Bookstore Run 3

Posted by Mike on February 24, 2006

I managed to recreate the lists of books hauled last Thursday:

  • Ramsey Campbell – The Parasite (and I managed to leave a couple of his books off the previous list as well, The Hungry Moon and The Influence)
  • Avram Davidson – Rork! (One of several pulp books I grabbed from the same store, the rest marked*)
  • Barbara Hambly – Those Who Hunt the Night
  • Kathe Koja – Bad Brains
  • Fritz Leiber – A Spectre is Haunting Texas*
  • Carl Sagan – Contact (one of several scored cheap at thirft stores, the rest marked#)
  • Robert J. Swayer – Flashforward#
  • Lucius Shepard – Life During Wartime
  • Lucius Shepard – Kalimantan
  • Paul Levinson – The Silk Code
  • Joan D. Vinge – World’s End
  • S. P. Somtow – Vampire Junction
  • Ellen Datlow/Terri Windling ed. – The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror  Fifth Annual Collection
  • Michael Marshall Smith – One of Us (hb)#
  • Charles Pellegrino – Dust (hb)#
  • Philip Roth – Sabbath’s Theater (hb)
  • Saul Bellow – The Adventures of Augie March
  • William Kennedy – The Albany Novels
  • Gabriel Garcia Marquez – Collected Stories
  • Jose Saramago – Baltisar and Blimunda
  • Frank Belknap Long – The Hounds of Tindalos*
  • A. Merritt – The Ship of Ishtar*
  • A. Merritt – Face in the Abyss*
  • William Browning Spencer – Resume with Monsters
  • Eleanor Arnason – Ring of Swords
  • Jane Yolen ed. – Xanadu

And a few in the mail, the first two from Hippocampus Press (paying for the Blackwood got me the Merritt free):

  • Algernon Blackwood – Incredible Adventures
  • A. Merritt – The Metal Monster
  • Robert Anton Wilson – The Book of the Breast (this one has long been retitled Ishtar Rising and published by New Falcon, but I managed to find an original Playboy Press copy, which is much quainter and tackier, but far more collectible. And it has more boobs.)

Will be taking this weekend off hunting to maybe get some of this stuff read, but then again there’s a lot on the way too. Getting towards the end of Dan Simmons’ Fires of Eden, so hope to finish that one (at least).
