Sobre mimI love reading (and do a bit of writing too)and is the quickest and safest route to other worlds and psychologies. You can travel to strange lands, experience weird mental states, feel terror and fear from the safety of your armchair or just enjoy a great story. To add to the pleasures of reading you can gain knowledge and understanding of the world and the cosmos around you. What other media or artform compares to that?
I am an average inhabitant of Britain, living in a London suburb with a dull, low paid office job (working only four days a week) but a denizen of an imaginative inner world.
To quote the great J.G. Ballard: 'I believe in the power of the imagination to remake the world, to release the truth within us,to hold back the night, to transcend death, to charm motorways, to ingratiate ourselves with birds, to enlist the confidences of madmen.'

Sobre a minha bibliotecaMy library contains books I have bought since my early teens and the content, style and subject matter of the novels and short stories tend to be highly imaginative and fantastical or science fiction. The non-fiction are mostly books on left libertarian politics and history, general philosophy, popular science and cosmology, and the arts (literature, cinema and music.)
I have rid myself of many books over the years due to lack of space or I have borrowed from libraries. Likewise many books important to me in childhood and adolescence I have lost or again borrowed from public or school libraries and so I have decided to include those I enjoyed reading, although not in my collection.
