Congratulations to ISFDB for such a wonderful resource.
I started reading science fiction when I was a boy. Then, much later, Chris Foss met Doc Smith and everything changed.
I would spend as much time in the worlds of the covers as I would in the novels. Even now, standing in the light of a striking sunset, it's easy to imagine it's an exotic atmosphere on an alien world.
My collection is over two thousand books and I find that over half of the printings are not in the database. Guess I've got to buy a scanner - and not a dark one...
