Enjoy them Mad I did but I'm a big Moorcock fan, and they look good in the bookcase, they duplicate some of the 1st's I already have.
They were put together by Debbie when she started the Millennium imprint, she went on to marry Tad Williams. :mrgreen:

Speaking of Douglas Adams, Do you know what I found at the charity shop? All 4 Hitch Hiker books plus Mostly Harmless, in very good nick. I was looking at replacing my copies cause they are the only copies I've ever bought and they're quite old now.

How good is that? It was meant to be :romance-admire:

That does look good, I think I'll have to get a copy. The cover for the Mostly Harmless edition I found is a little bit similar -

I couldn't find the covers for the other 4 books but they are published by Pan.

Happy reading all.

The Eye of Zoltar. Jasper Fforde

The third installment of the dragonslayer books is essentially a road trip with the expected side of bizarre and fantastic.
Enjoyable.

It's been a while but I've read The Liveship Traders and Farseer trilogies, they were excellent.

Have just started reading I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou.

I'm reading and enjoying the book that 12 Years A Slave is based on. "Twelve Years a Slave" by Solomon Northup. The book was published in 1853 and is a memoir of the actual events.

Just before leaving on my trip, I read a book called Why Are You So Sad? by Jason Porter. It was hilarious! One of the funniest books I've read in a long time.

Porter’s uproarious, intelligent debut centers on Raymond Champs, an illustrator of assembly manuals for a home furnishings corporation, who is charged with a huge task: To determine whether or not the world needs saving. It comes to him in the midst of a losing battle with insomnia — everybody he knows, and maybe everybody on the planet, is suffering from severe clinical depression. He’s nearly certain something has gone wrong. A virus perhaps. It’s in the water, or it’s in the mosquitoes, or maybe in the ranch flavored snack foods. And what if we are all too sad and dispirited to do anything about it? Obsessed as he becomes, Raymond composes an anonymous survey to submit to his unsuspecting coworkers — “Are you who you want to be?”, “Do you believe in life after death?”, “Is today better than yesterday?” — because what Raymond needs is data. He needs to know if it can be proven. It’s a big responsibility. People might not believe him. People, like his wife and his boss, might think he is losing his mind. But only because they are also losing their minds. Or are they?
“It is the peculiar nature of the world to go on spinning no matter what sort of heartbreak is happening.”
― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees:

I got a copy of the Hive it's a proof trade paperback copy at Worldcon which won the T.P. award it looks quite good just had a flick through it. It looks to a bit cycberpunkish.
