Sounds like my bookshelves (when I had them - collection currently in boxes awaiting library construction in new house). But I do really like Banks.I'd boastfully respond that if you have a yard of Asimov on your shelf, you're ok. But that doesn't mean or include Dick. Aldiss, Anderson, Ballard, Bliss, Bester just for the first few letters of the alphabet. Just don't say Moorcock; I've been reading the Guardian again and I'm in no mood.
