 I got this bibliography from Wikipedia and posted it for my own use on my blog so it would be easier for me to keep track of which books I have and have not read. The ones in blue I own and the ones struck thru I have read. Feel free to copy it if you want!


  1. That's quite the reading list. Most of them are not familiar to me, this I did have to look up a few and even down loaded one. Thanks.

  2. I've only read The Man in Lower Ten and The After House. I'll get around to more eventually.
