Classic haul

With all the other things going on in life right now, one of the things that's suffering is reading. My yearly total is likely to be far below the last few years, although a bit after the Olympics I do get to have a week of vacation which is going to be devoted mostly to reading and playing video games.

But, of course, that doesn't mean I can stop buying books, particularly since there are new books out by a few authors I like to support. I also picked up some very nice classic editions of some famous books.

Elizabeth Bear — Hell and Earth (sff)
Philip K. Dick — Four Novels of the 1960s (sff)
Philip K. Dick — Five Novels of the 1960s and 1970s (sff)
Thomas M. Disch — The Dreams Our Stuff is Made Of (nonfiction)
Richard P. Feynman — The Feynman Lectures on Physics: The Definitive Edition (nonfiction)
Ralph Keyes — Nice Guys Finish Seventh (nonfiction)
Karl Schroeder — Pirate Sun (sff)
Charles Stross — Saturn's Children (sff)

After reading a lot about Feynman recently, I finally decided that I wanted to own a copy of his lectures on physics, even if I'm not likely to read them soon. The Library of America has published two very nice collections of Philip K. Dick's short novels, and I couldn't resist picking those up, particularly since I'd only read one of the nine novels included in them.
