Atlantis - dark sky outline

Friday, such as it is

This is going around on Facebook, so I thought I'd do it here. Here are the top ten books that greatly have influenced me (not in any particular order):

1: Zelde M'tana by F.M. Busby
2: Dune by Frank Herbert
3: Malevil by Robert Merle
4: Wraiths of Time by Andre Norton (A lot of Andre Norton, particularly Star Gate, The Stars are Ours, Star Man's Son)
5: Polymath by John Brunner
6: A Judgement of Dragons by Phyllis Gotlieb
7: The Birthgrave by Tanith Lee
8: The Children of Green Knowe by L.M. Boston
9: Leviathan's Deep by Jayge Carr
10: The Door into Shadow by Diane Duane

A Tarr collection? Of horse stories? Welp, I'm just going to go give BVC a little more of my money, then.

I wonder if there are any new publications in it, or if they're all reprints? Pity the website does not provide a contents listing.

Thank you, Martha!

I've passed on this comment to the BVC bookstore crew. Will be fixed, and thanks for pointing it out. I've been finishing a book and not paying close enough attention.

In the meantime, here's the ToC. Title story is new. The rest are reprints.
