About meMy interests are in mathematics (algebraic combinatorics, categorical logic, and a lot else) and physics (quantum theory, geometric quantization), as well as history (British, early Christian/pagan, history of science), technical works in sustainability, and a taste in fiction that I find difficult to describe. I have too many books. I have too few books.

About my libraryMany technical works. Authors whose works are represented multiply include Richard Powers (an all-time favorite), Jacques Barzun, P.G. Wodehouse, Stanislaw Lem, Tom Stoppard, and George Meredith. I would include also Thurber, O. Henry, Shakespeare, and G.B. Shaw, and several poets, but they appear in my library as collected works.
