I've seen this thread in other forums (or do we still use fora in English? I know what it would be in Latin, but I can never keep straight which ones the dictionary-makers have given up on, and which they still try and keep around) and thought it was a good idea. On my shelf I currently have the following SF books by the same author and would love to see them go in groups to save on shipping. I'll keep my post updated, so everyone else that lists stuff here, please keep yours updated as well!

I think maintaining the lists might be a bit prohibitive (the thread will get longer and longer, and more and more prohibitive to people joining the discussion), It might be better to just start a new thread of this periodically (monthly?) and let people re-post their lists if desired. Anyway here's a few I'm offering at the moment:

Diane Duane:

  • The Book of Night with Moon
  • To Visit the Queen
  • These two books are brand new, unread, and in absolutely pristine condition. I'm switching to ebooks; I bought these just before making that decision, and I don't want to keep the paperbacks.

John Christopher:

  • The City of Gold and Lead (The Tripods, Book 2)
  • The Pool of Fire (The Tripods, Book 3)
  • I don't know where my copy of book 1 is, but it didn't match these two anyway. They're contemporary editions, the other was older.

Ben Bova:

  • Colony
  • Cyberbooks
  • The Exiles Trilogy (in a single volume)
  • Orion
  • Privateers
  • Voyagers

Isaac Asimov:

  • The Naked Sun (Foundation series #7, Robots series #7)
  • The Robots of Dawn (Foundation series #8, Robots series #8) - contemporary paperback in like-new condition.
  • The Robots of Dawn - hardcover first edition with dust jacket. My name is printed in the front flyleaf, and my initials inside the back cover. (Sorry, I was a kid and I had a family member who took books that weren't marked.) The book is otherwise in excellent condition. The dust jacket is in fair condition with some wear around the edges and a few small tears fixed with clear tape. This is a well loved book, I'm just letting it go because I'm switching to eBooks.
  • The Stars, Like Dust (Foundation series #17, Trantorian Empire series #1)
  • The Currents of Space (Foundation series #18, Trantorian Empire series #2)
  • Pebble in the Sky (Foundation series #19, Trantorian Empire series #3) - These three Trantorian Empire books go together well, they're from the same edition.
  • Nemesis

Alan Dean Foster

  • Phylogenesis (Founding of the Commonwealth #1) (Hardcover, excellent condition, no dust jacket)
  • Dirge (Founding of the Commonwealth #2) (Hardcover, in like-new condition with dust jacket)
  • The False Mirror (The Damned #2)
  • For Love of Mother-Not (PBS has this listed as Flinx #5, but the author says it's #1)
  • Orphan Star (PBS lists as Flinx #4, I have it as #3)
  • Reunion (Flinx #8 - PBS and I agree for once) (I believe this is the hardcover in like-new condition, with dust jacket)
  • The Howling Stones (a novel of the Commonwealth) (Paperback in as-new condition - I accidentally bought it twice, this one is unread)
  • The I Inside

Philip K. Dick - these three are all on Wish List Hold and may not be available, check my list in 48 hours if you want them:

  • The Divine Invasion
  • Ubik
  • The Transmigration of Timothy Archer

If it gets long we certainly can start a new thread monthly; that's what they do in the Book Bazaar forum. But still, within that month everyone should keep their post updated.
