I tried both the paperback and hardback versions of "Doomsday Book," but both have very small print, and I had trouble reading them. (I gave up after a few pages.) Is there a version with larger print?

Larry,

Probably the edition with the largest type would be the original hard back (not the book club), which goes for quite a bit since it is rare. The trade paperback edition is probably the one with the largest type that can be found in used book stores. To use larger type on the mass market paperback edition would probably make it too thick.

I always check this web site for any news regarding the upcoming novel "All Clear" by Connie but have been out of luck. It seems this book is long overdue, any idea when it will see the light of day?

Thanks

For those that have read Bellwether...

At the very end of the book Connie predicts the return of the Pineapple upsidedown cake. On the exact same day that I finished the book I went to a cafe in Luala Lumpur and saw this...

New! Pineapple Upsidedown!

The coincidence was so much I just had to post this.
