ever written' authors and a much larger selection of things which caught my fancy at one time or another. It's ever expanding - most of what we shipped to Canada was readable, because I couldn't dispose of any of these. Don't know how long it'll take to catalogue it all, but the winter months are long here, so I'll have time
