recent arrivals

From the bottom up:

* China Mieville, Embassytown - Came in yesterday. I did other things last night and only got halfway through it.

* Philip Jose Farmer, Hadon of Ancient Opar / Flight to Opar - I am obliged to rdansky for finding these two at WHC recently, as they are now part of my slow and leisurely-growing collection wherein I attempt to gather a complete run of the yellow-spined and numbered DAW SF paperbacks - I think they stopped doing the yellow spine around #1500 or so, with occasional earlier ones (the MAR Barker Tekumel / Empire of the Petal Throne novels come to mind as examples) of wraparound covers. This is one of my two collection targets: the other, roughly an order of magnitude fewer titles, is probably going to be harder than amassing a complete DAW run. But while I have a fair number of Farmer titles, I didn't have these two, although I have read them.

(plus one picked up this evening at Readers Corner)
* David Drake, Northworld Trilogy - Have the first two in individual paperback, this lets me finish out this storyline.

Only halfway through Embassytown, but you can tell us how it was so far!

I finished it that evening (Wednesday) - I got halfway through thinking I wasn't going to like it terribly much, then by the time I reached the end I changed my mind. Whoa. For a more insightful review, see http://rozk.livejournal.com/415601.html

Thanks for the tip. Library just handed me theirs, so it's on... one of the to-read stacks.
