Hardcover clean and unmarked, one tiny edge tear seen. Jacket has light scuffing, light edge crinkling. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 560 pages; "Donaldson returns, with the intent of saying farewell to his most successful creation, Thomas Covenant, in four volumes, of which this large, generally impressive novel is the first. It is 10 years since Thomas Covenant's death, and Linden Avery runs the small mental hospital in which Covenant's widow, Joan, is confined. Roger Covenant, newly turned 21, visits Avery and tries to get his mother released. Failing at that, he kidnaps Joan as well as Avery's adopted son, then commits several murders and flees to the Land, the other world of Covenant sagas. Roger is clearly doing Lord Foul's bidding, and Avery has no choice but to follow him. She discovers that in the Land three and a half millennia have passed. The Haruchai are now called the Masters and distrust Earthpower, and an old man, Anele, who is full of Earthpower, is key to finding the lost and essential Staff of Law. Thus is engendered a quest of formidable complexity, ranging across the Land to end at the seat of the Masters at Revelstone Keep, presently menaced by a host of Demondim, against which, however, the Staff of Law, wielded by battle-worn Avery, no longer offers the only hope. Filled with splendid inventions (occasionally described to the point of prolixity) , this book promises extremely well for the future of the end of the Covenant chronicles. " [855] .

DARK MATTER Reading the Bones, Speculative Fiction from the African Diaspora

By Thomas, Sheree R.

Aspect. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. 2004. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 0446528609 . VG+. Book is actually new but has light shelfwear to jacket involving scuffing of jacket & light edge wear. Small remainder mark across upper edge. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 416 pages; "In an excellent, idiosyncratic collection of sf, fantasy and folktale-derived fiction by African American (including Caribbean) writers, the quality of writing is uniformly high, and the contributors constitute practically a who's who of African American writers who have dealt in speculative fiction, beginning with W. E. B. DuBois, represented by a piece dating from 1920. Samuel Delany, Nalo Hopkinson, Tananarive Due, and Walter Mosley also appear, and the tone of most of the stories, even "Anansi Meets Peter Parker at the Taco Bell on Lexington," is serious and even desperate. One compensation for that tone is that Mosley seems much more at home in short sf and fantasy than he is at novel length, as in Blue Light (1998). But writing of this quality speaks eloquently for itself, and so do such surprises as Carol Cooper's panegyric to the consciousness-raising influence of Andre Norton, one of three essays at the end of the volume.

Cover has light scuffing, slight corner bumping . ; Dungeons & Dragons d20 3.0 Fantasy Roleplaying; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 176 pages; All the tools a rogue needs to fight back against the DM! Review: "A great source book...... This is a great source, it has 19 prestige classes with their respective organization that not only can be applied to the rogue class but also to the ranger and bard classes, their all well balanced, but most importantly you would want to play them all. It also has 13 legendary classes, this is a great concept, because it will give you more options for high level campaings, and because the tests you would have to take to achive them would give your DM more material for adventures (and this adventures will be very exiting). The art of the book is also great, some people won't like it because it's black & white, but I think it's perfect for a Book called Path of Shadow. If you are looking for a great source book with complete information (and that is better than the oficial one) this is it." [715] .
