There must be a saying about fewer things of greater quality being the most desirable outcome. That’s it for this week, just the one book.
The Chronicles of Master Li and Number Ten Ox by Barry Hughart [Subterranean Press, 2011 hardcover, signed by author, new] – fiction – fantasy – beautifully presented omnibus volume of three novels by Hughart: Bridge of Birds, The Story of Stone and Eight Skilled Gentlemen. I have already read Bridge of Birds in paperback edition, not the other two books. A thick book, 687 pages, thick creamy paper, nice page layouts, smallish but readable typeface. This will wait for just the right moment, probably later in the Fall or early Winter.
