Eastercon additions to the library

One of the delights of a big con like Eastercon is the dealers' room. This year's con Seacon had an excellent selection of dealers and books. Along with the wonder that is the BSFA tombola (5 tickets for £1, and an excellent chance of winning)...

So what were this year's selections from the new and the old on the many stands?

% won on the BSFA tombola

Twenty nine books in total (of which nine were hardcovers, ten were trades, and two oversize). Good job I'd taken the car...

(Oh, and if the numbers don't seem to tally, that's because one of the books was a compilation of two PS Publishing novellas, and I have entered them on the main list seperately...)

Ahh! I'm in pain!
You got a copy of Felaheen! It hurts, it hurts! (I forgot to ask Nojay or Andrew to bring one back for me!)

Adam Roberts - On

Have you read anything else by him? I don't recall seeing a review appear at any time. On really isn't the one I'd recommend, though.

one of the books was a compilation of two PS Publishing novellas

I did wonder briefly why they weren't marked as small press, and then read this. All is clear.

Re:
To be honest, I really disliked Salt. So this is a "benefit of the doubt book"...

Ah. Well, best of luck with that, then...
