I've just bought.... (Fantasy, version V)
Since 450 seems the cutoff number, time to start a new one of these popular threads.
My coworkers gave me a Barnes and Noble gift card for my birthday and I recently used it to purchase three books. One of which is fantasy; a book I've been anticipating for quite some time:
Gentlemen of the Road by Michael Chabon

Actually this one can be read for free online from the NYT magazine (search) in 15 chapters. They can also be downloaded and merged in a single file with a free html merger utility or directly with copy paste.

I've been on a book buying binge the last two or three months, I'm afraid, most of it horror or fantasy:
Haunted America ed. by Marvin Kaye
Reave the Just and Other Stories by Stephan Donaldson
The 6th Messiah by Mark Frost
The Unquiet by John Connolly (hc)
Woman between the Worlds by F. Gwynplaine MacIntyre
Valley of Lights by Stephen Gallagher
The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror: 20th edition
Dark Harvest by Norman Partridge
Twilight by William Gay
In the Forest of Forgetting by Theodora Goss
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Omnibus Volume 1
Majestrum: A Tale of Henghis Hapthorn by Matthew Hughes
Lord Byron's Novel by John Crowley
Armeggedon Rag by George R.R. Martin
The Bone Key by Sarah Monette
20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill
When I'll get to read any of them ... well, I did read the Partridge already, so I guess there's hope.

Hm, well I've been reading The Deeds of Paksenarrion lately (so slowly, too, erk been an...eventful...last few weeks).
So, I picked up Surrender None, the first one in The Legacy of Gird by Moon as well (a kind of prequel I take it to the Paks' books).
I also found, finally, Wanderers and Islanders by Steve Cockayne, which is the first in the Legends of the Land series.
Been buying lots of non-genre lately, but have a few fantasy on order. Soon I'll finally be able to start reading Wolfe for the November bookclub.
