  • Lass was on the mainland yesterday and picked up Stephen R Donaldson's The Gap into Ruin - this Day All Gods Die.

    Never read this series, in fact only ever read the Covenant Chronicles. Guess I'll be searching for the rest of this series now, eh?

    Any of you miscellanists read it?

      • I was hoping you'd chime in and give your recommendation, Things. Excellent. Now, to find the first four in the series.

            I have found this on the Surrey library reference section, but they don't say which library it is at. I wonder why

            • Just got back from a trip away to Yorkshire Dales. Bought a stack in a book sale. Years Best S.F. vols. 1&2 Harry Harrison & Brian Aldiss, S.F. Hall of Fame vols 1 & IIA Bob Silverberg, Again Dangerous Visions Harlan Ellison, The Black Mountains & Berserker by Fred Saberhagen. Went a bit OTT on the anthologies I think.

              • Ordered Mieville's Between Equal Rights and Moorcock's Into The Media Web (edited by the super cool John Davey who kindly arranged delivery ). My birthday's the 29th, so I can (and did!) get away with murder.

                  • Arthurian legends by Marie Trevelyvan.

                    A reprint of 1895 book chronicling Welsh folklore and history up to Owan Glyndwr. Rather appropriate for my hols.

                      • Just bought The Laughter of Carthage for £3.00. Think I'll wait till I find Byzantium Endures before I start it though.

                        • Virconium Nights: a splendid cover IMHO! But should I wait and get/read The Pastel City first I wonder?

                          Comment


                          • I'd probably read pastel city first. I'd definitely read byzantium before carthage. .
