About me40+ computer repairman (geek) and history buff

About my libraryMy book interests are a little eclectic, but they boil down to the following:

60's-90's Science Fiction
Southeast Asian History (Vietnam and China)
Everything Else

The last one covers a lot of ground.


I sold or gave away about 2000 books a few years ago during a long move (800 miles) and am slowly trying to build them back. At the moment my catalog consists of those books I COULD NOT stand to give up; I re-read a lot of the really important ones like Dune, LOTR, Cherryh's Morgaine, etc.

I will also try to add more reviews and flesh out existing ones, particularly Jack Vance and Cherryh. Please give me feedback on my reviews if you don't like them/want to know more! I'll try to work on books that no one else has done yet.

Note: My reviews/spoilers for Vance's Tschai (Planet of Adventure) series is done.
