I must check tonight whether the ones I am missing are available on Kindle tonight. Somewhere in my library I think I have the odd one or two, but here at school I cant check which ones they are...

Sword & Mythos. I(ss an anthology of stories mixing the Cthulhu mythos withs Swords and Sorcery elements... a couple very good ones, but the quality is very irregular, and the choice is impaired by excessive PCness

Svarty, have you ever read any of the Fritz Leiber fantasy books starring Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser?

If you haven't, I reckon you would enjoy them - clever, and with a good touch of humour...

Of course, I do own all 7 Fafhrd and Gray Mouser collections... classics are classics.

Alienation: Marx's Conception of Man in Capitalist Society by Bertell Ollman - The appreciation he has of the interpretation of Marx in the light of the philosophy of internal relations is excellent. If you only read one book about Marxism this year I recommend this one.
