I like receiving books

I love it when I get to work and there’s a nice book-shaped box waiting for me. On this occasion Starman’s Quest was therein. The book sounds like it might be very similar to Heinlein’s slightly earlier novel Time for the Stars where one of a pair of twins travels around at relativistic velocities out in space while the other remains on earth, resulting in asynchronous aging.  It’s a beautiful clean copy too.

Another Great Book Score

Robots Have No Tails… by Lewis Padgett.  Not in the best condition, the jacket has a couple of nicks and a small notch out of the top of the front cover, but otherwise looks great, from the pictures I saw anyway…  More fantastic cover art from Ric Binkley too.  A very sought after title. 

Got another book in my sights in the next day or so.  Starman’s Quest by Robert Silverberg.  It looks a solid Fine online – hopefully I can pick it up at a reasonable price.

Man, I’ve been about a month on Journey to Infinity now.  Must get moving, I’m accumulating a large backlog.
