A few weeks ago, I went to a used bookstore in DC’s Adams Morgan neighborhood, where I was delighted to find a great selection of vintage pulpy sci-fi/fantasy novels. After much deliberation, I settled on the following:
- Sword Woman by Robert E. Howard
- an Anne McCaffrey space opera that I haven’t read yet
- a book called Cormac MacArt: Sword of the Gael, which is apparently part of a series that I’ve never heard of
- the next three Gor books, which will likely be terrible
All six are going on my shelf for days that I’m looking for something mindless or lighthearted.
