In no particular order, the ten top prized possessions in my library are:
The Meaning of Liff (autographed by Douglas Adams)
Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy Trilogy in Four Parts hardback
Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy Original Radio Scripts paperback
The Salmon of Doubt hardback
The Prophesies of Nostradamus paperback (with Form Prize certificate stuck inside as I was top of the class back in 1981)
Other Worlds than Ours - Proctor - hardback - astronomical book of our solar system printed in 1886 - before the discovery of Pluto!
Brave New World/Brave New World Revisited - hardback - Aldous Huxley
The Best of Frasier (15 complete scripts) paperback
V for Vendetta - graphic novel
Watchmen - graphic novel
Hm, yeah, that's a pretty good cross section of some of my favourite stuff, anyway.
I used to have thousands of paperbacks but had to get rid of them when we settled here...a) because my husband thought they were smelly, and b) because he doesn't like books.
I had just about every book erv written by Philip K. Di
ck, Robert Silverberg, Thomas Disch, Roger Zelazny, Samuel Delaney, and loads of other sci-fi, plus some horror. Those books were my friends. But now I have loads of DVDs, and he can't say they smell!
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. Douglas Adams.
