This weekend I visited family in PA and was fortunate enough to stumble across my uncle's extensive science fiction collection. Behold my plunder and a big thanks to my uncle for his 'loan'. You have just got to love these covers, especially the Dorsai! one--I would add an "!" but the title beat me to it. My plunder:
Dorsai!, by Gordon R. Dickson [US][UK] Soldier Ask Not, by Gordon R. Dickson [US][UK] Cities in Flight (1962), by James Blish [US][UK] The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (1966), by Robert A. Heinlein [US][UK] The Weapon Shops of Isher (1951), by A.E. Van Vogt [US][UK] The Weapon Makers (1952), by A.E. Van Vogt [US][UK] Bio of a Space Tyrant Vol. 5 (1986), by Piers Anthony [US][UK] The Man Who Wanted Stars(1965), by Dean McLaughlin [US][UK] The Witches of Karres (1966), by James H. Schmitz [US][UK]
All in all, an excellent haul of hard biting military/privateer science fiction. I just finished The Witches of Karres and am now working my way through Dorsai!, which is off to a very intriguing start. Apparently the book, which is a quick staccato read, is part of the Childe Cycle, so I might need to unearth the rest from somewhere... I am a regular over at the Strand bookstore, right off of Union Square, but their science fiction and fantasy collection is deplorable.
