Sobre mi biblioteca

Up till December 2023, two libraries: a working one at my university office, heavy on Shakespeare and Renaissance, classics, classical tradition and mythology; and a very miscellaneous home one, heavy on SF and fantasy, historical fiction, detective fiction, history, and the theatre; also a substantial Folio Society collection (my most expensive habit). Since retirement, both libraries are squeezed into my home, with a substantial chunk of my academic books still in boxes.


The photo is my cat, Willow, roosting among Folio volumes and owls.
