More trees cut off in their prime

A good haul of books today, a mix of nerd genres! This has got to stop, as I'll soon be moving into a much more expensive flat, which will be filled with bookshelves.

I received Edward Vallance's A Radical History of Britain, Christopher Brookmyre's comic novel Pandaemonium, Jedediah Berry's (didn't he found Springfield?) steampunk The Manual of Detection, the Crisis on Infinite Earths book (the 1985 superhero strip which resolved the horrific mess the DC canon had got into) and H. G. Wells's Tono-Bungay and A Modern Utopia in a single edition from some time in the 1920s.

Good lord, are you really, actually, truthfully moving out of Whitmore Reans?

Thanks for that Dan. Yes, I really, really am. Guaranteed.* Subject to references.
