Those are some good additions, I plan to order some more EL books soon. It's too bad I think that they don't have a subscription service like LOA.

Thanks for passing this on. The Pamuk is a very well-written book and I might pick up an EL edition and I have been looking or a nice Bradbury edition.

I just picked up the Bradbury and am looking forward to the Christopher Buckley introduction.

I've yet to touch Dracula, so here is my opportunity. Pamuk is a major coup for Everyman's--I assume this will be in the Contemporary line.

Very much looking forward to the Bradbury, Wells, and Asimov volumes. I'm a fan of the first two and have been meaning to read the third for a long time.

I've purchased the Bradbury volume; thinking about Anne Frank, but torn between the EL and the FS editions. There's no way I'll end up with two different editions of the same work though. Decisions, decisions...

6,8> My problem with the Asimov Everyman is Michael Dirda's introduction. Dirda claims that his Introduction does not include any SPOILERS, but in fact the Introduction includes a reference to a character who first appears in the second book (Foundation and Empire), which may not be an horrendous SPOILER but it's still enough of a SPOILER that I wish Dirda hadn't brought it up.

This didn't bother me, since I read the trilogy decades ago and got the Everyman for its quality binding. For a newcomer using the Everyman edition, though, I'd strongly recommend NOT reading Dirda's Introduction until you've finished the trilogy.

>12 EclecticIndulgence:
I already have the two LOA Mark Twain: Collected Tales, Sketches, Speeches and Essays volumes, so I'll skip The Complete Short Stories.
I think I'll pick up the Julian Barnes and I've never read The Remains of the Day so... maybe that also.

kesäkuu 18, 2012, 12:49 pm

I already have the Folio Society Remains of the Day, but have never read Flaubert's Parrot. I will definitely pick that one up.

I'm a James nut, so I've got the entire Library of America collection of the novels and the stories (though not the other miscellaneous volumes). It seems the LoA would be the better way to buy James, since you get multiple works to a single volume at not much greater expense than Everyman (especially if you buy at some discount and with free shipping from the LoA website).

While I definitely like Everyman, I can't see buying the Cather volume of poems when you can get a more comprehensive volume from the Library of America. The same applies as to James for Washington Square.

Not much there for me. I have a Heritage Press Washington Square. I can't see rereading Verne, but if I ever did, I would want an illustrated edition.
