A quickie to point out three gems in the Kindle Spring Sale (ends April 24th):
- Welcome to Night Vale: Everything to do with Night Vale is 10/10. So just buy it. I have nothing more to add.

- The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer: Disclaimer, this isn’t very good. Or rather, I didn’t rate it much back in ’92 & haven’t bothered to reread it since.But, the Twin Peaks reboot is a dream come true (assuming it’s not rubbish.
