New Arrivals x 1500

One of our favorite book scouts just returned from a public sale on Vancouver Island with over 1500 titles in tow, which will be hitting the shelves over the next few days. Lots of science fiction, fantasy, contemporary literature and pocketbook classics. Highlights so far: a trade paperback original (TPBO) of Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash ($29.95, as opposed to the $2500+ USD hardcover printing), an obscure Bulgakov study on Moliere, and a nice run of vintage Graham Greene Penguin paperbacks with the attractive orange spines.

(Illustrated: Snow Crash's super-pricy, super-rare hardcover first edition)
