Sobre mimI've been writing online about the things that interest me since about 1995 (back then I had 10 MB of free webspace on my internet provider) - I purchased my first domain, wildtoys.com in 1998, however the site actually started as part of my personal webspace via free provider around 1996. I'm very interested in Modern Design (Mid-Century is a particular favorite), the Space Race, movies and science fiction. I'm also an avid woodworker.

Sobre a minha bibliotecaI read mostly Science Fiction and Fantasy but am more into the science side (I find that a lot of the fantasy work currently being published is too repetitive and derivative). I started collecting comics as a kid and when I got into reading a lot of fiction, collecting First Editions, especially Illustrated Editions, seemed a natural extension. At several points I've wittled down the comic collection (it's mostly comprised of magazines and my original Marvel Conan the Barbarian collection which I started as a child) and have concentrated on the books from authors I like to read. I also collect books illustrated by artists I like. I often like to go to book signings or attend conventions where I get signatures from my favorite authors and artists, and occasionally ask or pay for personalized illustrations and sketches (provided the artist isn't swamped - I try not to be overzelous and obnoxious).

I'm also into classic science fiction paperback books like those produced by Ace, DAW and Lancer - it was the cover art that lured me into picking up those, and the memory of my father reading them brings in a touch of nostalgia that's rather addicting. This also enamoured me to old "cheezy" book covers so I've got a scattering of those in paperback as well (in general the writing is pretty bad - look up "sex kitten" in my library to see an example of what I'm referring to).

The collection is fairly extensive - so far I've inventoried about 93% (I'd say about 95% of the hardcovers and about 90% of the paperbacks). The letter-number combinations in my tagging relate to boxes where the books are currently stored - tags without the letter-number combo are on the shelf.
