Here are six more of the Gollancz SF Masterworks books (almost all ordered used, I should note) that have arrived in the past few days, with a few more due to arrive within the next two weeks. Between these editions and other, American editions of the stories in the list, I now have something like 50 or so of these books (as well as all 50 of the Fantasy Masterworks series). Expect reviews of these either here or on the SFF Masterworks blog.
I'm slowly adding to my Moorcock collection (I think he's about to surpass Borges for the number of individual volumes that I own - I believe it's 34 Borges-penned books, with one more on its way) and I hope to have most of the Eternal Champion multiverse books in time for Moorcock Month later this year.
The Gardini book, Triptico de Trinidad, is the first review copy that I've received from a Spanish publisher and a review of it will hopefully be up sometime in the next couple of weeks. The premise behind this story is intriguing. I should note that the review will be in English, lest any start to worry.
And finally, yesterday I received a copy of Norman Thomas di Giovanni's book on Borges, The Lesson of the Master. I am almost done with it and it will make for an excellent coda to the Borges Month discussions.
