The Dagger and the Coin series by Daniel Abraham

Item Name and Description:

This is the complete five-volume fantasy series by Daniel Abraham, consisting of these books:

  1. The Dragon’s Path
  2. The King’s Blood
  3. The Tyrant’s Law
  4. The Widow’s House
  5. The Spider’s War

The first three volumes were an offering from the publisher in a Con or Bust auction a few years ago; they are signed. I purchased the other two volumes new.

All five have been read once, carefully. They are in good shape but have typical edgewear for trade paperbacks. The picture shows the actual books being sold.

Starting Bid: $40

Shipping: United States only – anywhere else would be prohibitively expensive

Other Notes: n/a

The Collected Stories of Roger Zelazny – full 6-volume set

Item Name and Description:

In 2009 NESFA Press published this set of six hardcover volumes containing all of Roger Zelazny’s short fiction. They also contain his poetry, some non-fiction pieces (mostly about Amber as I recall), and a short novel or two. They also have some biographical and background information from the editors.

These volumes have been read once each, but carefully, so the interiors are in fine shape. The jackets are generally good but have the expected rubbing spots and minor edge nicks (these jackets appear particularly prone to rubbing spots). The picture shows the actual books being sold.

Starting Bid: $120

Shipping: United States only – anywhere else would be prohibitively expensive

Other Notes: n/a

Bidding is now open and will end Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown), EXCEPT that last-minute bidding on an item will extend the bidding for that item. More information.

Ebook Bundle: The Complete Magic University by Cecilia Tan

Item Name and Description:

This item is the digital bundle of all four Magic University novels, the Spellbinding short story collection, and the recently released Christmas Magic novella (sequel). Winner can choose mobi for Kindle, epub, or PDF format. Files will be sent via email.

Kyle Wadsworth arrives at Harvard not knowing that a) he’s magical, b) this means he needs to attend the hidden magical university inside Harvard called Veritas. Kyle is good-natured and kind and when his magical talents begin to manifest in the realm of sex magic, he finds no shortage of practice partners, not even after he learns of the bisexuality prerequisite for a degree in “esoteric studies.”

The Siren and the Sword is contemporary urban fantasy with lots of hot sex, or maybe it’s contemporary urban sex with lots of hot fantasy, or maybe…hmmm. I don’t know, actually. I guess I’ll have to read it again to decide. And again. And again.”
— Steven Brust, author of the Vlad Taltos series

Bundle includes:

  1. The Siren and the Sword
  2. The Tower and the Tears
