Charles deLintSvaha"De Lint is as engaging a stylist as Stephen King, but considerably more inventive and ambitious." --The Globe and Mail (Toronto) "Opening de Lint's work is like stepping through a mirror." --Los Angeles Daily News "De Lint is a romantic; he believes in the great things, faith, hope, and charity (especially if love is included in that last), but he also believes in the power of magic--or at least the magic of fiction--to open our eyes to the world." --Edmonton JournalPaperback
Charles deLintThe Little CountryMorrow. Feb. 1991. c.544p. ISBN 0-688-10366-9. $22.95. fantasy When musician Janey Little discovers a hidden book in her grandfather's Cornwall home, the magic within its pages unleashes a chain of events that stretches across the sea to America, where a self-styled magician senses and covets its power, and to Madrid, where a sailor responds to a deeper, more lasting call. The author of Moonheart (Ace, 1984) and other fantasy novels asserts his unique ability to weave together a seamless pattern of magic and realism as this story within a story unfolds with elusive grace. Highly recommended. Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.Paperback
Lester DelReyOutpost of JupiterPaperback
Lester DelReyThe Best of Lester Del ReyTerry Brooks recalls Lester del Rey as being "not physically imposing, barely over 5 feet, rather hollow-cheeked and frail-looking." But "when Lester looked at you, he peered through his thick glasses in the same way a botanist might study an interesting specimen." A legendary editor whose exploits included scooping up untried unknowns like Stephen R. Donaldson, David Eddings, and Brooks himself (not to mention the coup of snagging the rights to Star Wars), the eccentric del Rey is one of SF's elite old guard, widely respected for years as a publisher and critic. But, as Brooks points out in this book's introduction, del Rey also slugged it out in the trenches, writing for John W. Campbell and others in the glory days of Unknown, Astounding Science Fiction, et al. ("In those days of long ago, any sale to John W. Campbell was something of a triumph," del Rey recalls.) This collection pulls together del Rey's best short works from the '30s, '40s, and '50s, including many of his personal favorites and more than a couple that sprouted from ideas passed on by Campbell himself. Some of the 16 stories here show their age in places, but all reflect del Rey's inventive, often opinionated, top-shelf mind. Whether it's a classic tale of boy-builds-robot, boy-falls-in-love-with-robot, or a Rip Van Winkle-style riff on an elven tinker who's frustrated by modern alloys, del Rey always stuck to the big ideas that brought him--and us--to sci-fi in the first place. --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.Paperback

Susan DexterThe Ring of Allaire (Winter King's War #1)Winter King's WarMaster magician Blais was dead, murdered by the evil ice-lord Nimir. Now there was only Tristan, an ill-trained apprentice, to carry on the quest to rescue Allaire, a princess held in enchanted sleep in Nimir's frozen halls. Though a thousand master mages had already failed in the quest, Tristan must succeed -- or all of Calandra would be doomed by Nimir's greed. First Tristan would have to find the wonder-horse Valadan, who had vanished long ago. Then he had to secure the aid of the one knight among many who was a true Heir to the Throne. Together, they must overcome the Guardian dragon of Nimir's realm. After that -- well, there was still the tenth ring to be found, since Allaire was powerless without it. Nothing, of course, was ever that simple. There were complications . . .Paperback

Philip K. DickThe Early Work of Philip K. Dick Volume 1: The Variable Man and Other StoriesThe Early Work of Philip K. DickThis volume collects 15 of the earliest short publications by Philip K. Dick (1928–1982), all from 1952–1953. Though the young author is clearly finding his footing in these stories, many of the elements he developed in later works are present in embryonic form. The nature of reality is held up to question in Adjustment Team, while self-repairing and replicating robots populate James P. Crow, The Gun and Jon's World. The weak must prevail against seemingly invincible opponents in Beyond Lies the Wub, Piper in the Woods and Souvenir, and the prospect of total destruction looms in The Variable Man. Rickman provides an informative introduction and detailed endnotes on each story, which alone would make this volume worth acquiring. This collection is a must-have for PKD fans. (Nov.)

Philip K. DickThe Crack in SpacePaperback
Philip K. DickThe Early Work of Philip K. Dick, Volume 2: Breakfast at Twilight and Other StoriesThe Early Work of Philip K. DickMore than 25 years after his death, Dick's legacy is very much alive and thriving, thanks to continuing interest from Hollywood in his more marketable ideas and a steady stream of reissued novels and collections. The latest pair of Dick anthologies, gathering his earliest short fiction, cover the prolific years 1952/54, when Dick s first taste of publication fed his appetite for writing full time. Although Dick later dismissed his early work as bad science fiction, there are many gems here, including stories touching on themes he would explore more meticulously in his classic novels. His first published tale, Beyond Lies the Wub, for example, demystifies space explorers during their encounter with edible aliens that invade their hosts when consumed. The first volume's title story features a recurring Dick protagonist, a mechanic who outwits a dystopian ruling class; the second showcases Dick's fascination with time-and-space anomalies. Together, the books constitute an indispensable treasure for Dick fans and anyone curious about the formative years of a true twentieth-century literary genius. --BooklistHardcover
Philip K. DickDr. Bloodmoney or How We Got Along after the BombReview by Bill Johnston (PSSFS): Doctor Bloodmoney is a post nuclear war novel which is somewhat comparable to Lucifer's Hammer by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, but there are far fewer characters in Doctor Bloodmoney, and they are better characterized, but the science is weaker. In the seven years from the war to the main body of the novel, rats, dogs, and other animals have become significantly more intelligent, and some strange mutant abilities have appeared in humans. The animals are only a sideline to the story, but the impression given about people is the anyone deformed will also have some beneficial mutation. I have to stress that the characters are very well developed and are the main point of the novel: their reactions to each other and the world are the reason the novel was written. I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes to think about what they're reading. Paperback

Gordon R. Dickson, Harry HarrisonThe LifeshipCastaways between the stars... Trapped in the confines of their fragile lifeship, a tiny band of aliens and humans faces the awesome challenge of survival after the mysterious explosion of a giant spaceship. Giles Steel, a member of Earth's master race, assumes responsibility for erupting tempers, the dwindling food supply...and the saboteur whose ugly work has already begun!Paperback
Gordon R. DicksonThe Chantry GuildDickson's vast Childe Cycle ( Soldier , Ask Not , The Final Encyclopedia ) is taken one further step with this story of a conceptual breakthrough by the Dorsai mercenary and philosopher Hal Mayne. The action is slim here as a frustrated Mayne, stymied in his efforts to conceive a strategy to save Old Earth from its overwhelming foe, the Others, visits the secretive, quasi-religious Chantry Guild on the planet Kultis. While absorbing their teaching, he helps the Guild evade local soldiers and has an unexpected meeting with his nemesis, Bleys Ahrens. Although the protagonist's quest and Dickson's conviction are generally engrossing, the novel suffers from many of the pitfalls of Dickson's other solemn, parable-like tales. In its weaker moments, the prose teeters toward psychobabble as bland superman Mayne pushes a reluctant human race toward a level where they "would have more, be more, and choose more wisely."
