Islands of Novels

The new Christopher Priest novel, The Islanders, arrived this morning, courtesy of the lovely folks at Gollancz. I thought I’d put my money where my mouth was when I said I was a fan of his, and take a picture of the books I’ve acquired. I’ve not read all of these, but certainly most of them. It’s been a good few years since I’ve picked up a novel of his, however, since he’s someone who takes his time. There are a couple of rarities here, including The Book on the Edge of Forever, Priest’s analysis of what happened with Harlan Ellison’s famous The Last Dangerous Visions. There’s a good bibliography on wiki.

  1. I thought my Priest collection was pretty good, but yours definitely trumps it! Is that a proof of The Separation lurking up there?! I’m jealous of that copy of The Perfect Lover too…

    I do have a copy of “The Last Deadloss Visions” hiding around here somewhere (although, shamelessly, I picked it up as an Ellison fan).

  2. Yup, a very hard to acquire proof, too! There was some publishing hiccup at the time, which saw the book move from S&S to Gollancz. Which makes it more collectable!
