I also picked up Remnant Population by Elizabeth Moon, Rendezvous With Rama by Arthur C. Clarke and Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, the latter two under Gollancz' Masterworks reprints.

I've ordered used copies of Serpent's Reach by C.J. Cherryh and Wild Seed by Octavia Butler. I've decided to make an effort to fill the gaps in my reading of the genre, starting with these two books written by women science fiction writers in the early 80s. I know the Cherryh is a relatively lesser known work in her oeuvre, but I've heard good things about it. I've heard lots of good things about the Butler for years. I would be interested in non-spoiler views from forum members who have read either books.

Off the top of my head, I can't remember which series Wild Seed is from. Is that a Xenosaga-somethingorother-book?

It's from her Patternists series. It's actually the fourth book written in that sries but first chronologically, and I think I read somewhere it was a good place to start. I'll give it a go and if it's any good I'll go back and read the others.

Traded in a bunch of books, walked out with a load more. These are the sci-fi ones I got.
Peace and War - Joe Haldeman
A Hymn Before Battle - John Ringo (Yes, it's Baen)
Stranger in a Strange Land - Robert A. Heinlein
I was hoping for Friday by Heinlein or Clarke's Childhood's End, but they had neither.

No, I was talking about Wild Seed because I couldn't remember the titles of the Lilith's Brood books (I read them in an omnibus)...

Finally got around to ordering the full Starship series by Mike Resnick in hardback, and also got my order in for The Naked God by Peter F Hamilton from Subterranean Press to complete the trilogy

That Xeno-thingy is Xenogenesis. Her other novel series is Patternists. I confuse them all the time.
She won 4 Hugos and Nebulas. Wow. It's so bad she's dead. She wrote beautiful stories on morality and the human condition. A great loss.
