Default Three more treasures for the collection

Recently I found and bought myself three more wonderful books for my collection....all are in very lovely condition...and they will find a happy home with the rest of my collection.


This is a 1st edition of the 7th annual Years best of Sci-Fi...and has the Ship Who Sang inside..this book is almost an inch smaller than the normal paperbacks...and on the edges it is stained an odd dark aqua blue.



This is a lovely book cover...and inside is a story written by Anne and her daughter Gigi...with a very nice and interesting peek into their lives toghter.


Happy Hunting.....


This is another excelent book containing the Ship WHo Sang story...a girl can never have too many of these...

Cheryl, I was so surprised to find it.. (Phils book is coming in mighty handy)and when I recieved it in the mail...it was in beautiful condition all but new. Good luck in finding one for yourself. The book has a lovely photo of Anne and Gigi in it too, one that I had never seen before. I will see about scaning it and putting it up!!!

That's too funny Becky, since I'd forgotten a hardcover existed (I had known at one point or another, as the cover looks familiar). Happy hunting!

Hi, only got the paperback edition of the mothers & daughters book so interesting to see new ones or alternatively if there are both versions out. I know some authors produce books only ever in one format so at least we know what to look for. I got one of her short stories recently so I'm doing the happy book dance with you.
