" 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

Wednesday my buddy Doug and I visited The Sentry Box in
Calgary. It is a large gaming store that also sells new and 
used books. They also maintain an accurate online 
database of stock so you can find out if they have what 
you want before you go. 

I love Kiernan's SF and HPL inspired stories, this novel got
a good review on Speculiction so I was looking for it.
Cover Gene Mollica.


I have discussed several of Lupoff's  HPL inspired stories on my 
HPL site so I was intrigued by these. 

Covers George Barr and James Warren.

Having finished Neuromancer I was able to pick up the next 
two sprawl novels. Covers Richard Berry?, Will Cormier.

And of course anthologies

Covers Lomberg and Darrell Sweet

Some great authors, Ken Lui, Aliette de Bodard, Robert Reed,
Vandna Singh, Liz Williams among others and I love that they 
are small format pbk, cheaper and easier to shelve, hint hint. 

Covers by Pye Parr

And I just have a soft spot for covers with critters like this on
them.  Cover unattributed


  1. Hello Guy, just put Second Nature on my to acquire list. I've never heard or read about her work.


  2. Hi Joachim

    I had never heard about this book or author either, but for $2 on the reduced rack it seemed worth a shot. I will try to get to it this week.
