I had to copy this one, amigo. 'Tis interesting to see the differences in our tastes.

In many cases on this list, it isn't so much a matter of taste as a simple conspiricy of circumstances - most of them are on my "to be acquired & devoured" list, but I haven't had the opportunity to pick them up yet. "The Demolished Man", for instance - never had the money when I encountered it. Michael Crichton, though... I dunno. I may have to reconsider my position on that one.

Mind if I add you? We share a friend in the delightful jonnorthwood.

Fantastic! I look forward to learning more about you.
