    Just ordered from amazon:

    The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
    Red Seas under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
    The Right Hand of Doom and other Tales of Solomon Kane by Robert E. Howard.
    Swords and Dark Magic: The New Sword and Sorcery - Anthology
    The Blade itself by Joe Abercrombie

    Very excited to sink my teeth into some Robert E. Howard and some sword and sorcery, as I'm unexperienced in that particular genre.

    Beneath by Jeremy Robinson... great idea for a story; so poorly executed and so badly written that it ruins everything.

    American Conspiracies by Jesse Ventura & Dick Russell... not alot I hadn't already heard from various other sources, but still an entertaining read.

    Extremes: A Retrieval Artist Novel by Kristine Kathryn Rusch... another very solid addition to the series, and some of the most original SF you'll find out there. So far it's very enjoyable.

    That is quite a great list you have there. I am curious to see the short stories that are available in the Howard collection as I read his Savage Tales of Solomon Kane and that was the entire collection. I really enjoyed it, the pulp fiction era was a time of great story telling. You should have a great time with your list.

    Legends arrived this morning. It's huge! I ordered a hardback edition, and the "dual cover" has really confused me. I thought I had it the right way up but it wasn't

    Well, plenty of stories to keep me quiet for a while.

    Just picked up Perdido Street Station by Mieville. Seems like an interesting read so far.

    I got two more books today! £2 each from a discount bookstore in Halifax.

    Magician - Raymond E. Feist
    The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch

    They had a load of Feist books there, surprisingly. They weren't there last time, but mind you it's been months since I last visited. Could have spent much more of my mum's money

    You should get Mirror Kingdoms by Beagle, now that Amazon still has it. It's alreasy old ouyt from the publisher even though it was a ( limited) February 2010 release. Expansive collection and very worthwhile.

    I just placed orders on Amazon for The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi, a biopunk science fiction novel, and Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, a steampunk science fiction novel with zombies. Both are up for the Hugo Award for best novel at Aussiecon this week so I feel I'm a bit late on the bandwagon.

    I hope you enjoy Boneshaker more than I did. I just could not get invested in the characters. Priest nailed down Seattle though. It was interesting to read about my hometown in the early days.
