Long overdue update on book hauls

It’s been a while, but now I’m catching up on a lot of overdue personal tasks.  One of them happens to be an update to this site.

These 2 were purchased separately – the Ross was really a fantastic find in a book sale bin. 

At another binge, I picked these up:

 

 

Yet another session:

 

At long, long last, Under Heaven has arrived!

My autographed copy of Guy Gavriel Kay’s Under Heaven has finally arrived yesterday, after many many months.  I’ve been planning this since mid Feb 2010, so to finally get this is great!  A friend (hey Tim!) has kindly offered to meet Kay personally during Kay’s book tour stop at Frye Festival in Moncton, New Brunswick on Apr 20, 2010.

Let me just say, when your favourite author signs something made out in your name, it’s a pretty darn good feeling.

Kay apparently doesn’t take instructions very well.  I wanted him to write “To Donny, don’t worry, I’ll go to Malaysia… eventually!” but according to Tim he listened, bobbed his head, and wrote “To Donny, All Best Wishes, Guy Kay”.  Even though Tim wrote my requested inscription out on a piece of card.  Unacceptable, really.  It simply means I’ll have to get his next book autographed again.

 

I have really high hopes for this one, because World Fantasy Award-winning Ysabel did not tweak my buttons too much.
