Fresh book catch

Our office gave us an extra half day off work, so we decided to spend the afternoon trawling for books at the bargain floor of the NBS Superstore. Added to my piles of yet-to-read books:

    The Fatal Shore by Robert Hughes
    non-fiction, history - about the colonization of Australia

    Nathaniel's Nutmeg by Giles Milton
    non-fiction, history - the story of nutmeg, the spice trade, captain Nathaniel Courthope and the island of Run

    Black Maria by Diana Wynne Jones
    children's fantasy fiction

    The Kin by Peter Dickinson
    children's historical fiction

    All Tomorrow's Parties by William Gibson
    science fiction

    Super-State by Brian Aldiss
    science fiction

    Night Watch by Stephen Kendrick
    mystery/detective fiction - Sherlock Holmes meets Father Brown

Another half year's reading added. I think I'm up to five years now.
