[04.02.07] The seventh and, reportedly, last book about Harry Potter and his friends at Hogwart - and their struggle against the dark Lord Voldemort. It is scheduled to be released on July 21st 2007.
Pre-order Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and be sure to receive the book immediately upon release. There is also an adult edition available for
pre-ordering, to be published on the same date.

[25.06.03] A veritable cornucopia of wit and sarcasm, The Penguin Dictionary of Modern Humorous Quotations should be savoured in small sips. It has 277 pages of wit organised thematically, with an author index. One of my favourites is Oscar Wilde's comment on hunting: "The English country gentleman galloping after a fox — the unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable."

[30.04.03]A must for the reader of modern crime novels, The Mammoth Encyclopedia of Modern Crime Fiction gives a encyclopedic view of post-war crime fiction. For non-English readers it is a drawback that very little non-English material is included, but it is a great fountain of facts about English language authors. Its scope is strictly crime, leaving thrillers out - it still fills 780 pages, so you'll have more than enough to read.
More Mammoth Encyclopedias or Mammoth Books of a surprisingly wide range of subjects - Erotic photography, Shaggy Dog stories, Murder and Science and so on....

[30.04.03] On April 24th 2003, Fatal Error, a new book by Michael Ridpath, was released. This time Ridpath takes us to the murky depths of the dot.com industry.

General info

On these pages I will inform you of books I believe could be of interest to you. I try to find books that give value for money, e.g. by linking to paperback editions and so forth.

Links will mainly be to Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com. Depending on where you live, the other bookstore may be more convenient to you. Note the ISBN number of the book, and use the links in the meny to the right to go to your bookstore, then search for the ISBN number there.

Suggestions for books to include, are welcomed.
