The Collector

cross-posted to sciencefiction
Actually, the above is a misnomer. I'm not much of a collector of things...more an accumulator.

As most of you know, I'm in the process of packing to move to Philly. I just finished (I think) packing up the science fiction magazines I've accumulated in the last 4 years. I have 6 boxes of science fiction magazines.

The bulk are Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine. But I also have Asimov's, Analog, Galaxy, Worlds of If, Astounding(which later became/merged w/Analog), Amazing Stories and issues 1-13 of Galileo (for which I can find no suitable website, but is probably best known for it's introduction of Niven's Ringworld Engineers - in 4 parts, issues 13-17).

I'm not, as I mentioned above, a collector. These are not collector's copies. These are reading copies, which I bought in the largest ebay lots I could find, because I had nothing to read (this was before I retrieved my books from Mom's place in Missouri, just last October).

Sometimes I just have to realize what an (amazing, wonderful) obsession science fiction is.
