Hergé has often been referred to as the Jules Verne of the 20th century. Another author whom many consider to be a modern day Jules Verne is Michael Crichton.
Coincidence or not - long out of print books of both these authors are to be republished in July 2013.
Ten Michael Crichton novels written while the author was in medical school and 7 of which have not been in print since the Seventies will be re-published on July 23rd.Peppy and Virginny in Lapinoland
the new title for Popol Out West
will be publsihed for the first time in 21 years on July 11th 2013.
Indian online store, flipkart.com, is selling the book at Rs. 1070 (around $20 U.S.), and I have already reserved my copy.Moderator Note:
It's obvious what you did there, but you are going way too far off topic to suggets that, just because someone, somewhere, might once have compared Michael Chrichton to Jules Verne, that you can shoe-horn something about Chrichton and Hergé having books re-published in July into the Verne thread
, so your post has been moved here,and combined with the post you made hee at the same time.
Even then it's a bit of stretch that word on Chrichton should be here rather than in the Member's Lounge, but it's difficult to split a post in two; however, any discussion of Mr Chrichton and his works should be started in a thread in the Lounge, and not in this one, where you can talk about the Popol
