5.0 out of 5 stars Smokin' hot!!!!, 11 Nov 2001

This review is from: Smoking Poppy (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Love this author but the condition of the book was horrible. It was the colour of a smokers lungs and ripped on some pages. As it only cost 2.81 I threw it in the bin. I will be buying a new copy elsewhere.
