Interesting assortment. If you get half of them you'll have a really great time. Do let us know how it goes.

I got Camper Van Blues on Friday - read it in one gulp. That doesn't happen often with me.

Sorlil said...

Thanks for your comment Sorlil. Glad you discovered my blog and gave it a read. Grazie tanto!

I too want a copy of Shugs new book, but by the sounds of it I won't get a copy. I'm going to attend his reading in Edinburgh, perhaps I can fish a copy off of him, afterall, I'll be imposing a copy of my book on him.

take care.
I'll be reading/
