      Shocking that we've got to April and it's "none so far". Well, none for myself. I am starting to dig into the "still to read" pile which is good!

        Rothgo, good to see you back man. I am in the same status, my still to-read pile is big.

          Managed to obtain Michael Moorcock's new versions published by Centipede Press of:

          The Sleeping Sorceress, The Sailor On The Seas Of Fate and The Fortress Of The Pearl.

          unfortunately none of the above are the signed and numbered copies

          If anyone has a copy of Elric Of Melnibone they want to sell please let me know, but not the silly extortionate prices that have been on Ebay recently

            Preston and Child's latest Pendergast book, Crooked River. I have about 5 other books to read before getting to this one.

              Yesterday while shopping for an ill relative recently released from hospital and now recovering at home from a non- Covid 19 infection i took a 10 minute detour to visit a second-hand bookstore quite close by to the grocery store and luckily for me both were within walking distance of my current place of residence ( in yet another one dog town...)

              For the reasonable sum of $5.50 i acquired the following two novels :

              The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury ( a replacement copy ) and one not read before by someone also in my own top 10 list of favorite writers : There are Doors by Gene Wolfe.

                Man, I love these two books. I only have the digital version of both. Good to know you are also a Gene Wolfe fan!
                Congrats on the purchase!
