Alex Coblentz

Alex is a college student living in Frederick County Maryland in the USA. Studying Visual Communications he hopes to pursue a career in graphic design, 3D modeling or authoring and illustrating juvenile oriented material. Already pushing to his goal, Alex is the Layout and Design manager for his college newspaper. He also works at a retail used bookstore where he enjoys the plethora of fascinating books that come in all the time.

Collecting for a couple of years now, it all started with 4 Pinnacle novelisations that he bought off eBay. At the moment, Alex is into collecting Target paperback and hardback novels, as well as VHSs and DVDs. He hopes to expand into Doctor Who paraphernalia in the future. Alex finds the great majority of his collection from online purchases, almost all from eBay auctions. However he has made some rare finds when customers sell Doctor Who books to the bookstore he works at.

Alex is most proud of his Target Hardcover novelisations because they are so rare to find in good condition. He also finds that the covers appeal to his artistic interests. Currently hunting down the remaining 75 or so paperback Target novelisations and 1980s hardback novelisations he still needs, Alex keeps meticulous records of his collection so he always knows what he has. Having many decent to good condition Target paperback duplicates in his collection, he is open to trading for items he still needs.
