I got the books today! They have never been opened or read, and if one of the papercovers were not a bit creased at the edge, I would believe that they had not been touched by a human hand They are so fine!

Three other books by the same seller arrived too and in very good condition even with the author's signature, Charles Stross.

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."
