About meLifelong bibliophile. I mostly read genre literature: science fiction, fantasy, horror, crime/mystery, and pulp fiction, among others. I have also been playing role-playing games since 1981.

I'm a voracious reader and a fairly prolific reviewer. Please check out my book review blog, Tales from the Bookworm's Lair (URL listed below), for some of my recent book reviews.

About my libraryTo the best of my knowledge, all of the books in my library are physically present in this catalogue. Whew! All of the books entered are ones I actually currently own, not ones I'd like to purchase, or have read, or checked out of the library. The only exceptions are a handful of books I have written reviews of but no longer own; these are in the collection "Reviewed but unowned." While I have a lot of eBooks, I have not attempted to catalogue them here.

My library is heavily weighted toward speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, and horror). I also have a fairly large collection of pulp fiction and role-playing games. My non-fiction collection is a bit sparse because I use the library for most of my non-fiction.

I'm always interested in conversing with folks about books, so feel free to drop me a line if you see anything that catches your fancy in my library. I appreciate feedback about my reviews as well.

In recent years I have had two major purges in my library: one in 2017 (when I got rid of at least 700 books, donating many to Duke University's Special Collections) and another in 2021 (when I purged about 1500 additional volumes).
