Caelum’s Bookshelf – May / June 2020

So, I snuck into Caelum’s room while our favourite space deer was asleep, and got the low-down on some new books that are coming out in the next month or so. Some of these are written by authors I know, and some are books I’ve been waiting to get my hands on. Have a look,… Continue reading Caelum’s Bookshelf – May / June 2020
