    Last book I bought in 2014 was Alan Garner's Boneland. I also got a free copy of Neil Gaiman's Stardust (Kindle format) from Amazon so not technically 'bought'.

    I received a Bol.com gift card (local Amazon concurrent), as part of my Christmas bonus. Ordered a copy of The Metatemporal Detective from their website and now also waiting patiently for it to turn up.

    Mike's Legends From The End Of Time, the DAW edition paperback from 1977 in excellent condition. Purchased from Ebay, so I will have to patiently await its arrival.

    Well, I didn't buy it but a wonderful mate of mine in the UK sent it as a chrissie prezzie. One of the Ballards I've put off reading for many a year. My Brit friend is very good at picking info from my threads on the interweebs, I'd have to say.

    As I had finished Richard Flanagan's The Narrow Road to the Deep North.

    I went looking for the more famous Japanese book by Matsuo Basho.

    Still struggling to find any RA Lafferty in my book shop wanderings. It helps when I look for the right author. Initially I was looking for JJ Rafferty which isn't very bright. Doh!
    Well, if you ever get really desperate for some Lafferty, feel free to contact me. There was a small trove of his stuff at the store and I doubt it's going anywhere anytime soon.

    Book hunting in a thrift store off the beaten path today, picked up a book club edition hardcover of SF Authors' Choice: 4 edited by Harry Harrison for a whopping 54 cents. Looks like an interesting and fun read with short stories by 15 authors that include Arthur C. Clarke, Jack Vance, Brian W. Aldiss Roger Zelazny, Thomas M. Disch, Gordon R. Dickson, Clifford D. Simak, Robert Sheckley.

    Great trilogy. Very funny and imaginative.
