Off The Shelf; Barry N. Malzberg

I have to admit that I wasn’t really aware of Barry N. Malzburg until around a year or so ago when I picked up a copy of his Destruction Of The Temple novel, mainly due to its eye catching cover art. I enjoyed reading it so much that I began searching for more of his books and have subsequently ended up with a fine selection of titles. Here are six of my favourite covers taken from that collection, a few of which are still as yet unread;

    Hi

    I have heard a lot of good things about Malzburg and i have been picking up his books recently. Now I just have to read them. I like the cover of Guernica Night I have not seen it before. So many books so little time.

    Happy Reading
    Guy

      Great to hear that you’ve discovered Malzberg too Guy, I can’t help but feel that he’s a very overlooked writer and am eternally grateful to my friend for putting me onto him. I’m sure you’ll enjoy his work immensely, I haven’t read anything yet I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. You’re totally right about the time aspect too, there are still large portions of my library I have yet to tackle but still I keep on picking up books in the hope I’ll have sufficient time to read them. All the best as ever.
