Post-vacation haul

After reading various reviews and hearing lots of recommendations, as well as an excellent article in Locus, I've been thinking about catching up on some of the less-known classics of the SF field, writers who don't get as many reprints but who are fondly thought of. NESFA has been doing a good job of reprinting several of those authors, so this is the first of what will probably be several orders from their catalog.

Charles L. Harness -- An Ornament to His Profession (sff)
Robert Sheckley -- Dimensions of Sheckley (sff)
Cordwainer Smith -- The Rediscovery of Man (sff)

These are all collections, the Sheckley of short novels and the others of short stories. They're all substantial hardcover volumes. Now I just have to find time to read them.

Currently reading: Faster by James Gleick and Incubus Dreams by Laurell K. Hamilton. I've finished Accelerando by Charles Stross and need to write a review. (Short version: good stuff, but Lady of Mazes was better.)
