  • Jerry Ahern - The Defender #8:  Justice Denied and Track #8:  Revenge of the Master.  Two different men's adventure series novels; Sharn Ahern is also listed in the copyright of the Defender book.
  • Kingsley Amis - The Crime of the Century.  Mystery.
  • C. J. Cherryh - Gate of Ivrel.  Fantasy.
  • "Tabor Evans" - Longarm #116:  Longarm and the Blood Bounty.  Adult western.
  • Michael Genelin - Siren of the Waters.  Mystery (a Commander Jana Matinova investigation) that Dawn contributed to the cause, along with a very high recommendation.
  • Stephen Leigh - Ray Bradbury Presents Dinosaur World.  SF novel based on a Bradbury concept; the first in a series of six books.
  • Eric Lustbader -  Floatin City and Second Skin.  Nicholas Linnear thrillers.
  • Steve Martini - Garden of Lies.  Thriller.  Another on from Dawn because she thinks we  don't have enough books.
  • "A. J. Matthews" (Rick Hautala) - Follow.  Horror.
  • Archer Mayor - Occam'sRazor.  A Joe Gunther mystery.
  • Shawna McCarthy, editor - Isaac Asimov's Space of Her Own (abridged).  Seventeen stories written by women, from IASFM.
  • Annie Proulx - The Shipping News. The Pulitzar Prize-winning novel.  Another donation from Dawn.
  • Sax Rohmer - The Green Spider and Other Forgotten Tales of Mystery and Suspense and The Leopard Couch and Other Stories of the Fantastic & Supernatural.  Volumes 1 and 2 in Black Dog Books' Sax Rohmer Library, with thirteen stories each.  Great stuff.  I can't say enough about this company.  (BTW, Battered Silicon Dispatch Box is releasing several new volumes of Rohmer stories; those, too, should be interesting.)
  • Michael Ruetz, photographer - Scottish Symphony.  Large coffee table book with pictures of all the places in Scotland that Kitty can't walk until she gets better.  Another book from Dawn, presumably to motivate Kitty to get back into fighting form.
  • A. Kingsley Russell, possible editor (he wrote the introduction) - Science Fiction by the Rivals of H. G. Wells.  Twenty-six examples (more of less) of proto-SF from the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  One "story" is actually six pieces from George Griffith's Honeymoon in Space; another is the complete serialization of Cutcliffe Hyne's The Lost Continent as it appeared in Pearson's Magazine.
  • Raymond W. Thorp & Robert Bunker - Crow Killer.  Fictionalized biography of Liver-Eating Johnson.  This paperback edition is a quasi tie-in to the Robert Redford movie Jeremiah Johnson.  ("A fantastic the subjecct of the tremendous Warner Bros. film...")  A check at IMDB shows that this book got some of the story credit for that film, but the majority of the film was based on Vardis Fisher's novel Mountain Man.
  • Joseph A. West -Gunsmoke:  Blizzard of Lead.   A much after the fact television tie-in novel.  This is the third in a series and has an introduction from Marshall Dillon himself, James Arness.
  • Chet Williamson - Mordenheim.  Horror.  A Ravenloft book issued by gaming company TSR.
