Not news, but a thought that just occurred to me. 
I'd love to see some pair ups of writers who have similar mindsets in some ways, like Ursula Vernon's practical heroines and those of Patricia C. Wrede.

From Locus Magazine:
PKD News
April 20, 2019

A first edition of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick (1968) was pulled from the shelves in a Tennessee Library, to be trashed or sold at the Friends of the Memphis Public Library book shop, when staff member Geoff Hopkins noticed the book and realized its value. The library’s online sales manager Louise Brown listed the book online for $1,250, and sold it within a few weeks, bringing in a record sum for a single book sold by that library. “This thing was going to be thrown away, and I can’t imagine how many programs that it will fund for the library,” Brown told a local newspaper. “It’s what we’re calling the ‘sale of the decade.'”

Excellent catch by Mr. Hopkins.

Oh, good.
I'm thinking of treating myself to the new Neil Gaiman graphic adaptation of ... it's either Snow White or The Snow Queen.
