About meI'm a full-time restaurant manager, a part-time writer of speculative fiction (just finished my first novel! Can't find an agent! May have to go to New York and kidnap one!), and married to the best wife on the planet - she lets me sit in front of the computer on my days off and write about werewolves and zombies and dragons and stuff.

I've been published all over the small press, and in several anthologies (which you can find on LibraryThing), and a collection of tales I co-wrote with a fellow named David Conyers just got picked up by a publisher for release next year, so I should be able to get one of those pretty yellow badges next to my name pretty soon. Looking forward to it...

A list of my ten favorite books? Why not? (though, of course, this is subject to frequent and spasmodic change)...

The Brothers K by David James Duncan
Watership Down by Richard Adams
Paradise Lost by John Milton
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons
Bridge of Birds by Barry Hughart
The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
The Day of the Jackal by Frederick Forsyth
Good Omens by Pratchett and Gaiman
Gorky Park by Martin Cruz Smith

Let's see...I've got selections from the worlds of mystery, thriller, horror, science fiction, epic poetry, great literature, humor...I can live with this list. At least until the next time I make one...

About my libraryI'm gradually cataloguing my library here as I recover it from my friend's basement - it takes a long time to move thousands of books!
