BtBG Reader goes shopping!
Last month yours truly suffered a birthday, but the pain of aging yet another year was assuaged somewhat by a very respectable stack of bookstore giftcards!
Above are my first three acquisitions, Glen Cook's "Swordbearer", a book I read back in middle school and am looking forward to revisiting its dark Sword & Sorcery feel, "Shadowline", book one of Cook's Starfishers trilogy, which have long been out of print and I've never read, and a new Tor edition of Moorcock's "Jewel in the Skull", with very nice interior illustrations. I'm a sucker for interior illustrations. If you haven't read the Hawkmoon stuff yet, "Jewel in the Skull" is a great example of mixing dark fantasy with weird science fiction.
