Mr. Love started reading and collecting sci fi in the 1950's and went on to become one of the earliest and premier software writers on the planet, working first for Control Data, Boeing, and Space Labs before become the lead on Microsoft's SQL server program. With a group of friends he helped developed the bar code system that now moves the US Mail. Mr. Love passed away in 2006 and we are aiding his family in the sale of his library ranging from science fiction and fantasy to cryptography to chess to martial arts. We have more of his personal library available and a portion of the sales go directly to his family. Robert Jordan was his favorite author and we have several signed editions of his books available. Oddly enough, Mr. Love died of cardiac amyloidosis, the same rare heart disease that claimed the life of his favorite author one year later.
