Nice collection.
Please, would you mind to rate those books or do a little deeper description of them? :?
As a fan I am quite confused about some of the books ....I would like to buy some but it is really too many of them and don't have a clear idea about most.
It would be good for fans to have an overall idea about what they might encounter. Thanks. :)
