If Connie Willis does not receive, or is at least nominated for, a Hugo for "All Clear" I will consider it to be a shocking miscarriage of justice, a failure of taste, and a general condemnation of my fellow science fiction fans everywhere.

I'm going to be in Amherst with a ginormous box of books tomorrow to get rid of - they're mostly paperback science fiction and fantasy, so if you want some of them give me a shout and let me know where to meet you. If you'd like them, you can have them for the excellent price of free. Otherwise, they're going to the nearest used bookstore or Listen :)

List of books )

If you'd like more details on any of these (like, I dunno, authors or something) it's all at my LibraryThing account. There's absolutely no warranty implied here, but they're all good reading copies and hey, you get what you pay for, amirite? :)

So, here's the way it is. When I moved in here I had 35 boxes of books just for me. Since then I've gained a total of over 300 books, and it's really getting out of hand. I don't have room for them all and I've got tons I'll never read again, that are duplicates, or that just are no longer necessary (or, in the interests of full disclosure, that I hated.) So I've decided to sell some of them off before school starts and I don't have time to deal with the mail. I've got technical books (especially Oracle and SQL, but also some other programming languages and crypto), classics of all genres and eras, and a metric buttload of science fiction, fantasy, mystery and general fiction, among others. This includes complete or near-complete collections of some series of Thomas Harlan, Glen Cook, and Piers Anthony, as well as a few more complete series and a hell of a lot of Laura K. Hamilton. I'm not going to cut and paste, since the list is quite long.

Steps

1. Go to my Librarything for sale tag and check out what's there.
2. See if there's anything you want, and if so comment here. I'll verify that I have it and check shipping prices for you.
3. All books except technical books are $2 each or 6/$10. Technical books are priced at $5 (beat-up or old) and $10 (still relevant).
4. I ship books, you paypal money! Easy!

* Note that these will all be OK reading copies, but some are definitely in better shape than others. Some of them do have my name or the names of others in them, as a lot of them were used when I bought them. If something isn't in reading condition I won't send it to you! If you want to know the condition of a given book up front, ask and I'll find it and check. I view "reading condition" to be cover intact, no significant water damage, and no pages falling out, though if there are problems other than that I might also yank them out. A lot of these have been living in boxes for a while.
* These are a mixture of hardcover and paperback.
* If you live in the UK I might be able to arrange something for cheaper shipping. Give me a shout and we'll see.
* After a month these are going up on Amazon. A month after that they're going to the thrift store :)
