Vacation book haul

I wasn't sure if we were going to stop by many bookstores in this somewhat abbreviated Oregon Coast trip, but we decided on Monday to spend some time in book stores in and around Lincoln City, so I ended up getting something close to my usual haul. This was particularly helped by a desire to support local businesses during the current economy and broader review reading leading to a lot of additions to my want list.

Kage Baker — The Empress of Mars (sff)
Galen Beckett — The Magicians and Mrs. Quent (sff)
Steven Brust & Emma Bull — Freedom & Necessity (sff)
Tobias S. Buckell — Ragamuffin (sff)
Jack Campbell — The Lost Fleet: Dauntless (sff)
David Anthony Durham — Acacia (sff)
Michael Flynn — The Wreck of The River of Stars (sff)
David Gemmell — Dark Moon (sff)
Mary Gentle — Golden Witchbreed (sff)
Steven Gould — Jumper (sff)
Temple Grandin & Catherine Johnson — Animals Make Us Human (non-fiction)
Barbara Hambly — The Ladies of Mandrigyn (sff)
Robert Holdstock — Lavondyss (sff)
Katharine Kerr — Daggerspell (sff)
Ken Kesey — Sometimes a Great Notion (mainstream)
Donald Kingsbury — Courtship Rite (sff)
Mercedes Lackey — Exile's Valor (sff)
Keith Laumer — Worlds of the Imperium (sff)
Tanith Lee — Metallic Love (sff)
Seanan McGuire — Rosemary and Rue (sff)
Susan Palwick — The Necessary Beggar (sff)
H. Beam Piper — Lord Kalvan of Otherwhen (sff)
H. Beam Piper — Space Viking (sff)
Charles Stross — Wireless (sff)
Henry Treece — The Dark Island (sff)
A.E. Van Vogt — The Voyage of the Space Beagle (sff)
Joan D. Vinge — Psion (sff)
Margaret Weis — The Lost King (sff)
Gene Wolfe — An Evil Guest (sff)

A lot of this is first books of various series that I've been wanting to test and see if they're worth reading. Those I should hold off on as much as possible until I finish series that I've already started. We'll see how that theory works.
