    The books look great. Another author I have yet to read.

    Thanks, Brian. I actually have quite a few more 1/1 UK trade hardcovers of his other series, but they are very common. He's very popular in the U.K. These are the more uncommon editions.

    Donaldson tends to polarize people. He often has characters do unspeakable things and then tries to redeem them. He also has complex ideas about the nature of power and heroism which avoid the usual tropes, and require investment to understand. So a lot of people don't enjoy his work. I like it a lot - his writing style appeals to me, and he's a wonderful storyteller.

    Thanks, Frank. I know these volumes don't look like much, but some of them are actually quite hard to find in good condition. A lot of people don't realize that U.K. Hardcover editions of the First Chronicles even exist, because the Fontana paperbacks are so ubiquitous.

    I remember selling the Fontana paperbacks at my store and I have never seen the hardcovers before. It’s a great looking set.

    Thanks, Paul. The hardcovers are pretty neat. Of course, I also have a set of the Fontana paperbacks.

    Well, okay, maybe more than one set.

    Yes, se co-wrote the three myst novels, which are quite good. Chung Kuo is his Magnum Opus, though.

    Thanks, Yegor. Glad you liked seeing them.

    I haven’t read anything by this author but the titles demand interest. Curious to give him a try. The books are clean and classy looking, too.

    Wow. Man oh man that is one bad ass collection. Unfortunately I am unfamiliar with most of these authors and while I like Hell Raiser 1 and 2, I have only read Weaveworld, which I did like a lot. I have Imajica but just never read it.
    This is one serious collection Peter.

    Thanks, Adam. As I said above, he can be a bit polarizing. If you get halfway through the first in the series - Lord Foul's Bane - and are still willing to give the protagonist a chance, then you will probably like the whole series. But there's one scene in particular that makes that character - and Donaldson - irredeemable in many readers' eyes.

    Thanks, Mike. In my formative years I read SF and epic fantasy, mostly, so much of my non-King collection is in those genres. My foray into S/Ls and Lettered editions is relatively recent, so the stuff I have from before then is more focused on unusual or rare trade editions of the authors I like. Also, mostly UK editions, as I grew up in Australia.

    More to come soon. I have some acquisitions arriving soon, and some more stuff in the bookcase to share.

    Random Lettered Editions, Part 1: The Silo Trilogy, by Hugh Howey:





    This is a PC copy of the SubPress lettered edition. The three volumes are housed in a single traycase, and each one is bound in leather with foil stamping. The endpapers are this beautifully textured and richly colored thick paper. A nice set.

    This was another lucky pickup from the SubPress PC sale earlier this year.

    Impressive. One of these days I'll read a book by him.
