Two things from Haffner Press, ordered after George Kelley did a review. I already had quite a few other books published by Haffner, but not these two. Also two things picked up from BookSwap, also after reading reviews, both from Friday Forgotten Books. So here’s the cover scans, and then the info.
Note: I’m sorry WordPress decided to go the slideshow route, imitating Blogger, I don’t much care for it, but we were given no choice. If you want to see the image full size, click on “permalink” below that image.
Lorelei of the Red Mist by Leigh Brackett, foreword by Ray Bradbury, introduction by Harry Turtledove [Haffner Press 2007 hardcover, new] – science fiction / fantasy – As mentioned above, ordered after reading George Kelley’s review. This is subtitled “Planetary Romances” and contains 12 works of varying length, some short stories, a couple nearly novelette length. This copy is signed by Turtledove. Haffner publishes beautiful books.
My Favorite Fantasy Story edited by Martin H. Greenberg [DAW 2000 paperback, used] – fantasy – fantasy authors pick their favorite stories, an interesting mix.
Shannach – The Last by Leigh Brackett, introduction by Anne McCaffrey [Haffner Press 2011 hardcover, new] – science fiction / fantasy – As mentioned above, ordered after reading George Kelley’s review. This is subtitled “Farewell to Mars” and contains 17 stories. As I said above, but it bears repeating, Haffner publishes beautiful books.
Starbridge by A.C. Crispin [Ace Science Fiction, 1989 paperback, used] – science fiction – this is the first in the so far 7 book Starbridge series, in which mankind encounters their first intelligent alien species. I’ve seen these referred to as both adult and YA books. Don’t know my opinion, haven’t read this yet.
