About meQuote:

We carry with us the wonders we seek without us: there is all Africa and her prodigies in us. (Sir Thomas Browne)

About my libraryMostly literature, with a penchant for poetry. Some history, philosophy and other non-fiction.
And then there is SF (not fantasy, definitely not fantasy); actually my third collection of SF: I sold my first one in the sixties, started anew somewhere in the seventies, gave it away in the eighties; started my third collection around 1990. In the first years of the century I sold most of my SF novels: to me SF is primarily a short story genre. Especially in SF I hate things called "sagas" or "epics".
