Have too many books on my shelves - buy/receive books faster than I can read them. Love my horror, historic/archaeological fiction (Rollins, Preston-Child) and sci-fi, although enjoy reading science books (Hawking, Dawkins, de Grass Tyson, Kaku) as well, plus will read the odd general fiction.
    Howdy, Jamie!

      I don't think anyone would notice a few missing turkeys

      We have a friend who's a bow hunter, and he gets mad at me when I show him what's standing around in our back yard.

        A fuller Bio,
        Mike Hatchett, 58, Richmond Va, Public Librarian, US Army/Army Reserve retiree, 2 deployments. Married, 2 grown children, 4 crazy little dogs. I’m more a reader than collector, not huge horror reader, I dabble, enjoy some King, but by no means a completest, far from it. Love fantasy, science fiction, Mystery an occasional Western, and even a title off the best-seller list once in a while. My hobbies include martial arts, hiking, gardening and yard sales with my wife. I have an account over at Librarything. Really enjoy the Forum, learn something new almost every time I visit. Thanks to you all for making this such a nice place to hang out.

          Most cities aren't fond of gunfire within the city limits is where I was going with that. Now a bow on the other hand would be the better option in said territory .

            Well since Mike wrote one, I might as well make an extended bio too.

            I'm Dan Cozzuol from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada (see that location thingy under my name?). I currently work for the federal government, I previously worked for The Home Depot for 8 years, and a call centre before that. Generally speaking I am a genre fiction fan. I'm not a big fan of sci-fi but I love Crime/Mystery, Horror and Fantasy. Lately specifically I have been rediscovering my Fantasy roots. I'm as much of a collector as I am a reader, most of my extra budget goes towards building my collection and much of my extra time goes towards reading it. I also have a love for old films, black & white, silents, classics, especially film noir and horror (love all eras of horror). And despite my lack of preference of sci-fi in book form I have always enjoyed a good sci-fi movie.

            I am also a collector of comics, though less focused on them as of late, and I play Magic the Gathering and tabletop RPGs from time to time, hobbies I have I have held onto since my grade school days. I'm also a fan of music, many different forms, but I have a soft spot in my heart for heavy metal. I've played drums for many years, though not well, and used to jam with my friends frequently, blasting out tunes from Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, and other more obscure metal bands.

            Lastly, like Mike, I am a fan of martial arts, though admittedly I have not practiced any in years, not since high school. I do still quite enjoy watching it, mostly MMA, but I do watch boxing and grappling competitions sometimes. And whenever the summer Olympics are on I watch as much as I can; judo, wrestling, boxing (last Olympics boxing was a travesty, completely corrupt, guess that's nothing new with boxing or the Olympics though...). I still consider taking up something again, but I don't know what yet, nor do I know where I would find the time.

            What martial arts do you, or did you, practice Mike? I've gone through a few different styles, never stick for very long unfortunately, Karate, Judo, Fencing, and finally Kung Fu before stopping in high school.

                    Dan,
                    I started out with old style Taekwondo, which looks and feels an awful like Shotokan Karate, which I've also piddled around with, in 1971. I've done a modified style of Combat Judo, that they used to teach to MPs at fort Gordon GA. I've done some Hapkido and until a few years ago, rolled around on the mat doing some Jujitsu. But due some injuries I picked up in Iraq and bad joints, I've changed my workout regimen significantly. I'm experimenting with soft styles and have altered of my forms to fit my 58 year old needs. I haven't been part of a school for about ten years but I feel more like a true martial artist then I ever have before. I don't believe I'll ever stop and it's never too late to start. I have a huge Martial arts collection, some from the 1920's. If you drop in at Librarything you can see them. I've attached a couple of photos taken about ten years ago at Mt St Helens, when I was training at Ft Lewis WA.
