....absolutely nothing Marsha....no snail mail or e-mail.....I became a member over 25 years ago, not like I'd just joined up.....
That's what we figured. The only way we found out is that someone had complained about their website and let us know that the SKL had told them that they would not be offering THE OUTSIDER so I'd asked Stephen's agent if the Library was defunct. He's the one who told me they haven't been licensed to do any new books but did not get into the whys.

how did it even work, I can not see any point to any book clubs that ship out and sell any authors books anymore. in the 1980"s I can see but not in 2018
...it worked just fine for me for many years....back in the day, they offered many older books that weren't easy to find and I was able to quickly build and catch up my collection...after that, they mailed out copies of each new novel as they came along....the price was much cheaper than retail-but the trade-off was having to wait several weeks past the delivery to stores....
