About My Library
I buy considerably more than I consume, and do it on the cheap, sticking mostly to secondhand paperbacks. I work on the principle that should I ever desperately need to read Erving Goffman's Stigma in the middle of the night, it will be helpfully there to hand. I make periodic, valiant, and doomed attempts to catch up.

I read eclectically, with sudden bursts of interest and passion. Fiction (women writers, children's literature, utopian fiction) has been the mainstay in recent years, but as I recover from academia, I'm starting to be able to read non-fiction again.

I'm adding books here as I read them, with meandering excursions down highways of specific topics and byways of beloved authors. The vast towering bulk of the library will surely be added slowly, slowly, ever so slowly...

About Me
I read a lot, watch a fair bit of telly, and can sometimes even be found writing. I used to be a sociologist, but I'm all right now. I collect "Great Sociologists of Literature": at my last count, there were four.

As Una McCormack, I'm the author of three Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novels, published by Pocket: Cardassia: The Lotus Flower, Hollow Men, and The Never-Ending Sacrifice.

My short fiction has appeared in the DS9 anthology Prophecy and Change, the Big Finish Doctor Who anthology The Quality of Leadership, and in various other publications, including Gardner Dozois' Year's Best Science Fiction Vol. 25.

My first Doctor Who novel, The King's Dragon, was published July 2010, and my second, The Way through the Woods, in April 2011.

I used to write a lot of fanfiction, and sometimes still do, usually under my pseud "Altariel", mostly based on the works of Tolkien.
