has anyone read this book?  i cannot find it, and there is no kind of review anywhere (amazon, literary guild, etc.)  i found a used book (one copy) for $ 75.00, which is absurd.  anyone  know where one might be located?  is it worth reading?  how do i find one at a reasonable price?   thanks. linda

About the only thing you can do is put it on your wishlist and hope you get it soon, or pay $75 dollars for it (CRAZY).

i forgot to say it is on my wish list, where it has been languishing for many months.   i have all their other books, and would like to read this one.  childs and preston are VERY rarely posted with any of their titles, since i think most people keep them.  anyone willing to loan it to me?

I've had a few of their books on my bookshelf but they always go fast. Right now I only have the Relic up for grabs. I've made a note to keep my eye out for Superstition since I'm always buying books at yard sales, libraries etc. I'm waiting for a book by F. Paul Wilson called The Haunted Air. Been on my wish list for awhile now. They wanted $35.00 for it on Amazon. I can wait!!!! Good Luck finding your book. I sometimes think the search is just as much fun and the reading of a book.

I have read it.  While it is very good, it's a little different then what they usually do.  I traded it in a BoB recently so keep your eyes open and hopefully it will resurface.

I have to wonder if people know what this book really is. It is the Roman version of Relic. It is NOT written in English.
