Small but lovely haul

A few things for which I'd been waiting for quite some time were released, so there was another book order.

Allie Brosh — Hyperbole and a Half (graphic novel)
Jacqueline Carey — Dark Currents (sff)
Debra Dunbar — A Demon Bound (sff)
Nicola Griffith — Hild (historical)
Ursula K. Le Guin — The Unreal and the Real, Volume 1 (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — The Unreal and the Real, Volume 2 (sff)
Ken Stern — With Charity for All (non-fiction)

I'm trying to buy fewer books given how many I have and haven't read, and also because I've been on a gaming tear recently and there are only so many hours in the day. Unfortunately, playing a lot of video games means reading fewer books. So I'm trying for quality rather than quantity, and this particular order has one of the best densities of hopefully good books as anything I've ordered in a while.

For those who aren't familiar with Allie Brosh, Hyperbole and a Half is one of the most brilliant blogs that I've ever read, and this is a collection plus new stories and new illustrations. I specifically got the hardcover, which is beautiful and very high-quality.

I've been waiting for Hild for years since Griffith started talking about writing it on her blog, and now I have the lovely hardcover in my hands. That's probably going to be Christmas reading.

The Le Guin is a two-volume hardcover collection of Le Guin's personal favorites from her large lifetime oeuvre of short fiction.
