New paperback edition in the UK

Postby humanracer » Sat Jul 15, 2017 9:33 pm

Published by Pan, a copy of a 1915 edition. 472 pages. Paul Bailey writes an introduction where he calls Hugo a hypocrite, stating that he enjoyed himself with hundreds of women who sold themselves for gateaux, if not bread.

Abridged is all I could find at Half Price Books, which usually has everything. I checked "certain episodes" and they weren't there. Rats to that! I checked out a paperback from the library and it was so thick it was practically unreadable. Sticking to Kindle.
Don't mess with Texas! We mess up enough by ourselves.
I have actually made bullets like they're doing in my avatar. Then loaded the gun with a ramrod, and shot it. But I'm not feeling real good about guns right now.
