Fantastic news for the thousands of overseas readers of this blog: King of the Cross is now available from amazon.co.uk at the I-lose-about-ten-dollars price of £4.99. It’s being sold as “used-like new” from Oswaldley Bookstore, but all copies are actually new and Oswaldley is my mate Roger. Other dealers stock it, but only Roger’s are new. Buy it for your friends and family in the UK for Easter (it’s more traditional than a chocolate egg) or pesach (it tastes better than a burnt offering). It’s the ideal gift for birthdays, weddings, funerals, Anzac Day, Liberation Day (Italy) and the May Day holiday.
And if you are a young adult, or used to be a young adult, or know somebody who’s a young adult, you should also buy Roger’s own book, Echo McCool, Outlaw Through Time.
Imagine the thrill of owning two books by people who used to live in the same house. You can’t buy that sort of experience.
Well, obviously, you can. But you couldn’t until last week.
