Hello! I'm in Edinburgh, and have a fair number of books. Most of my novels are nineteenth-century or earlier, with the exception of SF and fantasy, any of which are OK to borrow. I have quite a lot of Renaissance plays.

First begs:

Has anybody got a copy of Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's Mr Punch graphic novel? I can't find it anywhere! If anyone wants a recording of the radio play, I've got it.

Any Ursula K Le Guin, particularly the early stuff (not Earthsea books)?

Don Quixote in a good English translation.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.

Pale Fire by Vladimir Nabokov.

I'd be happy to borrow any of these and will not spill coffee on them.

I think I've got some Ursula Le Guin. Got Left Hand of Darkness and a book of short stories (Fireflood). Plus I think one or two more.

I'm hoping to be travelling through to Edinburgh before Christmas so could meet up then.

Fireflood in Vonda McIntyre. Doh! But I do have the Dispossessed and I think the Lathe of Heaven.

I have Left Hand of Darkness already, but have not read these short stories. Come to that, I've also got The Dispossessed and The Telling but anything else would be most welcome.

I work quite near Waverley, so meeting might not be too tricky if you were travelling that way.
