About meA dysfunctional forty-something former cinema projectionist with an interest in most things, but particularly Fantasy, Film, History, Forteana and RPGs.

About my libraryA work in progress (aren't they all?)

About half of my library is in storage or still at my parent's house - I'm pretty sure it is all now catalogued. One day I might get round to putting up some shelves at my place... (And then I can go through it all, make sure it *is* all catalogued, details are correct and everything has the right cover)

Most of it consists of fantasy, graphic novels (but not superhero stuff), Role Playing Games and film reference books. Over the past few years I have acquired a growing collection of "Cthulhu Mythos" books by HP Lovecraft and his subsequent followers.

I've also added my beloved partners book collection: a strange mix of Cookery, Motor Sport, Tudor History and a few duplicates of my collection.

I also have two "virtual" library projects:
miskatoniclibrary, for HP Lovecraft and the Cthulhu Mythos, and rpglibrary in which I am attempting to list all Role Playing Games that I can think of.
