FREE BOOKS: More science fiction paperbacks, and some mysteries

I'm giving away books that I won't re-read, and books where I have multiple copies. If you'd like any of these, comment to list the ones you want. If multiple people want the same book, I'll toss a coin. Preference given to people in southern Ontario (so I can hand-deliver them to you) or in Canada (so I can mail them to you at reasonable cost).

If you are in the US and really really want some of them, I'll need your full legal name, address, and telephone number for the customs paperwork. For people outside the US and Canada - unless the book isn't available in your region, the postage would likely be more than the price of buying it locally.
