It's been nearly ten years since I disposed of books in any quantity (ie. anything approaching 5% or so of the collection) so it's time for another cull. They come in three main categories, and if any of you want any of them, sing out now! Otherwise, they'll go to a charity shop when I have the spoons. I don't want anything for them (unless it's really valuable to you for some odd reason, in which case mine's a pint of IPA) but I can't do postage. Happy to meet up and hand things over, if you're within range or we're going to be meeting anyway in the next month or two.

First, actual decent books I have duplicates of, or know I can find again in the unlikely event of actually wanting to re-read them.

Kit Whitfield - Bareback
Joe Haldeman - The Forever War
Paolo Bacigalupi - Ship Breaker
Joe Abercrombie - The Blade Itself/Before They Are Hanged
Charles Stross - The Clan Corporate/The Hidden Family (books 2 and 3 of 6)
Alberto Moravia - The Woman of Rome
Scarlett Thomas - The End of Mr Y
Juliet E McKenna - Banners in the Wind (book 2 of 3)
Robin Hobb - Shaman's Crossing (book 1 of ?)

Second, half-decent tat and books I don't want but someone might.

Kate: The Woman Who Was Katharine Hepburn (HB)
Grant McKenzie - No Cry For Help
A3R Roberts - Star Warped
Jane Lindskold - Through Wolf's Eyes
SM Stirling - Drakon
Trudi Canavan - Priestess of the White (HB; 1 of 3)
The Penguin Dictionary of Curious & Interesting Numbers
Ruchir Joshi - The Last Jet Engine Laugh
John Julius Norwich - More Christmas Crackers

Third, there's a crate or so of things I have trouble imagining anyone, anywhere, ever wanting to read. (Not exhaustive, mostly listed for comedic effect.)

Philip Palmer - Debatable Space
Jonathan Green - Unnatural History (and another from the same publisher which I haven't even bothered to open)
David & Leigh Eddings - The Rivan Codex
The Cloggies' Cookbook
Piers Anthony - Chaining the Lady/Being A Green Mother
3rd Edition C++ How to Program (2001)
Nicholson Baker - The Fermata
Visual Basic 6 Certification Exam Guide
Ayn Rand - Atlas Shrugged
John Norman - Assassin/Explorers/Fighting Slave of Gor
