Hi everyone. [Nov. 30th, 2005|02:32 pm]



Ok. Well first off i'm based in Glasgow. I'm mostly into Sci-Fi and Fantasy but also enjoy historical war novels, current affairs and science. I've got a huge collection of classic sci-fi orignally collected by my father that I'd be willing to lend to people. At some points i'm hoping to get a list written but it's going to take a while. Many of the books are over 50 years old and have been well read so need a little taking care of. I also have some more recent stuff including almost everything Terry Pratchett has ever written.

I'd love to borrow any books people would recommend to me. I'm not all the fussy as I always like to try new things.

If there is a specific older sci-fi book people are looking to borrow drop me a line and I'll see if I've got it.

And yes. I did just post this on my own Journal. I am a moron. Please ignore my drooling stupidity.

Classic sci-fi in general is good, in my opinion. Do you have any Heinlein or Harry Harrison? I am generally kind to books - a lot of my own are rather well-loved paperbacks, which also need gentle handling.

I've got a lot od Heinlein, most of his early stuff and some of his later (I think I'll go nuts now) stuff too. I've got quite a bit of Harrison as well, all of Deathworld, the To the Stars Trilogy and the earlier (good) Stainless Steel Rat stuff. I've also got a lot of Asimov, Poul Anderson, Frederick Pohl (and some Kornbluth). And lots more.

A very rough estimate puts me on just over 800 books (possibly more possibly less like I say it's a rough estimate).
