Some fairly interesting books in the thrift shops this week.  (I've noticed, by the way, that every thrift shop in existence must have at least one copy of a Rod McKuen book on their shelves.  It must be a law, do you think?)
  • Carr, Terry, editor.  Creatures from Beyond.  SF anthology.  Nine stories, many familiar; still a very good collection.
  • Cerasini, Marc.  AVP:  Alien Vs. Predator.  Movie tie-in.
  • Cornwell, Bernard.  Stonehenge.  Historical novel with fantasy overtones.
  • Erdoes, Richard & Alfonso Ortiz, editors.  American Indian Myths and Legends.  Folklore, containing 166 American Indian myths.  Neat, huh?
  • Faucher, Elizabeth.  The Addams Family.  Movie tie-in, juvenile.
  • "Grant, Maxwell" (Walter B. Gibson).  The Creeping Death.  Pulp hero novel, first published in Shadow Magazine, January 15, 1933.  This edition is #14 in the Pyramid Books reprint series.
  • Kelton, Elmer.  The Time It Never Rained.  Western, winner of the Spur Award.  This edition is from Texas Christian University Press, #2 in their The Chishom Trail Series.
  • Little, Bentley.  The Collection.  Horror novel.
