A collection of short stories featuring that famous barbarian from Cimmeria?  Count me in!  Just seeing Conan in the cover is enough to get me pumped up for the adventure contained within its pages.

BTW, regarding the post I did last 02/02/2010 on how SF books got some of the coolest covers, I would like to add that fantasy books also have some of the best covers ever!

I’m a big fan of the Godfather movies, even though I haven’t read any Mario Puzo novels.  But I think that would change now.  Because I got an offer I can’t refuse.  I just discovered a novel by Mario Puzo entitled Omerta.  And this might be the first Puzo book that I will read.

Yesterday I didn’t buy The Ghost War by Alex Berenson when I saw it at Book Sale, Alphaland Southgate Mall since the author’s name didn’t ring a bell (although the cover art is somewhat striking!).

When I get home, I checked out some book reviews and that convinced me. Alex Berenson is indeed a new author but his first book is already a bestseller and have also won an Edgar award for best first novel by an American author. The Ghost War is his second book featuring the same protagonist, John Wells, a CIA agent.  So this book is part of a new hit series.

Earlier today, I went to Book Sale and eagerly bought the book without hesitation.
