You could use this book as a first if you have a general idea of basic concepts in quantum theory. It is a collection of very nicely written tutorials. They are done by authorities in the field, and cover the main trends. I especially liked Jozsa's chapter on quantum algorithms. By now there are also good textbooks that can get you started from scratch, such as Hirvensalo, or Nielsen-Chuang. If you have trouble getting hold the original journal articles, World Scientific just came out with a collection of major papers on quantum computation and quantum information, isbn 9810241178. It includes the full text [reprinted] of some of the papers which are cited in the present book; quite a few by the very same authors. That is a big help, as the papers in the subject are scattered and spread out over many different journals, and it might be hard to know where to start when logging into the arXiv.
