|Defender, you are a character! But you have a good point. What are your top three or so 'fictional' autobiographies? I think one of my favorite autobiographical works is West with the Night by Beryl Markham. I think this book is fairly accurate, but if I recall she got into a little trouble by pilferring some stories from others later in her writing career. So who knows how accurate West with the Night is.
Captain Crow, Yes, every now and then I pull an old favorite off the shelf. I think I read the John Carter of Mars series in the early 1960's. I have thinned out my teenage collection to just a few books. My favorite authors of that sci-fi/fantasy genre are C.S. Lewis, Ursula LeGuin, Peter S. Beagle, T.H. White, Tolkein..... In the 1980's I read extensively about the study of comparative mythology. I still have over 125 titles on my shelves, including nearly all 30 of Joseph Campbell's books. Do you still have an extensive collection of sci-fi books?
