Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series - Part 5

Finally, I've reached the end of my collection of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy series with this mish mash of single volumes.

Firstly, Poul Anderson's Broken Sword about which I can't remember a thing, and Red Moon And Black Mountain by Joy Chant, which I remember being quite an engaging young adult fantasy where three teenagers are transported to another world with the purpose of saving it from an evil destiny.

Then there's Excalibur, an Arthurian fantasy by Sanders Anne Laubenthal and the fabulously strange Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay.

Finally The Shaving of Shagpat, a middle eastern fantasy by George Meredith and the The Blue Star by Fletcher Pratt. This edition is not really in the Ballantine series, though originally an earlier edition was.

An lastly, another collection of fantasy stories edited by Lin Carter, Golden Cities Far.


Coming next, more paperback fantasy, when I have had time to scan them for your visual pleasure.

A rare thing to see the cover of Voyage to Arcturus. It's one of my dearest pieces of writing.

I found you through Ann O'Dyne, who posted your link in a comment [on my blog], thinking there might be some synergy of subject matter. Tis true. We ought to post each other's links

Hi Sam,

I checked out your blog and saw Ann O'Dyne's comment - wow!!

I'll certainly put a link to your blog on Eye Candy - us Aussie bloggers need to connect.

Isn't Sam just a lovely guy to actually follow the suggestion of that sweet woman who is trying to be Ann O'Dyne?

I got here via F.X.Holden A Lan Downunder, but he never comes to my blog so I won't praise him with thanks.

I quite agree that Sam is a lovely guy even if I have never met him.

Nice to virually meet you too BWCA
