Queen’s Day Bargains 2

Like the year before Queen’s Day in the Netherlands is ideal for getting cheap book bargains as people are free to put the stuff they don’t want anymore for sale on the street. This year I picked up three books. The first two are a Science Fiction duology by Dan Simmons: Ilium (2003) and Olympus (2005). I’m a fan of Simmons’ Hyperion Saga, although I haven’t tried his other works, so now is the chance to do so. The third is the historical novel The Quincunx, The Heritage Of John Huffam (1989), by Charles Palliser. On the last novel I had heard some praises by friends in the past but for some reason I hadn’t picked it up yet.
