Also got Nemo:Heart of Ice, which is a new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen adventure by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill. Moore's work has been sort of uneven the last few years, but when the man's on he's on so I figured I'd give this a try. We'll see how it goes.
And even though I'd already read max Allan Collins' Seduction of the Innocent on my Kindle, I bought the trade paperback because the cover is nifty and I wanted the Terry Beatty illustrations on paper. The book so nice I bought it twice.
The mail brought two packages. One contained the paperback edition of I Am Providence, the gigantic two-volume biography of H.P. Lovecraft by S.T. Joshi. I passed on this when it came out in hardback figuring to pick it up later, but it has since become collectible and very expensive, so I was glad to get the paperbacks. Looking forward to delving into this one.
The other package held a hardback adaptation of the 1957 movie Tarzan and the Lost Safari. No idea who actually wrote it, but I'd been meaning to pick up a copy for some time. The book wasn't in quite as good condition as the Ebay seller claimed, but it's fine as a reading copy and it was cheap.
So yeah, lot of cool stuff yesterday.
