New Acquisitions: Pulpy trash edition!

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:

pulpy SF/F

  • 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.

Comments make me happy! Please feel free to leave a reply.


    1. I’m at the point where I’m not sure why I’m still reading the series, because it’s gotten terribad, but I enjoyed the first two or three books. I’m excited to try the Robert E. Howard, because he seems like he’ll be right up my alley. 🙂
