Book shopping

Just managed to fit in a little bookshopping along with work-type meetings in London. Tracked down the Fantasy Centre in Islington - actually a little smaller than I expected, but that's because they don't bother stocking the "cheap stuff". Looked in at New Worlds/Murder One as well. I'm sure things never used to be this expensive. But I picked up Hell's Cartographers and three of the four James White books on my Irish sf list at the former, and the Ted Chiang collection and latest Dozois Year's Best SF at the latter.

Must go catch train back to in-laws in Kidderminster now. Going to Ireland for three weeks on Thursday.
