Book purchases at Loncon 3

I did my fair share to support the book publishing industry, especially the small press community, when I was in the dealers' room at Loncon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, held August 14-19, 2014, in London.

The books pictured here represent some of the amazing vitality of small press publishing in Australia. As anyone who has tried to purchase books from Australia knows, shipping costs are remarkably high. I was very pleased to purchase these in person. Click to enlarge images.

Five paperbacks from Twelfth Planet Press, Australia.

A double, in the style of the old Ace Doubles, with Above by Stephanie Campisi 
back-to-back with Below by Ben Peek. 

 Cracklescape, four stories by Margo Lanagan, 
with an introduction by Jane Yolen.

 Love and Romanpunk, four stories by Tansy Rayner Roberts, 
with an introduction by Helen Merrick.

 Thief of Lives, four stories by Lucy Sussex, 
with an introduction by Karen Joy Fowler.

Caution: Contains Small Parts, four stories by Kirstyn McDermott,
