Crazy awesome haul

Postby gurensan » 07 Jul 2012 17:46

I went to a local Half-Price Books that I'd never been to before today. I've been looking for all the non-Dune Herbert books, and here's today's haul:

The Lazarus Effect
The Green Brain
The Godmakers
Whipping Star
Destination: Void
The Book of Frank Herbert (10 short stories!)
The Heaven Makers
The Eyes of Heisenberg
Direct Descent
To Dosadi Experiment
Soul Catcher
The Worlds of Frank Herbert
The Santaroga Barrier
Hellstrom's Hive

.. for $20.44.

I <3 Half-Price Books. Some of these I've never seen new or used, so there was no way I could pass them up.

And what the had that I did NOT buy (because I already have them on paperback and I'm not certain what's left in the checking account) were 1st edition GEoD hardcover, 1st edition HoD hardcover, and 1st edition The White Plague hardcover, all with original dustjackets. Maybe I'll pick those up after my next check.

Pretty good take, I'd say!

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

I goto 3 Stores in close area, one about 40 miles away. Check on monthly bases, they are great.
Congrats on the haul, good stuff.

Are you the freaking reason why there are always gigantic freaking gaps on the Lynnwood Half Price Books bookshelf right (edit) next to the McDune books!? My heart breaks everytime I see that because I am left to wonder what I missed. :)

Kevin J. Anderson is so stupid he thinks he invented The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen since he wrote the movie tie-in.
