I just ignore anything that has his name on it.


[Edit: Just deleted everything I wrote, as I don't want to have more grief with Mr. Day, be it now or in a decade when he stumbles across this thread and blows a fuse because someone thinks his books are basically endlessly recycled used toilet paper]

I dislike him more than any other person that I have never met. I'd ritually burn his books, but it feels disrespectful to my mum who gave me them. That said, next year might be a cold winter. That and I have been known to run out of toilet paper.

I thought we were not talking about facsimile editions, most of Mr Day's books are facsimiles of his first book under different names.



You make a very important point. And he doesn't like you calling him out for it, as I found out. Apparently it is all in the hands of his publishers...

Oh, God another turd by David Day. Excuse me whilst I go and shoot myself repeatedly in the head.

If you are technically minded, spin up a PostgreSQL instance (or MySQL if you want to use a rubbish database :)), create a few tables and do it properly. You can store records for a 100 million books and it will still give you 20ms access to the individual record :)

I must admit, it isn't something I get hung up on. All the bibliographic info is available online (tolkienbooks.net, etc), so all I really need is a list describing each copy for insurance purposes, more than anything.
