Another Book and Other Stuff…

Just picked up Seetee Ship by Will Stewart on eBay for an excellent price.  We’ll see the reality when it arrives.  I’ve had a couple of disappointments lately, so I’m trying not to get too excited.  I am also expecting Lost Continents to turn up in the next week, and there’s a copy of Tros of Samothrace coming up on eBay.  I’ve never seen it available in auction before so I’m aiming for that as well.

At the moment I’m out in the countryside just north of Seoul doing English language immersion camps.  Actually, this is third consecutive camp since I started here on December 14th.  The first two were two weeks each and this one is for three weeks, so I’m not done until February 4th.  The place we’re at is called The Transnational Law and Business University and they run these camps for elementary and middle school kids during winter and summer vacations.  It’s located within the bounds of Goyang City, but it’s up the side of a hill in the countryside.


This is looking more or less west today from my classroom on the 5th floor.  It’s kind of remote (by Korean standards) – I have to walk about 20 minutes to get to a convenience store.  It’s also very cold at the moment.

Back to GP.  I’m closing in on the 75% mark – only two more titles to pick up.  I’m into the realms of books that for the most part can’t be just picked up on a whim off eBay or a vendor somewhere online.  Many of the remaining titles are truly sought after and have to be saved and planned for, such as the Foundation series, I, Robot, City, Methuselah’s Children, the Conan titles… I’ll need to be more methodical and considered in my pursuit of the remaining books.
