In Topic: Additions to my bookshelf

Along with the rare Edge #61, I scooped up a few more neat books for my bookshelf;

1) Warrior of Llarn by Gardner F Fox-cool sword and planet with an unusual cover by Frank Frazetta-tiny sized Ace paperback from 1964.

2) The Burrower Beneath by Brian Lumley-the first of the Titus Crow books-Lovecraftian action from Daw books with a cool cover by Tim Kirk.

3) The Coming of the Horseclans by Robert Adams-book one of the series-always wanted to read these, just never got around to them, a buddy of mine during the early 80's thought they were the best.

4) Twilight of the Serpent by Peter Valentine Timlett-I have the The Power of the Serpent as well, so I will give these a shot-more Dark Ages blood and sacrifice than sword and sorcery, but could be fun.

5) Clark Ashton Smith Vol 2: Lost Worlds-a bunch of Smith's short stories from the pages of Weird Tales and the like-good pulpy weirdness!

6) In Yana, the Touch of Undying by Michael Shea-was lucky to stumble over this one, and for only $2-looking forward to digging into this one.

Got all of these books from the same store with prices ranging from $1-$3-my favorite store!

I am a big Arnold fan, but the accent did nothing for me as he portrayed Conan. It was fine in some films, but a handicap in others. Never hurt him at the box office though ...

Picked up a few books this weekend, but one was a bit of a catch, I think. It is Edge #61; The Rifle, by George G Gillman. From what I understand, this is the holy grail of western paperbacks, commanding asking prices of up to $1,500.00 for mint condition examples, if you can find one. I have no idea if mine is a collector's item, but I snatched it up anyway, having never seen one in the flesh before. Anyone out there know more about these books?

Sweet! I need a print version of Eric Brighteyes.
Going to Thunder Bay this weekend, and I will be popping into my favorite used bookstore; The Bookshelf.

I am going to start Harkfast tonight, it just sounds so interesting. I really like dark, bloody adventure from this timeframe-they didn't call it the "dark ages" for nothing, man!
