DOUG'S BOOKS, MARCH 2017 NEWSLETTER AND ADDITIONAL BOOKS & CHAT

Photo of Doug Nicholson Hi Good People, New & Old,

I have frequently been told by many of you that, even when not looking for the latest books, you like to read the idle chatter that I like to use to introduce my new and available books each month.I doubt whether many of you have had to wait for over 70 years to fulfil an ambition as I have just done ? When I was a little boy in war-torn Britain I had a serious bout of whooping cough,the result of which, I ended up cross-eyed, but with the aid of spectacles the right eye returned to normality the weaker left-eye, the lazy eye, did not. Over the years a succession of opticians and eye-specialists assured me that my sight would benefit very little from an operation. This week however,after 70 years I have finally had an operation that will, I have been advised, increase my overall sight.
What, I hear you all saying, has this got to do with my latest books ?
Absolutely nothing ! Just a good little story to warm the cockles of you hearts ! Just never give up hope !
For those of you still with me I would like to mention a trend in book purchasing............
Whilst Africana remains the bulk of my sales', Collectable Books' of relatively modern fiction are now much sought after.Whilst we are all aware of the collectability of Ian Fleming "Bonds" and the older Wilbur Smith's I could name a number, such as Alistair Maclean or James Clavell , where I am not just asked for their best sellers but the whole range or for titles they need to complete their own collections. Now that is what I call "collectable"Look to the future and you will see a new and larger section devoted to "Collectable"on my web site. Now for my new listings:-
