Oregon coast haul

Somewhat delayed, here's the damage done to my want list over my Oregon coast vacation. There are a couple of truly excellent used book stores in Lincoln City, particularly Robert's, and I got very lucky at the surplus book store in the outlet mall.

Poul Anderson, Agent of the Terran Empire (sff)
Eleanor Arnason, Changing Women (sff)
Barrington J. Bayley, The Grand Wheel (sff)
Peter S. Beagle, The Folk of the Air (sff)
Anne Bishop, The Pillars of the Wold (sff)
Michael Bishop, Unicorn Mountain (sff)
James P. Blaylock, Homunculus (sff)
Algis Budrys, Rogue Moon (sff)
Joy Chant, When Voiha Wakes (sff)
John Clute, Appleseed (sff)
Samuel R. Delany, Stars in My Pocket Like Grains of Sand (sff)
Thomas M. Disch, On Wings of Song (sff)
Greg Egan, Quarantine (sff)
John M. Ford, Growing Up Weightless (sff)
William Goldman, The Princess Bride (sff)

Robin McKinley, Deerskin (sff)
Lyda Morehouse, Fallen Host (sff)
Janet E. Morris, High Couch of Silistra (sff)

Philip Pullman, The Amber Spyglass (sff)
Philip Pullman, The Subtle Knife (sff)
Bruce Sterling, Crystal Express (sff)
Robert Louis Stevenson, Catriona (classic)
Robert Louis Stevenson, David Balfour (classic)
Rex Stout, And Four to Go (mystery)
Rex Stout, Fer-De-Lance (mystery)
Sydney J. van Scyoc, Darkchild (sff)
Ian Watson, Deathhunter (sff)
Gene Wolfe, In Green's Jungles (sff)
Jack Womack, Elvissey (sff)
John C. Wright, The Golden Transcendence (sff)
John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids (sff)
Jane Yolen, Briar Rose (sff)
Jane Yolen, Cards of Grief (sff)

As you can see, there's a huge variety of stuff here, even in other genres. I finally managed to track down a copy of Robert Louis Stevenson's David Balfour, the sequel to Kidnapped that I've been wanting to read ever since I finished the original. Another delightful find was Changing Women, the second half of the paperback split of A Woman of the Iron People, which I've been wanting to read but only had the first part of. And I tracked down a copy of Fallen Host, the second book in Lyda Morehouse's four book series, out of print and almost impossible to find for a reasonable price on-line.

I'm also rather happy about finding two omnibus Diana Wynne Jones collections, since her books are extremely difficult to find around here for some reason and I've been wanting to see what all the fuss is about. The couple that I've read by her weren't really that representative.
