Ballantine fantasy series paperbacks in the background?
Yes, but you can't actually see them in this shot. Behind Feanor you can see the bottom two shelves of a seven-shelf bookcase, the top two shelves of which are devoted to the Adult Fantasy Series. I've got all the titles, though I must confess there are a few of them I've never read, even now. Speaking of which, one of the dealers-room booksellers at NorWesCon this past weekend had a shelfful of A.F.S. Ballantines for sale: I counted twenty-eight titles, the most I've ever seen for sale at one time and place. Since I already have the whole series, the book I walked away with was a 1950 hardcover of Pratt & de Camp's THE INCOMPLETE ENCHANTER, for just $3.00. Wow. Really looking forward to re-reading this one; it's been a while, and I'd been reminded of it by Shippey's mention in the audio-course lectures on Heroes of his I've been listening to. --John R.
