Holiday haul

Catching up on accumulated book purchases. I'm going to get another burst of reading time over the holidays (and am really looking forward to it).

Alfred Bester — The Stars My Destination (sff)
James Blish — A Case of Conscience (sff)
Leigh Brackett — The Long Tomorrow (sff)
Algis Budrys — Who? (sff)
Frances Hardinge — Fly By Night (sff)
Robert A. Heinlein — Double Star (sff)
N.K. Jemisin — The Obelisk Gate (sff)
N.K. Jemisin — The Stone Sky (sff)
T. Kingfisher — Clockwork Boys (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — City of Illusions (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — The Complete Orsinia (historical)
Ursula K. Le Guin — The Dispossessed (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — Five Ways to Forgiveness (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — The Left Hand of Darkness (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — Planet of Exile (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — Rocannon's World (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — The Telling (sff)
Ursula K. Le Guin — The World for Word Is Forest (sff)
Fritz Leiber — The Big Time (sff)
Melina Marchetta — Saving Francesca (mainstream)
Richard Matheson — The Shrinking Man (sff)
Foz Meadows — An Accident of Stars (sff)
Dexter Palmer — Version Control (sff)
Frederick Pohl & C.M. Kornbluth — The Space Merchants (sff)
Adam Rex — True Meaning of Smekday (sff)
John Scalzi — The Dispatcher (sff)
Julia Spencer-Fleming — In the Bleak Midwinter (mystery)
R.E. Stearns — Barbary Station (sff)
Theodore Sturgeon — More Than Human (sff)

I'm listing the individual components except for the Orsinia collection, but the Le Guin are from the Library of America Hainish Novels & Stories two-volume set. I had several of these already, but I have a hard time resisting a high-quality Library of America collection for an author I really like. Now I can donate a bunch of old paperbacks.

Similarly, a whole bunch of the older SF novels are from the Library of America American Science Fiction two-volume set, which I finally bought since I was ordering Library of America sets anyway.

The rest is a pretty random collection of stuff, although several of them are recommendations from Light. I was reading through her old reviews and getting inspired to read (and review) more.
