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 was browsing Book Sale, SM Fairview when I came across a book that caught my eye.  The book was Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill.  I knew that I’ve read about that book somewhere.  It took a few seconds then it came to me — this book is the critically-acclaimed first novel of the son of the great Stephen King himself!

Imagine my surprise when I see loads of J.R.R. Tolkien books at Book Sale, SM Fairview.  The first book that I got is The Children of Húrin.  The cover alone made me wanna buy it.  I saw this book years ago at NBS, Crossings and the cover also got my attention.  It truly has got one of the cooler fantasy covers.

The second book that I got is Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth also by Tolkien.  This one is thick volume and is an excellent addition to any library.

I would have bought the multi-part The History of Middle-earth but sadly only Part Four remained.

I’m so happy to discover a paperback edition of Stephen King’s Dark Tower VII at Book Sale, SM Fairview.  I have searched long and hard for a paperback edition of DTVII at Book Sale and National Bookstore to no avail.  But now my quest is over.  But this is no ordinary paperback.  This one’s HEAVY!  I’m thinking of buying a paperback edition so I can bring it and read it while travelling on the MRT or LRT.  But given the weight of this paperback, I might still not be able to bring it along with me.

Upon closer inspection of the book, it looks to have the complete illustrations of the hardback.  Although, the letters seem so tiny that it could be a burden to a reader’s eye.  All these aside, it’s a worthy addition to my Dark Tower collection.
