    Who are you?

    Simply put, what's your name? I think many of us know and call each other by our real first names. I believe it's apt, as we book collectors, I feel, are more than just internet friends. I've had many people contact me to help me with purchases, shipping, or even other non-collecting related situations. And if you look at the community, at the dt.org site for example everyone works together to raise money for worthy causes too. But it'd be useful, I think, to have a thread where we can keep them all together, so new folk that decide to sign up aren't confused and have reference point, but also so that us stalwarts don't lose track and start calling John; Cam, or Cam; Mike or Mike; Tom etc..

    If you feel comfortable sharing please do.

    My name's Daniel, Dan or Danny (And when I was in French school Danielle )

    My name is Andrew, and through no fault of my own I find myself alive on Earth without an instruction manual. Though on the way here they told me life would be like a cross between Space Invaders and ice fishing.

    I'm Jamie (James) - Windsor, Ontario (fun fact - I have to drive NORTH to go to Detroit, MI). Married to a wonderful wife, and have a soon to be 17 wonderful daughter, and 3 cats, 3 dogs. 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.

    It is in this part of NJ We have a lot of woodlands behind our house, and a creek running thru the back yard. There must be 20-25 turkeys in this flock, and the snow has them wandering a little further than usual in their hunt for food.

    We also have a herd of deer that eat everything in sight in the summer months. Apart from that, the usual suburban wildlife - raccoons, foxes, groundhogs etc.

    Here's a funny video of the turkeys getting aggressive a few years back. This is a couple of blocks from our house - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhh68bITXM8

    Wow! I didn't realize this was such a serious issue LOL. Good thing my old man isn't/wasn't around. He was a serious wild gamesman. We'd been eating turkey for months but the court costs..... :-/.

    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.
