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.
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.
Doctor Who | Biographies | Buffy The Vampire Slayer | The Day Of The Triffids | E.E.'Doc' Smith | Harry Potter | H.P.Lovecraft & The Cthulhu Mythos | Isaac Asimov | Star Trek | Star Wars | Victoria Holt | Wilderness | Battlefield Earth | Bridget Jones's Diary | Georgette Heyer | Harper Lee | Alan Campbell
Here are just some of the biographies I have read and enjoyed.
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.
For horror without all the slasher-stuff or gore this is for you. This is insanity and fear at its best!
Not many here just yet, but it might be worth your while having a look?
I've only read one so far but I was so impressed I bought a beer!
Doc's classic Lensman series kicks off with Triplanetary, read my views on it.
I have only read the first one, but I enjoyed it, and it is a good one for the younger, able readers.
A good children's book full of elements of school life and fantasy, and even a dash of imagination. Try it once at least?
One of the most respected science fiction writers in the genre.
A love story that's a little bit different.
Books covering the entire Star Wars universe.
Quite different from the film, more typical of the era it was written in.
Books concerning the investigations by Anita Blake, animator and part-time vampire hunter. Sort of kick-arse Buffy.
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.
Very good laugh, very enjoyable, easy to read in one sitting. Life through the eyes of chaotic Bridget.
Her only novel and it is so brilliant!
His first book of the Deepgate Codex. Steam, dirt, poison, and angels...what a mixture!
The Quiet Gentleman was my first, but very enjoyable and gripping.
Romance has died in the classic pulp novel?
Send me your thoughts?
