Not that book, but those ones

I have been looking for a particular book, The Mote in God's Eye, for quite a while. None of the Bristol bookshops had it, and Amazon had it only for delivery in 1 or 2 weeks (it was only available in the continent somewhere). However, while those weeks happened, the book went out of stock. I can't have my book. But look what I got instead!

The Best of Interweave Knits

I want to make (at least) the Icarus Shawl, Union Square Market Pullover, Simply Marilyn and Burma Rings.

Cute Stuff, by Aranzi Aronzo

Someone had it at my S'n'B, and was making felt monkeys, and I thought I must have it. It is also, as advertised, full of cute stuff.

The Noonday Demon, by Andrew Solomon

Less happy, but I've heard very good things about this book. Hopefully it will help me shake the leftovers out.

Now, does anybody know where I can find The Mote in God's Eye? I will check out London bookstores next time I'm around, but I don't have a lot of hope, suddenly.


  1. Waterstones lo tiene en stock - y envían por correo o puedes pedir que te lo lleven a tu Waterstones local. Parece interesante!

  2. here is some available at Abe's books http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/n/larry-niven/mote-in-gods-eye.htm

  3. Oh, my friend just bought the "cute stuff" book, and after she showed it to me, it went straight into my wish list! It really is full of cute stuff, isn't it!

    The Noonday Demon is GREAT! Yeah, less happy, but it's wonderful!
