This is where my library exists; here is where you can find my reference works, inspiration and stimulation sources and the books that I just love.
You may get led here by one of the links of bibliography which I have on my other pages, rather than write all the information out again it is here. You can also see my favourite top 10 books. Occasionally these charts may change...watch this space???

These are some of the books which have affected my life in some way. I have not divided them into fiction and non-fiction, this is so I can group together books such as Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, and books about the life and times of J.R.R.Tolkien, rather than have you search around to find any connected works etc.
They are divided into their respective areas for no other reason than that's how it happened. If you are interested in my top 10 fav's, then click on FAVOURITES.

Here are just some of the biographies I have read and enjoyed.

Doctor Who

There are so many books on this subject, and more coming out each month, there is no way I can either keep perfect track of them or, put them in perfect order. I will do my best however. They are arranged in the order they were first televised primarily, or as they should be to maintain continuity throughout secondly.

H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu mythos

For horror without all the slasher-stuff or gore this is for you. This is insanity and fear at its best!

Star Trek

Not many here just yet, but it might be worth your while having a look?

Victoria Holt

I've only read one so far but I was so impressed I bought a beer!

E.E. 'Doc' Smith

Doc's classic Lensman series kicks off with Triplanetary, read my views on it.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

I have only read the first one, but I enjoyed it, and it is a good one for the younger, able readers.

Harry Potter

A good children's book full of elements of school life and fantasy, and even a dash of imagination. Try it once at least?

Isaac Asimov

One of the most respected science fiction writers in the genre.


A love story that's a little bit different.

Star Wars

Books covering the entire Star Wars universe.

The Day Of The Triffids

Quite different from the film, more typical of the era it was written in.

Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter

Books concerning the investigations by Anita Blake, animator and part-time vampire hunter. Sort of kick-arse Buffy.

Battlefield Earth

A big, long, highly-readable, science fiction novel by one of the old-geezers of the Golden Age of sci-fi writing. I can see why the film only goes half-way though.

Bridget Jones's Diary

Very good laugh, very enjoyable, easy to read in one sitting. Life through the eyes of chaotic Bridget.

Harper Lee

Her only novel and it is so brilliant!

Alan Campbell

His first book of the Deepgate Codex. Steam, dirt, poison, and angels...what a mixture!

Georgette Heyer

The Quiet Gentleman was my first, but very enjoyable and gripping.
