INCOMING

Took a trip to a used book store in Baltimore this week.  The main thing I got out of it was that my GPS hates Baltimore.  (And, oh, I did get two books -- guess which ones.)

  • "Antony Alban" [Anthony A. Thompson], Catharsis Central.  SF novel about a tranqued-out world.
  • John connelly, The Lovers.  A Charlie Parker thriller.
  • Edmund Cooper, Transit.  SF novel about four people transported to an alien world via a crystal.
  • Matthew J. Costello, Beneath Still Waters (Horror.  I picked up the Berkley MTI edition that proclaims "NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE -- LOOK FOR IT ON DVD!"  Something's wrong with that blurb, amigo.) and  DOOM3:  Worlds on Fire.  Book One in the gaming tie-in series.
  • J. T. Ellison, The Immortals. A Taylor Jackson mystery.
  • Rick Hautala, Dark Silence and Night Stone.  Horror novels by that well-known horror writer from Maine.  No.  Not that one.  The other one.
  • William W. Johnstone, Carnival.  Horror.
  • William W. Johnstone, with J. A. Johnstone, Sidewinders:  Massacre at Whiskey Flats.  Western.
  • Stephen Jones, editor, The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, Volume 15.  Annual goody bag with 25 stories covering 2003.
  • James Patrick Kelly, Look Into the Sun.  Science fiction.
  • Louis l'Amour, Bendigo Shafter.  Western.
  • Jane Langton, Dark Nantucket Moon.  A Homer Kelly mystery.
  • Laurence Manning, The Man Who Awoke.  Classic SF.  The Ballantine edition says this is a novel that was serialized in Wonder Stories in 1933.  Actually, it's a collection of five linked stories.
  • Andrew Neiderman, Sight Unseen.  Horror novel from the guy who has been ghosting the V. C. Andrews books for many years.
  • Mel Odom, Hellgate:  London:  Exodus, Goetia, and Covenant.  Gaming tie-in trilogy.
  • Josephine Pinkney, Three O'Clock Dinner.  Novel.
  • David Robbins, Spook Night.  Horror.
  • Theodore Roszak, The Memoirs of Elizabeth Frankenstein.  Horror.  The saga told from the viewpoint of Victor's adopted sister/wife.
  • Isaac Bashevis Singer, A Crown of Feathers.  Two dozen short stories (many fantasy) by the Nobel Prize winning author.
  • Thomas Tessier, Rapture.  Horror.
  • F. Paul Wilson, Healer.  An early LaNague Federation SF novel.

Kitty snagged a dozen books or so and Dawn added to our pile.  Because I'm still drying out, however, I'll list them later.
