Charles (kainja) | 426 comments Some good reading there. Some maybe not quite so good. :)

Yep, some really good stuff in there -- you can never go wrong with Vance, Moore, Howard, Leiber. I also enjoyed Brust and Gemmell. And I really, really need to read more Brackett.

Thomas Cardin | 9 comments What a haul! My wife would shoot me if I brought any more books in the house. I am pretty much at the mercy of what's available in the library or on my kindle. Combed through all the stuff on project gutenberg as well.

Enjoy your reading!

Randy Harmelink | 800 comments Boy, would I like to load all of those on my Kindle.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Ha, ha, thanks. I did pretty well on these. I had my arms full with these. If I could get these books on Kindle it would have saved me a lot of trouble. :P Most of them are out of print and/or not available on Kindle. A few I just happened to see from my wish list and snatch up and some of the others just caught my eye.

Geeze, I don't know when I'll actually get to read them. :P I still have a pile of Kothar and Kyrik to get through. I'm planning to spend the three day weekend putting a serious dent in my reading pile. Let's see how well I do!

Dan (TheGreatBeast) | 213 comments Did you just pick them all up from a book fair or used book shop, or did you order online?


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I got these books from two used book stores in Philadelphia. Going through Amazon costs you an arm and a leg in shipping even if the book prices are low. :\

Dan (TheGreatBeast) | 213 comments I figured. I try not to order paperbacks online unless I really can't find them anywhere else an I am intent on reading (like Karl Edward Wagner's books).
