Well, for those of you who enjoyed Rennie Airth's John Madden books, he has a new one coming out (finally) in June of 2014. The title is The Reckoning . I cannot find it on PBS but AZN UK and Book Depository have it listed. I'm excited about this since I love, love, love these books!

also, Angus has another Robin Hood book coming out in the summer titled The Iron Castle.

Donna - Rennie Airth is in his 70's and he's not a prolific writer. I've had some contact with him via e-mails during the past couple of years and he assured me that there would be another Madden book coming out and it finally will be here! I'm prepared to pay full price for it from Book Depository but I'm a little nervous about ordering from them. The last couple of pre-orders I place were either canceled or I was told that they wouldn't be available on the date BD indicated. I raised holy hell with them over the last book and amazingly, they came up with a copy wwhich I finally received  - sheesh!
