Book Haul - From Australia

This Book Haul is courtesy of the great ChrisW of sffmania fame among others. I won this from his site (linked above), which you should really visit because it's awesome...and not because he just paid me off. :)

Writer of the Future - Runsible Tales by Neal Asher - This is a chapbook that looks great. I've been meaning to read some Asher but only own Gridlinked, but besides reading the back

Postscripts by Multiple Authors - This even has signatures from authors such as Peter F. Hamilton and more. Very cool.

Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson - This is the UK edition, the edition with some of the best artwork, although the new ones are looking pretty good too. If you haven't already, I'd recommend taking the plunge into the Malazan Book of the Fallen. It's one of my all-time favorite series ever of always anytime. :)
The Malazan Empire simmers with discontent, bled dry by interminable warfare, bitter infighting and bloody confrontations. Even the imperial legions, long inured to the bloodshed, yearn for some respite. Yet Empress Laseen's rule remains absolute, enforced by her dread Claw assassins.

For Sergeant Whiskeyjack and his squad of Bridgeburners, and for Tattersail, surviving cadre mage of the Second Legion, the aftermath of the siege of Pale should have been a time to mourn the many dead. But Darujhistan, last of the Free Cities of Genabackis, yet holds out. It is to this ancient citadel that Laseen turns her predatory gaze.

However, it would appear that the Empire is not alone in this great game. Sinister, shadowbound forces are gathering as the gods themselves prepare to play their hand . . .

Conceived and written on a panoramic scale, Gardens of the Moon is epic fantasy of the highest order--an enthralling adventure by an outstanding new voice.


  1. Nice haul :) I'm seeing a lot more of Eriskson's books recently - maybe there's some subliminal pull to pick one of them up, hehe.

  2. Do it do it do it do it. I love 'em. They're insanely confusing but awesome. I like to call them - the most confusing thing you'll never forget.
