One of the highlights of Ravencon for me was totally unexpected - I had great luck in grabbing some vintage paperbacks from a few of the dealers. Some of these are books that I read and loved when I was young, and in many cases I hadn't seen in many years.
"Time Enough For the Stars" hooked me on Heinlein juveniles when I was in grade school.
"The Chess Men of Mars" - and that cover - made a big impression with me and was probably the first Edgar Rice Burroughs book I read.
"The Magic Goes Away" also greatly impressed me. I always throught it had one of the best "hook" intros I ever read.
That particular edition of "Telempath" resonates because of the cover - that's the Columbia University campus in the background. I literally walked past that sundial a thousand times while in college.
The other two Heinlein books - "Time Enough For Love" and "Farnham's Freehold" - have eluded me over the years, and I have never read them, so I was glad to snatch them up, also.
