Scored at the Bookstore

I got quite a good haul tonight from the UBS (used book store). This is the first time I've purchased one book from each of four different sections of the store. Tonight's treasure includes:

"Touch of Evil" by C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp, Tor 2006 - A paranormal romance by authors I've enjoyed in the past. In fact, these two are the only Tor romance authors I've found who write consistently good books.

"Harvest" by Tess Gerritson, Pocket Books, 1996 - I love Tess Gerritson's books, and I think this is one of only two or three books of hers that I'm missing.

"Endurance" by S.L. Viehl (also known as Paperback Writer), Roc, 2001 - I've looked for this one several times at the local B&N because Ms. Viehl on my "Autobuy-New" list. However, they've been out, and I haven't to buy it on-line because I don't want to charge anything to my credit card because of the mercenary sharks that I have to deal with there (a rant for another day).

and finally

"Gathering the Bones", an anthology of short horror stories, edited by Dennis Etchison, Ramsey Campbell and Jack Dann, Tor, 2003 - a remaindered book that showed up new and less than half price at the UBS. I'm not sure why this sounded good, except that I've been reading some horror stories on-line, and I'm craving some professional writing. I prefer intellectual/psychological horror to the blood-'n-guts, but I'll just have to read to find out I suppose.

Now I just have to find the time to read them all...

Sounds like some great books. I also enjoy paranomal stuff. We use to have a ghost child and her name was Emily.

Hope things are going well for you. Trying to find time to write and read blogs. Just wrote about that today in my blog.

Take care,

I've finished the three novels finally! I'm still working on the short stories, but I'll get there eventually.

If you like paranormal suspense/romance and don't mind a little blood, I recommend Holly Lisle's books: "Midnight Rain", "Last Girl Dancing", and "I See You".
