A reader just sent me a crate of the complete Ballantine Adult Fantasy series edited by Lin Carter, which was the backbone of all fantasy reading for SFF fans of my generation. The wife and I are debating which of our twelve bookshelves to clear off and give all these unwrinkled paperbacks a fine new home and place of honor.

I have no idea, money-wise, what this collection is worth. A lot. But in terms of memories of the post-Tolkien fantasy Big Bang the cost is peerless and beyond compare.

My deepest gratitude. I have to go find the fellow’s address and write him a thank you.
