I was at our local rec center tonight for a meeting (I'm the rec commission chairperson). We have a lending library which depends on the kindness of local citizens to provide books. You can trade one for one, or buy books for a quarter a piece. I occassionally check out the books, mostly out of boredom, but tonight (during a lull in the meeting), I noticed three new boxes of books, so I decided to check them out.
Here's what I scored for a quarter a piece....
- a SPACE: 1999 novella from 1975
- a Doc Savage novella
- a book on Irish myths and fables
- a copy of Joseph Conrad's THE POWER OF MYTH
- an illustrated book on the Tower of London (complete with MAPS!)
- an illustrated history of Scottish clans, complete with tartans and clan costumes
- a copy of FROM TOLKIEN TO OZ: THE ART OF GREG HILDEBRANDT. Hildebrandt is no stranger to anyone who read DRAGON magazine in the 80s, but did you also know he was the cover artist for the Black Sabbath album MOB RULES? He also did one of the iconic STAR WARS movie posters....
