Initial Baycon haul

The dealer room at Baycon this year has been good to me. I would have liked to be able to find some more fantasy and some more recent stuff, since the new book selection and the used selection that isn't classic SF is a bit limited, but I've still been able to find quite a lot.

There will be more; there are some things that I'm going to pick up tomorrow that I haven't yet for a variety of reasons. But here's what I've gotten so far:

Peter S. Beagle -- The Last Unicorn (sff)
C.J. Cherryh -- Brothers of Earth (sff)
C.J. Cherryh -- The Faded Sun: Kutath (sff)
C.J. Cherryh -- The Faded Sun: Shon'jir (sff)
C.J. Cherryh -- Hunter of Worlds (sff)
C.J. Cherryh -- Serpent's Reach (sff)
C.J. Cherryh -- Visible Light (sff)
Samuel R. Delany -- The Einstein Intersection (sff)
Lord Dunsany -- The King of Elfland's Daughter (sff)
Mary Gentle -- A Hawk in Silver (sff)
Harry Harrison -- The Adventures of the Stainless Steel Rat (sff)
David G. Hartwell & Kathryn Cramer (ed.) -- Year's Best SF 9 (sff)
Robert A. Heinlein -- Citizen of the Galaxy (sff)
Robert A. Heinlein -- Double Star (sff)
Robert A. Heinlein -- The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (sff)
Frank Herbert -- Whipping Star (sff)
Katherine Kurtz -- Deryni Rising (sff)
Mercedes Lackey -- Sacred Ground (sff)
Fritz Leiber -- The Wanderer (sff)
Vonda N. McIntyre -- Starfarers (sff)
Vonda N. McIntyre -- Superluminal (sff)
Ken Macleod -- The Cassini Division (sff)
Elizabeth Moon -- The Speed of Dark (sff)
Larry Niven -- Limits (sff)
Larry Niven -- A World Out of Time (sff)
Larry Niven & Steven Barnes -- The Barsoom Project (sff)
Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle -- Oath of Fealty (sff)
George Orwell -- Animal Farm (f)
Robert Silverberg -- A Time of Changes (sff)
Dan Simmons -- Hard Freeze (f)
Sean Stewart -- Passion Play (sff)
James White -- Mind Changer (sff)

Most of what's likely still coming is Zelazny.

It occurs to me that you might quite like going to the Friends of the Palo Alto Library booksales. They have a fairly good selection of sf books (amongst the many other things); it's the main way that Suzanne and I have been building up our collection for the past few years.

Thanks! I'm a member, and keep meaning to go, but haven't actually gone yet. It's often hard for me to get out to things like that without some advance planning, and I wasn't sure how good they'd be. But with that knowledge, I think I'll prod myself to do it.

_The Speed of Dark_, _A World out of Time_ and _The Moon is a Harsh Mistress_ are similar in one way: they're quite different from anything else that author has ever written, and much better for it.
