New Appendix N Discoveries
I've finally returned home from vacation, along with 24 used books for my Appendix N collection. Although I visited nearly every used bookstore in the lower mainland, I discovered almost all of the purchased titles at The Book Man in Chilliwack, B.C. Never fear; there were still plenty of Appendix N books remaining on the shelves as I departed.
What a great store. I had the good fortune to meet the co-owner, David (above), at their Abbotsford location, who was super-helpful in finding several titles for me.
Here is the collection of books I purchased.
Among the titles: She (H. Rider Haggard); The Palace of Love and The Book of Dreams (Jack Vance); Figures of Earth, Cream of the Jest, and Domnei (James Branch Cabell); Tros of Samothrace (Talbot Mundy); Flashing Swords #4, Thongor and the End of Time, and Journey to the Underground World (Lin Carter); The Stealer of Souls and The Vanishing Tower (Michael Moorcock); Mayenne and Kalin (E. C. Tubb); The Dark World (Henry Kuttner); Black Vulmea's Vengeance, Conan the Freebooter, and Son of the White Wolf (Robert E. Howard); Red Sonya 1 (David C. Smith); Hero of Dreams (Brian Lumley); Lost Worlds 1 (Clark Ashton Smith); The Best of Fredric Brown; The Phoenix and the Mirror (Avram Davidson); and Kothar and the Wizard Slayer (Gardner F. Fox).
