Well, there are five used bookstores that I know of, but there used to be well over a dozen... I've read everything by Ray Bradbury, except some of his poetry. I have all but, I think, two of his books, including the british version of "S is for Space"- called "The Silver Locusts"- and one called "The Day it Rained Forever". Now in the day of Alibris and eBay anyone can find these, but I got mine in London. I like going back and re-reading them, seeing how my reaction to the stories is different than back when I was in high school. For instance, I used to think that a lot of the women in his stories were shrewish harpys (like the wife in "the Happiness Machine" who points out that his machine is awful), now I see them as long-suffering and practical- maybe they want to build spaceships in the backyard, too, but someone has to make sure the kids are taken care of and the bills are paid... I suspect these wmoen are a metaphor for his own wife, who had to raise the children and pay the bills while he wrote fantasy stories. the Piers Anthony books I really liked were the ones with the centaurs and other mythical creatures- I can't remember the titles it's been so long. Have you read any Anne MacCaffry's (sp?) "Dragonsinger" books? I think you'd really like them. Andre Norton is a great writer, one of the best- very smart. I like Larry Niven's "Ringworld" books. Robert Asprin and Lynn Abbey edited the "Thieves World" books together (short stories by assorted authors set in the same city with the same characters- great books, you should check them out!) and it turns out that all the while they were having an affair. He screwed his wife over in the divorce and dumped his kids. Oh, yeah, he's a porn addict too. Steampunk is a fantasy genre that's set in Victorian times with science that never happened (H G Wells was the first Steampunk author), and Urban Fantasy is set in modern time with regular people, but with a twist- Charles De Lint as another good example, and there's a terrific book called "Neverworld"- I can't remember who wrote it. Another good example is the "Borribles" series where children who are mistreated and run away become Borribles- pointy-eared small people who never grow up and fight giant rats (Not really rats, they fight with swords and wear clothes) in the London underground. Sorry about Whinny not being a good mother, she's a good candidate for fostering the eggs out. Wind is getting frustrated with Sky, luckily she takes it out on the nest box.
