Seak - I am so jealous of your used book store. I make the occasional find at mine but it is the rare needle in the haystack. I keep going back though b/c I just love the used book store vibe, the independent spirit of the little guy running his own business. The dude who runs this store is overrun - I dont know if he ever refuses a book that is brought into him for store credit.

Went out on a limb and got the 36 books of the discworld series (I hope hehe). Reviews seem to be positive almost all around and the glimpses I´ve read seems to be like a winner.
Now all I have to do is wait for them to arrive in the mailbox, though hopefully not all at once.

I forgot, I also found the entire Coldfire Trilogy, which I was really excited about.

Gosh, this spending spree has got to stop.
I found Martin's Dreamsongs for $5.99 a piece at Borders yesterday. Bought it and half way through The Hedge Knight (also half way through his screenplay of the Twighlight zone). I could not stop reading last night.

Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco - more in the Historical fiction realm I think but it sounds great and I really remember enjoying the movie with Sean Connery and Mathew Broderick.

High Bloods by John Farris. I think this only just hit the stands. It apparently deals with lycanthrope and how it affects society. If the glossary -- nothing extensive, mostly brief explanations of street lingo -- is any indication, Farris was having some fun with this idea.

On top of the previous books I listed I also just realised that Felix Gilman's second novel Gears of the City has just come out, so I ordered that off Amazon. Absolutely loved Thunderer.
