I finally own ALL THREE Barry Hughart novels (Bridge of Birds, The Story of the Stone, & Eight Skilled Gentlemen). Just got a library copy of Story of the Stone in the mail, after looking for the damn thing for years and years.
Now I can finally READ it.
I think I have cadhla, by way of netdancer, to thank for these. I THINK. Or perhaps it was oneminutemonkey and alemya. Somebody in the Crosstimes MUSH group, at any rate.
Whomever it is that I ought to thank- I can also now harbor a lingering sulky resentment NO LONGER about the fact I couldn't find the damned thing.
  • Doh.

    They just re-released all three in a trade paperback edition from 'The Stars Our Destination' press. Probably about 6 months or so ago? Maybe a little more. Probably not as collectible though. :)

    I need to finish up the series too. So much fun. I think I'll re-read from the beginning. :) I picked up the trade paperback at Borderlands a bit ago. It's next on my list after I finish Guns, Germs, and Steel.

  • I have the omnibus edition from 1998, and although it looks nice it's got some editing problems. You're probably better off with the individual volumes.
  • I've read all of them, my sister has the copy from the Sci-Fi Book Club. I have a copy of The Story of the Stone in hardback, and Eight Skilled Gentlemen in trade paperback, but I'm still trying to get my hands on The Bridge of Birds. When I do, I'm making my boyfriend read all of them.
