More Book Shelves!

Here are Alex Morris's book shelves. It gave me feeling of nostalgia to see precisely the same collection of E. E. 'Doc' Smith books I once had before they were sacrificed during a library down-sizing. I've still got a similar number of those old Michael Moorcock books, however - the Champion Eternal ones, not that boring English Assassin stuff.

invalid. no Bester or Nagata. string (theory) them pulpems up at dawn.

just kidding.

no Heinlein either which is pretty brave, possibly groundbreaking or controversial.

those black monoliths in the middle, is that EE Smith stuff? cant see it for shit. your photo skills are great, my eyes are raisins with white enamel paint on the sides.

Not my photos. The Smiths are in the fourth picture down to the right of the Asimovs. No idea what the black monoliths are.

I am so going to do mine when the wifes finished decorating.

Just read a shed load on holiday after a brief visit to Forbidden Planet. Can I recommend Principles of Angels by Jaine Fenn, very good indeed.

Swainson said...

You can find more of Jaine's work here

Just don't read the back of any of the books. Big spoilers.

The Black Tombs are all Ballistic publishing special editions - mainly SF artwork. Heinlein is in there somewhere - a lot of the collection is still in boxes elsewhere, and there is another layer of paperbacks behind the ones on show - I couldn't get a clear view of some shelves because there was too much crap in the way;)
Incidentally I thought that the Janet Morris ones would get most comment (entertaining but not high literature...LOL)
