    Two amazing books. Three Stigmata is especially awesome, and quite profound.

    Not yet, no. I've been...*cough*...Dick-ing around too much.

    This is one of a host of books I could never "get into". Weaveworld and Stephen King's Tommyknockers, were books I tried to read many times, but always abandoned after two or three chapters.

    And the new covers for the old Barker books are incredibly lame.

    I'll have to disagree on two of the three (I've never gotten into Tommyknockers either)!



    Weaveworld is among my favorite urban/dark-fantasy novels. I think it is an incredible work of the imagination. There are moments in it that I will never, ever forget. They've been burned into my mind.

    I also like the new covers. I like that they are classier than the typical cliche-ridden horror cover. They add a bit of mystery to the work as well.

    Although, this cover for In The Flesh is wicked cool:

    I far prefer the original covers to Weaveworld (it's what made me buy the book in the first place), Cabal, and The Inhuman Condition. I think if i had never seen or owned the originals I would have been happy with the newer covers, but since I know what they were like before I have trouble accepting these.

    I'm like that with almost everything. I'm still in denial over the newer DVD cover of The Thing.

    My dad reminded me of the education plan we have through his work, where I can get certain things related to my education (books, DVDs - because I am in ScriptWriting and it relates to my field of study) which are partially paid for by this plan, as well as tax deductable.

    So I made an order of 7 books from Amazon...

    These are all excellent... specially Simak's and Sturgeon's, yet I'm kind of a sucker for them.

    I recently got, second hand:

    BÖLL - The Clown
    JARRY - Ubu Roi and its sequels
    PETRARCH - Anthology
    MILLER - A Devil in Paradise

    Nice buys with the Bester, Sturgeon and Simak Meg.

    You're going to love both. Way Station is just amazing, and you already know my thoughts on More Than Human. Although, I do have to say that I like To Marry Medusa more.

    So why don't you ever participate in the sci-fi thread? Come on, now!

    I've posted a bunch of Sturgeon stuff and just yesterday I posted some thoughts on Way Station.

    We need some more discussion in that thread.

    Yeh I was trying to get "To Marry Medusa", but it seems to be completely out of print.

    Any idea if it is going to return to print sometime?

    I'm just still a little iffy about buying stuff from independent sellers on Amazon.

    As I said before, I've been ripped off many-a-time on eBay, and this seems very eBay-ish to me.

    For the last 7 months, I've been ordering exclusively from the marketplace and I've never had a problem.

    Order the one from Powells. They are totally legit. Largest book store in the world.

    I'll be going there in a few weeks for a huge shopping spree!

    They want $12.99 to ship to Canada, though, which is kind of ridiculous.

    I'm sure it'll get back in print, or I'll find it somewhere eventually.

    Ah, that sucks. If I come across one when I am there, I'll pick it up for ya.
