An unusual book haul today but I fancied teaching myself chemistry and was recommended this by a science teacher

I've got a few of those orange/yellow/black books (inherited from my grandfather). They are fairly nifty if you want the basics to a particular subject.

When I was in school my favourite subject was biology, but I was also interested in chemistry and physics. And I was probably the only school kid who was interested in Geography!
Sadly school life wasn't good for me. It was not a good environment for learning and I failed everything

Went to a library book sale and got a bunch of stuff cheap, including several SF anthologies.

Later, went (by accident, really, on a trip to see waterfalls on a road that turned out to be closed) to a nifty music/books/art/etc. store in Andrews, North Carolina. Among other, I got books four and five in Orson Scott Card's Homecoming series. (Those of you with photographic memories for minutia will recall that I read the first three books in the series in one volume a while back. Oddly serendipitous that this store had only the two concluding books.)

Mine is on it's way. Our man Banks was quite the artist.

I may be confused, but can we expect a second volume containing notes, or is this it.

My copy of The Iain M. Banks Culture drawings arrived today. I'll look forward to puring through this at some point.

A lovely addition to my small Culture books collection.

A wet, but photogenic, bit of Scotland.
These arrived from eBay today:

Not the only books I have bought recently: other winnings include the 1953 Film Fun Annual, John Carter's* ABC for Book Collectors, and the Fantasy Masterworks edition of Time and the Gods by Lord Dunsany and various bandes dessinées like the first volume of Fred's wonderfully weird Philémon series: Philémon et le Naufragé du "A" in which our hero falls down a well and finds himself trapped on the letter A in the Atlantic.

*Not that one.

My signed copy of Garth Merenghi's Incarcerat arrived. I very much enjoyed Garth Merenghi's Dark Place and this looks like it'll be a lot of fun.

I also picked up a copy of Crimson Climb by E.K. Johnston

I pre-ordered this when Solo came out, so they've kind of missed their audience after five years. :)

Just recently became aware these had been put out in paperback editions, 2020 and 2018 respectively. These were the the definitive collections until Night Shade put out five volumes of his short work in the early '00s. They were too expensive for me then, and way more so now, at least according to Amazon pricing, so these were a no brainer.
