What is this? Just me having trouble getting rid of books, so I’m creating a quick memory before I send the little guys to the red cross thriftstore in Tórshavn. Hopefully they’ll find a good home.

#21 Masters of Animation – John Halas

As someone with a love for films, I was naturally interested in animation. I remember loving Wizards by Ralph Bakshi.


#22 A Dry White Season – André Brink

A fine critique of apartheid. Worth a read.


#23 Nostradamus – Jean-Charles de Fontbrune

Yes, I was intrigued by Nostradamus as a young lad. Today, not so much.

#24 Neuromancer – William Gibson

Yeah, I just didn’t like it. Ok, kidding. I loved it. For some reason I had two copies lying around, so this one will venture forth and hopefully expand somebody’s mind.

#25 The Film Director – Richard L. Bare

I was very interested in filmmaking in the late 80s and early 90s and took whatever courses I could find, but my interest was slowly overtaken by stronger interests in music and literature. I bought this book while in the States in 1989.


#26 Making Movies – John Russo

Another filmmaking book.

#27 A Glossary of Literary Terms – M. H. Abrams

A remnant from my time studying English at the university. This is a very good book, which I never use anymore. Whenever I find myself wondering about the difference between allegory, alliteration and allusion I use google.


#28 The Language of Advertising – Angela Goddard

Also a remnant from my university days. Fine book, as far as I remember.


#29 The Star Trek Encyclopedia – Michael Okuda, Denise Okuda and Debbie Mirek

Ever since I saw my first episodes of TNG, I’ve been a fan. Episodes were hard to come by in the Faroe Islands, but our local mall had a video store (Top Shop), run by a guy called Joe Golightly and it had a few of the Season 1 episodes for rent. This was in the late eighties. When I went to the states in ’89, TNG was on pretty much every night. That cemented my fandom, resistance was indeed futile.


#30 The Cambridge Companion to Tom Stoppard – Edited by Katherine E. Kelly

From my university days. I like a lot of Pinter and Beckett, but I never got around to checking out Tom Stoppard.


#31 Blaze – Richard Bachman (Stephen King).

I usually keep most of my King books. partly due to nostalgia and partly because I enjoy the man’s work. King is a great craftsman and any person that can write about a levitating vending machine killing people by ejecting soda cans, while still managing to make it believable is indeed very good at what he does. IT was the very first book I read in the English language, 1117 pages, yes I read King and English/American literature before you, Gudmund, so suck it ;) Blaze, however, is the worst book I’ve ever read by Bachman/King. Of course, the man’s prolificacy was always bound to produce some stinkers. It’s a mathematical certainty, like life existing elsewhere in the universe. Unless we’re living in a simulation created by our descendants, but that goes without saying.


#32 The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown

Well, this shouldn’t need any introduction. I enjoyed it. Haven’t seen the movie.


#33 Terra! – Stefano Benni

I remember enjoying this somewhat, I think sometime in the nineties. Can’t remember anything from it, though.


#34 The Naked Ape (in danish) – Desmond Morris

What can I say, it’s science! Good stuff.
