New York book haul

Back from New York, and in need of sleep. I’ll post about the trip later, but in the meantime, here’s my book haul:

I’m pleased to get the US editions of Ready Player One and The Quantum Thief, as I’ve never been keen on the UK covers. How to Live Safely in a Science Fiction Universe is also a lovely ragged-edge hardcover (the hardcover under the dust jacket is metallic silver).

I also hit Midtown Comics in Times Square and grabbed Flashpoint #5 and Justice League #1, as I ran out of time to read them last week before I left the UK.

  • The Charles Yu is amazing – still one of my books of the year. Absolutely wonderful book. The Quantum Thief, on the other hand, I threw across the room. And didn’t throw across the room… all at once. 

    Enjoy! 🙂

  • Gee, I’m looking forward to reading that one then :p Glad I picked up the Charles Yu one – found that at the airport on the way home, actually!

  • [Sorry, double post.]

  • I just don’t get the love for Cherie Priest.

    Otherwise, that’s a lot of fun in one neat little pile, there. What Louise said in particular — except the bit about The Quantum Thief. It ain’t easy, but it is incredibly rewarding if you give it your all. Which is exactly what Rajaneimi asks.
