Seong-Kook Shin's Bookshelf

These are some of my purchased book list. I made this page for my personal use, since I frequently forgot what I've bought and what I've read.

What made me surprised is that some people asked me about my recent book list for an advice or for their own purpose. Since they have similar skills that I have, and they have similar tastes of books, I decided to maintain this page for public.

Don't take serious my description of each book here; They're really personal descriptions. You may criticize that some of descriptions are not correct, or not suitable. For example, some of mathematics books here may have some bad tendency of criticism. In this case, you must catch that my mathematics is very bad. ;-)

It is very boring, time-consuming work to typing each book information whenever I buy a new book. Thus this page is automatically generated based on book information using Tcl scripts and Makefile. If you want to know more about this automation, read here.

They must seek out a rival priest, in hopes that he can speed them on their way to the goddess herself, but can one dark elf ever trust another?

Quenthel Baenre is second only to the matron mother and is Menzoberranzan's most powerful priestess of Lolth. When the Spider Queen goes silent, Quenthel is called upon to lead a team of dark elves on a mission that could save Menzoberranzan or doom it forever. With the cunning wizard Pharaun Mizzrym, weapons master Ryld Argith, mercenary Valas Hune, and the vicious draegloth Jeggred by her side, the priestess is sent to the trade city of Ched Nasad to determine the scope of Lolth's silence.

Is Menzoberranzan alone being punished? Are all the drow? Is it just Lolth, or have all the gods gone quiet?

The answers to these questions will determine the fate of the entire drow race and set the course for the future of the Underdark. If the powerful dark elves falter, the world below is open for Insurrection

The War of the Spider Queen spreads.
