Recent Acquisitions

Clockwise from top left: Lanark, Alasdair Gray; Pump Six and Other Stories, Paolo Bacigalupi; The Essential Ellison, Ellison, et al; Strange Things In Close Up, Howard Waldrop; Slouching Towards Bethlehem and Sentimental Journeys, Joan Didion.

Pump Six arrived in today's mail courtesy of its publisher, Night Shade Books. I want to get back into reviewing new/newish fiction and I'm looking forward to writing about Bagigalupi's debut collection.

Is the Essential Ellison, Ralph Ellison? I loved "The Invisible Man" one of the finest works out of America in the last century, but I thought due to all his activism Ellison only wrote two books.

Also Lanark is a wild crazy ride of a novel too

Ellison is a lovely essayist, even better than Invisible Man in some ways.

Glad you're back Tim.

Thanks, Laura.

Ellison in this case is Harlan, not Ralph. Of the latter I have only read some of his jazz criticism.
