Thanks to a lot of OT at work, bought these today...

1984 by George Orwell

Mythology by Edith Hamilton

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Vol. 1 by Alan Moore

I am really looking forward to The Blade Itself and Winterbirth the most.

I jumped on one of SubPress's deals the other day (buy one get two free (1 ARC 1 Signed)). I pre-ordered Hunter's Run, and they sent me a signed The Lost Lansdale: Volume 3 (of which I am a huge fan), and a ARC of the first book in their Silverberg collection.

edit: not bad for $50.

James Barclay - Cry of the Newborn

Steph Swainston - The Year of Our War

£3 for the pair from The Works, and the Barclay was the trade paperback. UK fans may want to check out your local branch!

Robert Harris - Imperium (thanks to duty-free)

The Blade Itself

Winterbirth: These look fun in a gory dark violent way.

Soon I Will Be Invincible: The blurb on this was funny. I don't care for superheros but this looks oddball enough for me.

Crooked Little Vein: Stego sold me on this. Godzilla bukkake. I'm there.
