" 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

After a long and anxious wait I received my shipment from the UK. As always there seems to be a faint smell of damp. I love anthologies and I am always looking for UK anthologies and novels to get some different covers, stories, and authors. I occasionally see the anthologies in bookstores in Canada but I also cannot resist getting some from ABE.

I tried the isfdb database but could not identify a number of the cover artists.

The Stainless Steel Rat's Revenge cover artist?
New Writings in SF.23 cover artist?
New Writings in SF.22 cover artist?
The Years's Best SF.9 cover artist?

 Secrets of The Wankh cover artist Peter Goodfellow
Pictures at an Exhibition cover artist Pete Lyon
Yet More Penguin Science Fiction cover, detail from Roberto Matta's The Angry One
Shadrach in the Furnace cover David Cox Studios
