Just ordered Anderson's "Saga of Shadows" trilogy, the sequel to his "Seven Suns" series. (Which I will have to reread first of course. Very Happy )

(Also ordered Atwood's "Handmaids Tale" and "Robber Bride" for the GF, since she just finished rereading "Alias Grace" and wanted some more of her books.)

Finally got "Augers Gambit" and "Kings Justice" (by some guy whose initials are "SRD") as 2 individual hardbacks. Weird I know. Anyway, will be reading them soon. Very Happy

The Shattered Sea trilogy by Joe Abercrombie. If you haven't read his "First Law" series, do yourself a favour...

Picked up a book of short stories by Abercrombie, set in the same world as the First Law books, and some of which are prequels to that series, with some characters origin stories.

Also got Anathem by Neal Stephenson.

My copy of Red Country by Joe Abercrombie arrived yesterday. (The GF ordered a cookbook, but it wasn't enough to qualify for free delivery, so I ordered a book as well.)

Another story set in the world of the First Law, this was the only book of his that I was missing.

Looking forward to it, just have to finish "Night Watch" quickly.

Picked up a copy of Paul Hoffman's The Left Hand of God yesterday for 2 quid in a second hand bookshop. I'd been looking at it new at a full price of four times as much in another store - and so it seemed like a serendipitous steer that I could not ignore; I'll let you know how it pans out in due course!
