About meI'm an ex-pat Brit. I've worked in bookstores in both the USA and the UK, and focused my efforts on promoting and selling good quality Science Fiction and Fantasy.

I'm also a qualified special collections librarian, focused on Science Fiction and Fantasy.

About my libraryIf it's Military SF it's mine, if it's about the Ocean it's probably Mine, if it's a Middle East/Egyptian Travel Essay..yes mine, anything set in India...mine, any mysteries set in Egypt/Istanbul anywhere exotic....all mine. Most of the supernatural/Lovecraftian stories belong to my better half :-)Along with the Modesitt, F. Paul Wilson and Alan Dean Foster. Same goes for the Mercedes Lackey. Both of us love Mike Moorcock, and we're collecting books from 'Timescape', which even David Hartwell doesn't have a full list of.
The other several thousand SF books, we're working our way through.
