A is for Asimov & Aldiss.

Having my SFF book collection up in the loft gives us more space in the bungalow, but it can sometimes be a bit of a pain. I don't get to reread any of the books and less I make a special effort to get up there. When someone asks me in an interview about the books I've read and maybe been influenced by I can't swing round on my chair and check them out. And if I spot a book in a shop by one of the writers I've enjoyed, I'm never sure whether or not I have a copy. So, for my interest and yours, I'm sorting through my entire collection, listing the books and photographing them. Today, inevitably, I'll start with 'A'.

I'd start cringing thinking about laying out either my Tarl Cabot (Gor) or my Dray Prescot series for public display. Was reading those 30 yrs ago.

Maybe a cringe, but you always regret it if you get rid of them. I wish now I hadn't sold off all my old E E Doc Smiths.

noticed you switched titles for the Aldiss "Equator" with your Van Vogt "Space Beagle". just to bulk up your collection right? heh.
