About meMy background (and current employment) is in the field of mathematics and computer science, but I intend to attend seminary someday. I am also interested in linguistics and languages. And philosophy. And a bunch of other stuff.
About my librarySmall (constrained by space and budget) but selective. Too much of it dates to my time in college... A lot of text books (not just from school - I tend to buy these things like some people buy paperbacks...) and reference books. Math, computer science, textual criticism, theology, philosophy, random science books, and stuff in or about German, and some other language books. There's some fiction, most of which is science fiction and mostly hard sci-fi at that. The rest is composed almost entirely of epics, a few classics, and of course Shakespeare.
