About meThirty three years of age. A spendthrift and ne'er-do-well, variously employed in the church, the book trade, newspapers and tourism.

A poor hand with a sabre and an only passable pistol shot, I am fondly remembered by all those who never lent me money.

About my libraryI've read about half of these, but I tend to buy books like bears eat; storing up fat for the winter.

It's mostly non-fiction as I usually give away the fiction as there's only so much room in the house. I'm a gamer and a writer (of sorts) and so a great deal of my non-fiction reading is dictated by those pursuits.

I also have a very childish collecting impulse, so that there are a couple of collections within the library.

The main ones are...

The Call of Cthulhu Collection - Material for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game, the Rolls Royce of RPGs.

The Osprey Collection - It is no accident that Osprey publishing got its start in the collectable card market. They are very, very pretty. While not always as good as I'd wish them to be, they are often the best a limited field has to offer. Gotta catch 'em all!

The Victorian & Edwardian Adventure Fiction Collection- Doyle, Wren, Buchan, Conrad, Haggard, Kipling, Stevenson, Wells. They are all magnificent and I have a terrible tendency to rebuy them whenever I find a more handsome edition.

GroupsAmerican Civil War, Baker Street and Beyond, Celeano, Cthulhu Mythos, HMS Surprise, Military History, Second World War History, Victoriana, Wargamer
