Represent seasonal court.
Fun fact: I bought two of these books just based on the cover art. Shadows Fall is one of the more eye-catching covers I've ever seen.
I do own all of these, but GIS is easier 😂

I got the blues! Today’s post is a lot of blue! Apparently it’s the color to choose when making book cover art. Most of my books are blue so I just grabbed my favorites and those that I still need to read. On top of the photo being extremely blue it also coincides with the winter court from ACOTAR. I loved the idea of polar bears fighting in battle. But it is the number one Court I will not want to go to. Not a fan of the winter, I like my spring and summer.
What is your least favorite season?

Scored these today for $1 a piece! Only missing like two #Xanth books now. I’ve been a #PiersAnthony fan for as long as I’ve been able to read. My other copies were lost to a bonfire from an angry ex and I’m still trying to rebuild almost a decade later. #IncarnationsOfImmortality - never had a chance to read this series, but it’s Piers Anthony - has to be good!

I accepted a fun challenge to post the cover of 7 books I love: no explanation, no review. #Day5 #ScienceFiction #scififantasy #piersanthony #problematic #Hasitsflaws #IncarnationsofImmortality #7of7 #AndEternity #Powells #Powellsbookstore #BookNerd

Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, August 1968. Cover art by Gahan Wilson.

The best editors leave no trace of their work. Anthony Boucher, the founding editor of this journal, helped shape the careers and writing of dozens of your favorite sci-fi authors, but you've probably never heard of him. He died in April 1968, and this issue features a series of remembrances from some of those writers, including Philip K. Dick, Isaac Asimov, Poul Anderson, and Robert Bloch. Avram Davidson, the master of brevity, said it best: "In the mellow and genial sun of his personality bloomed many a plant. It is darker than it used to be." He was a towering figure in the mystery world too, and I bet similar reminiscences appeared in those journals. I personally thank him for trumpeting the books of mystery writer Ross Macdonald, the best mystery writer and one of the best novelists I have ever read.

I'm feeling pretty long-winded here! This issue also features two reviews of Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" by Samuel Delany and Ed Emshwiller. Holy cow! Delaney laments that Kubrick cut 19 minutes from the theatrical roadshow version and makes some of those Delany-esque observations that confirm that he's working on a different plane than the rest of us.

Judith Merril's books column features a lengthy tribute to Boucher, along with reviews of Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and books by Brian Aldiss and John Brunner. There's also a Dean Koontz story and the second part of a Piers Anthony serialized novel. They seem like afterthoughts, which is weird.

The Incarnation of Fate

It appears the year 1991 marks a significant low point as far as book titles go. I mean wtf was #piersanthony thinking? // Found in the free-to-take trolley at the tip shop yesterday. // Plus, I guess I’ll never know the colour of her panties (I shudder, just typing that word), because the damn library barcode is obscuring the cover (and this book would be so far down my list, I’m pretty unlikely to read it)! // #badbooktitles #fantasyfiction #abitpervy #whatwashethinking #jrrtolkienwouldberollinginhisgrave

📖 He awoke in a tiny lightless cell, groping for memory…memory that had been erased. Hope Hubris, Jupiter governor, progressive populist, warrior hero, and presidential candidate…a “mem-washed” tool of the enemy. And if his captors’ plan worked, Hope would destroy his own political career, leaving the fate of his planet in the hands of its corrupt presidential incumbent—Tocsin.
.
But Hope Hubris had a destiny to fulfill. He had the cunning to discover code words that could reactivate his mind…the strength to resist addiction to their drugs…the power to win the support of his countrymen, and finally the courage to make an agonizing sacrifice that would ensure his planet's future and his own destiny…

Bout an hour and a half later... moving on to the next/last book in the series. Probably starting Discworld after this #fiction #bookworm #fantasy #piersanthony

Had a reshuffle in my house due to a sofa purchase, so I reorganised my Doctor Who shelf. It is now my geek shelf.
The top two (three if you count the top) shelves are taken up by Doctor Who dvds, books, pops and figures.
The circular plaque on the right says 'Tempis Fugit' (Time Flies) in Gallifreyan circular.
Under those are all the current Song of Ice and Fire books, plus the GoT Blu-rays. And Supernatural, Doctor Horribles Sing-a-long Blog, and Sherlock.
Then I have a wide array of books; Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Piers Anthony's Incarnations of Immortality, Battle Royale, so on and so forth.
Now I just got to find a way to stop a 2 year old from pulling them all off the shelves!
