Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

Westerns, westerns, westerns...with a few others thrown in.
  • Piers Anthony, Total Recall.  SF Ahhr-nold movie tie-in.  Based on a screenplay, based on a screen story, based on a Phil Dick story.  A remake is supposedly in the works; may be interesting.
  • Raymond E. Feist, Magician:  Master.  Fantasy.  Volume II in the Riftwar Saga.  This is the author's preferred edition.
  • Bernhardt J. Hurwood, Haunted Houses.  Supposedly non-fiction collection about haunted houses written for the school-age market.  Isn't Hurwood the author of Dracutwig, the famously and amazingly bad novel, under the name "Mallory Knight"?
  • Louis L'Amour, Bowdrie (collection; 8 stories about the title character), Catlow, Conagher, Fallon, Galloway (#11 in The Sackett series), How the West Was Won (movie tie-in), The Key-Lock Man, Kid Rodelo, Kilkenny, Lando (#5 in the Sackett series), Law of the Desert Born (collection; 11 stories), The Man Called Noon, Mustang Man (#10 in the Sackett series), Ride the Dark Trail (#14 in the Sackett series), The Rustlers of West Fork (first of four Hopalong Cassidy novels originally published as by "Tex Burns"), Sackett (#4 in the Sackett series), Sackett's Land (first in the Sackett series), The Sky-Liners (#12 in the Sackett series), Son of a Wanted Man, The Trail to Crazy Man (collection of 3 novel-length stories originally published in the pulps), Under the Sweetwater Rim.  Westerns all -- I think it was L'Amour Day at the thrift store.
  • Ron Miller & Frederick C. Durant III, The Art of Chesley Bonestell.  Coffe table art book, with over 300 illustrations from the master of space painting.  Gorgeous!
  • Richard Paul Russo, The Rosetta Codex.  SF novel.
  • G. Clifton Wisler, Sam Delamer.  Western, part of the Delamer series.
  • Roger Zelazny & Neil Randall, Roger Zelazny's Visual Guide to Castle Amber.  Fun literary reference.


  1. Nice acquisitions. I have the L'Amours and the Anthony novelization, none of the rest.

  2. Love The Art of Chesley Bonestell!
