" In this universe the night was falling; the shadows were lengthening towards an east that would not know another dawn. But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning lingered; and along the path he once had followed, Man would one day go again"

Arthur C. Clarke Against the Fall of Night

New Arrivals

While at the cabin I did not order any used books. 
This is in contrast to my normal practice, because
I love knowing something is coming in the mail.
Okay I did order some new books but no SF.
But I placed a large order when I returned, for
one, because the shipping charges per book were
more reasonable. 

The items came nicely wrapped.

So far a good looking selection.

Some of my favourite covers in the order. Neat aliens 
and I what I thought was a Lehr city but this is by 
Bruce Pennington, I still love it.

The Bishop cover is by Melvyn Grant
The Aldiss Interpreter cover is by John Kirby

I agonized over the composition of the order
for a week or more (all part of the fun), it started 
with lots of Poul Anderson and ended with none.  
It was when I noticed the bookseller had this lovely copy
 of Robert's Kiteworld, a book I had heard about but never
 seen that I pulled the trigger and placed the order.
