Gun-totin', Chronic-smokin' Hearse Initiator


What I got when I cashed out the two Powell's gift certs kindly given to me for my birthday by thaitea and never_fear:

- Ziryab: Authentic Arab Cuisine, by Farouk Mardam-Bey.

- The Land That Never Was: Sir Gregor MacGregor and the Most Audacious Fraud in History by David Sinclair.

- Language Myths by Laurie Bauer & Peter Trudgill (eds.)

- After Jihad: America and the Struggle for Islamic Democracy by Noah Feldman.

- Nowhere Man by Aleksander Hemon.

- Guided Tours of Hell: Novellas by Francine Prose.

- An Anthology of Chinese Literature from Early Times to the Fourteenth Century by Cyril Birch (ed.)

- A School for Atheists: A Novella or Comedy in 6 Parts by Arno Schmidt.

- King, Vol. 3 by Ho Che Anderson.

- The Silver Age of Comic Book Art by Arlen Schumer. (Comics nerds, this one is highly recommended -- in-depth interviews and features about Ditko, Kirby, Colan, Infantino, Adams, Kane, and Steranko, gorgeous design and layout, some killer quotes, and lots of shop talk for you artists, including some really fascinating stuff on kinetics from Infantino and faces from Adams. Almost all the Amazon reviewers hated it, so you know it's good.)

Thanks, you two!
