Some of Lawrence Schoonover's books from the 50's are being reissued (Queen's Cross, Gentle Infidel and The Spider King so far). From what I understand Schoonover's great-nephew is behind it (I don't know enough about the publishing industry to know whether this is considered self published or if he started his own publishing company in order to do it or what). But I think it's kinda cool that he's doing this to get his uncles work back into print.

Found this on Amazon UK:
"Tutankhamun" by Nick Drake, Mar 2009, not sure when it'll be released in the US.

I read his book "Nefertiti" and enjoyed it.

Thanks guys. I was hoping it wasn't another "daughter" of Elizabeth what if novel. I tried that one and didn't make it very far.

Is that "The Virgin Queen's Daughter"? Is it that bad?

It was that bad on Saturday, but I do admit to trying it right after the emotional high of Cashelmara, plus its first person POV as well which I'm not terribly fond of. I'm going to give it another go and I really couldn't even get through the first chapter. I don't mind a "what if" novel, but the writing and storyline had better be pretty damn good. Mediocre won't cut it then.
