From My Bookshelf
It is a particular pleasure to read a book by a favourite* author that you've never read before...in my case I've managed it twice in two months. Firstly with Roger Zelazny's non-SF book The Deadman's Brother...which could almost be a precursor to The Da Vinci Code since it is a tale of art and international Vatican related skullduggery...and secondly with Philip Jose Farmer's Lord Tyger - I am almost at the end of this and now reading at a snail's pace because I don't want it to end. Two copies of this have languished disgracefully on my shelf for years - but now it might just be my fave Farmer novel. The cover is by Richard Clifton-Dey who I know best as the cover artist on the Mayflower Six Million Dollar Man books Cyborg and Operation Nuke.
* Yes US readers favorite has a U in it in England.
