I Want This Book

posted by on November 11 at 15:00 PM

Hang Fire Books just put this cover up on their blog:


I’m a big fan of Second Coming novelsóOnly Begotten Daughter by James Morrow is a particular favorite, and this one looks cheesily delicious. If any used bookstores in town have this on their shelf right now and available for purchase, please let me know. I will love you forever.

UPDATE: Bookstoregirl, in the comments, found the book and had it put on hold for me at Twice Sold Tales. I just dragged my lazy ass to the bookstore and bought it. In conclusion, I will love both Bookstoregirl and Twice Sold Tales Forever.

Hah - I read that when I was a teen. I remember nothing, except I do believe it was cheesily delicious.

The cover makes it look like the romance novel version of The Fountainhead.

I'm being reminded of "A Creed For The Third Millenium"...

Holy dad had that in his collection when I was a kid.

Only Begotten Daughter is one of my all-time favorites. It was one of the first books I ordered when I joined the SciFi Book Club.

How did the '70s have such awful fashions yet such awesome book covers and movie posters?

Wow. I read this book when I was 13. It was very entertaining, to a 13 year old.
