    Exciting Book News!

    Know of a pre-sale or release date of a new book by an author you like? Or just want to hype up something you've picked up recently?

    Post it here.

    The Complete Short Stories by Philip K. Dick by the Folio Society

    Oh it looks gorgeous!

    I been into the Folio Society for a while but fair warning, they are never cheap. You have to really want it or want to gift it to justify the prices in my mind... (and as such, I have scant few titles... but the ones I do have are quality thru and thru).

    Awaiting the new John Higgs, "William Blake Vs The World". I liked his KLF book so I will give this a shot as well.

    Okay, a bit less exciting but... I'm hoping that this book gets fully funded. A Feast of Folklore by Ben Gazur

    Aside from trusting the author a bit with the material, I also picked this up to continue the threads that Robert Anton Wilson laid down in many of his works...
