Returning Home to…Books!


A bit of a glare on these, but returned home to find copies of:

—The advance reader copy of the Cabinet of Curiosities
—The Steampunk Bible (author copies—in stores now)
—Finch (Atlantic/Corvus UK paperback edition)
—Polish Shriek and Finch (well, okay, given to me in Poland)
—The Brazilian edition of my long story The Situation

Later, I’ll have photos of the books and other things acquired in our travels overseas, and then some posts on the actual visits.

Erm, not to mention Moomin stuff, pictured below, not including socks and deck of cards. (I should note some of it was gifted to us, and that although I went nuts in the Moomin store, it was thankfully offset by selling books at a con the last day in Finland. Whew.)

    Why is it that all the cover art on your overseas editions are so much more lovely than the US versions? I mean, it’s the text that really matters, but…I can’t say that I love any of the (US) covers that I own. But there are quite a few gorgeous foreign editions, particularly for Ambergris.

    Yay! Books! :D I wish I had the brain for a slightly more intelligent commentary than this, but alas: it’s all leaked out my ears. Hoping it comes back by morning.

    But. Yay! Books! :D

    Hi,,Good morning,i am Rahul ,from INDIA, i want to Read jeff Novels.i Like science fiction & Fantacy very much.
    i Believe Aliens & Ufo’s.
    i Believe our past Life & Rebirth is also on other planets as Aliens; in that planets Alien Life span is 1,000years,or 10,000years,or 100,000years; in that planets Aliens Live without polution(They use solar energy,not use petrol,diesel Like us);They are Looking so Beautiful compare to us(not Like as Hollywood film Aliens);God created Not only our Dirty planet,he also created,good world’s,for who people did good Things,in their past Life;if God is not Here,Then all planets,stars(suns),Asteroids,Black Holes are collapsed (crushed by Accident);
    i Think There is No Hell and No Heaven; God created only Hell Type of planets(Like our planet)& Heaven Type of planets;
    i Think There is No Ghost. if There is Ghost, Then God Didn’t created our planets&universe; Because,Ghost Destroy our planets & universe; only ourr past Life karma is Deside our Luck or Bad Luck; But suicide is Not Death,it is Against to GOD.
    Note:There are 9 planets,100 moons in our solar system,There are 10,000crores (100 Billions)above solar systems in our Galaxy,There are above 10,000crores (100 Billions)Galaxies in our Universe; There are Lot of universes in space;
