This summer brought a miracle of good luck* when I happened upon two nice collections of Sagan’s work in a silent auction. I scored enough books that I’m slowly closing in on having his entire published works.
However, my collection is far from complete! For those of you wondering what to get me this Carl Sagan Day (November 7th), I give you this list of wants:
–> Planets (1966)
–> Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence (1973)
–> Other Worlds (1975)
–> Murmurs of the Earth (1983)
–> Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors (1992)
–> Billions and Billions:Thoughts on Life and Death at the Brink of the Millennium (1997)
Of these books, I’m most ashamed that I don’t own the last one; seeing as how it was the last book he ever wrote. I need to rectify that.
Oh, and if you’ll notice in the picture above, that is an actual paper-bound textbook for Cosmos! It has 13 chapters that correspond to the 13 episodes, complete with assignments and study guides! Awesome, huh?
