    What do you collect?

    I did a thread like this a few years ago, but it's been a while so let's do it again. What do you collect?

    Metal CDs for me, and to a lesser extent strange fiction. Strange as in obscure or actually strange like Lovecraft, or even better would be both (e.g., William Sloane's two novels).

    Grey hair, but not on purpose.

    Knives.

    Bibles - not always intentionally, but I seem to collect quite a few.

    Guns, but nowhere near the collection that some people have, and if the gun grabbers are reading, I gave them all away.

    Another great example of both strange and obscure would be Fritz Lieber's The Dealings of Daniel Kesserich.

    Stamps.

    Card making supplies.



    And I have a small collection of china and other items with violets on them.

    Also, dust.

    I used to collect chess books but I've probably sold most of mine by now.

    I have a haphazard collection of bottle caps and small change. I have a small collection of dragon figurines. I have way too many books, but those are mostly too diverse to be called a collection.

    I figure in the next decade or two most of what I'll be collecting is memories.

    That's why you can use the word "eclectic".

    I also had a collection of state road maps going. I wanted to get all 50, but several of them accidentally got thrown away in a move, so I just stopped.

    Did you happen to have any of the bootleg maps? Can't remember the publisher, but they were sued by one of the biggies (Rand McNally?) for copying -- the story was that Rand McNally would include a tiny out-of-the-way town that didn't actually exist, so any other publisher that included that town would be exposed as copying.

    I don't think so. But I've heard about that. I think they were called "paper towns" because they only existed on paper?
