Book haul

Here, belatedly, is the latest haul from Powell's, filling in holes in my collections as well as picking up books I've been meaning to read for a while.

Iain M. Banks -- The Player of Games
David Brin -- Heaven's Reach
Jacqueline Carey -- Kushiel's Chosen
Laurell K. Hamilton -- A Caress of Twilight
Laurell K. Hamilton -- A Kiss of Shadows
Laurell K. Hamilton -- Nightseer
Barry Hughart -- Bridge of Birds
Ursula K. Le Guin -- The Left Hand of Darkness
Ursula K. Le Guin -- Tehanu
Ursula K. Le Guin -- The Tombs of Atuan
C.S. Lewis -- Out of the Silent Planet
C.S. Lewis -- Perelandra
C.S. Lewis -- That Hideous Strength
C.S. Lewis -- The Four Loves
George R. R. Martin -- A Game of Thrones
Walter M. Miller, Jr. -- A Canticle for Leibowitz
John Ney Rieber -- The Books of Magic: Bindings
John Ney Rieber -- The Books of Magic: Summonings
John Ney Rieber -- The Books of Magic: Transformations
Stanley Schmidt (ed.) -- Analog's Children of the Future
Jill Thompson -- Death: At Death's Door

The third Books of Magic collection is on backorder. I have the comics as well, but I like having collections like that in graphic novel form.

I've almost completed my C.S. Lewis collection at this point; I just have a few other non-fiction books of his that I'd like to have.

Analog's Children of the Future reprints "Emergence" by David R. Palmer, which is one of the best short stories that I've read. It's also been expanded into a novel, which I should hunt up at some point, but the short story is magical and I've wanted to own it for a decade.

Great collection of books, Le Guin and C S Lewis are particular favorites of mine.....I see Tombs of Atuan made your list, I prefered A Wizard of Earthsea, and my favorite work of Lewis's was "The Screwtape Letters"....Well that's my opinion, for what it's worth :)

If you're confused by some of the events in Reiber's "Books of Magic", try also getting his "Book of Faerie" and "Book of Oberon", which fill in gaps in the BoM arcs.

I didn't care for them much, so if you want the collections after the first three, you can have mine. Send me e-mail.
