About My Library
My many reviews are based on the 2,230-odd books that I have read since I started keeping track in the early 1960s - I love science fiction, novels, classics, biography and poetry. My first books were The Hardy Boys mysteries. After that, my favorite mystery authors that got me to reading: Agatha Christie and Rex Stout.
About Me
Lived in San Francisco Bay Area 1973-2000. The seminal moments/times in my life: being born in Brazil, the JFK assassination, losing everything in a fire in the mid-80s, the Loma Prieta earthquake, living in Bangkok for four years and then 9/11. I currently live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where as a retired person, I manage to read as much as I want.
