    I read Andre Norton's Storm Over Warlock and it was good. The ending was predictable but the story was not. So good!

    Neil Gaiman - The Ocean at the End of the Lane

    On Overdrive at The Arkansas Digital Library Consortium there are 5 of 6 copies available.

    On Amazon it sells for between $5 and $10.

    I think we can consider this book available and a good selection for the book club.

    I am reading some of Andre Norton's public domain books. When pulp authors got their 6 cents a word they transferred copyright to the publishers. At that time copyrights had to be renewed or they would expire. Since many of the pulp magazines would go out of business a lot of golden age fiction entered the public domain because the copyrights weren't renewed. I rely on Gutenberg for this copyright research and more importantly for the available downloads.I am reading some of Andre Norton's public domain books.

    It's an interesting story but very early and not as good as the Andre Norton book I'm reading now.

    This was before he got fed up with the genre and started to bend it. :D

    Yes, it is a genre piece written for the pulps with competent protagonists and an evil villian.
