Welcome to my library. A virtual extension of it, at least. Through these webpages and the books they contain, I -- and you -- can visit a whole host of worlds...
Worlds of the past...If you enjoy looking into the past, then how about some books about Earth's long and storied history, featuring the rocks and fossils that tell us of times long gone by?
Worlds of science & natureIf present-day science is more your thing, then have a look at these books about science & nature in today's world: wildlife of land and sea, ecology, other sciences, and technology.
Worlds that might have been...Here you can explore classic literature and other stories set in fictional versions of our past and present: mainstream fiction, war fiction, technothrillers, and "alternate history" speculative fiction.
Worlds that might someday be...In these pages you'll find the endless worlds of science fiction: stories of space travel, time travel, technology high and low, psychic powers, and more, all set in future worlds and times that might, if we're lucky, someday become reality.
And worlds that exist only in the endless reaches of the mind...Finally, look here for stories of magic and monsters, ghosts and goblins, knights and fair maidens, and other stories of pure fantasy, set in worlds that never were and never could be.
"Well? What are you waiting for?"
Finally, as an added attraction I have an "Art Gallery" -- or more precisely, a Photo Gallery.
As you wander my Den, you'll find that many book titles are highlighted as HTML links. Clicking any of these title links will take you to the online bookstore Amazon.com, where you can order a copy of that book, and also gain access to the entire Amazon.com website. For your convenience (and mine too), I've adopted a specific policy for my links to Amazon.com. If you find a book that is linked but isn't available, please e-mail me and let me know. Other constructive comments will be welcome too.
While one of my reasons for putting together this site was simply to share some good books with others, I also rather hope that some will find it a useful research tool. I have a sizable collection of science and nature books, including titles on a variety of subjects. It's my hope and intention that if you're looking for books on any of these topics, these pages will give you some titles to start with.
