My Totally Epic Book Haul – Part 2 of 3

Missed the first part of my epic book haul? Catch up here.

All right, kiddies, it’s time for the second part of my EPIC BOOK HAUL!

Please, contain your excitement. The books can’t handle it.

In no particular order, here’s another bunch of books I’ve accumulated since the start of the year.

The Writer’s Guide to WeaponsBenjamin Sobieck

This is a must-have for writers and editors (in my humble opinion). I mean, look at the kind of information it gives you:

Wimmen’s Comix No. 1

I’m a feminist, and this comic book made me laugh my ass off. Here’s a sample:

Pure genius, especially for when it was released (1972).

Your Illustrated Guide to Becoming One with the Universe, Yumi Sakugawa

And of course I’m here to give you a sampling of the illustrations:

The Subversive Copy EditorCarol Fisher Saller

An invaluable resource for editors such as myself.

Daughters of Hecate, Kimberly B. Stratton and Dayna S. Kalleres

I purchased this one for research for one of the books I have brewing in the back of my mind.

Eastern Body, Western MindAnodea Judith

I’m something of a crunchy hippie, so this book appealed to me. I mean, duh.

Stardust, Neil Gaiman


I’m a huge Neil Gaiman fan, and this is one I’ve never read. So when my buddy over at Collectible Science Fiction asked me if I wanted him to add it to my pile (yes, that’s how bad my book hoarding is), I answered with a resounding “YES!”

The One Year ManualDr. Israel Regardie

Who doesn’t want spiritual enlightenment in a year?

Learning from Dogs, Paul Handover

learning from dogs

I came across this book shortly after one of my dogs passed away in November. It automatically went on my to-buy/to-read list, and while I haven’t been able to bring myself to read it yet, I know I’ll love it.

All Our Wrongs Today, Elan Mastai

E.B. White is a treasure trove of good advice and nuggets of wisdom. Can’t wait to jump into this well-worn copy.

The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the GalaxyDouglas Adams

the ultimate hitchhikers guide to the galaxy

I’ve never read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (I know, I know–so bad). Now I have all five novels in one! Boo-yah!

That’s it, folks! Only one more part of the epic book haul left…

The above books were purchased via,, eBay, and Collectible Science Fiction.

*Heads up: if you click on the links to purchase any of the mentioned books from Amazon, know that I’m an affiliate. Your purchase will help me keep this blog going (i.e., I’ll earn money to buy books that I will then write about).*
