Redeems himself? That cover easily plants itelf on my "worst cover
ever" list, it's amazingly ugly, his _OB'sW_ cover is much nicer.
I think they should use Pennington's old Shadow of the Torturer
cover, it pictures almost the same scene, but is infinetly more
atmospherical and beautiful.
What's the difference between the UK hardcover text and the test in
the Orb edition?
Are all the titles in Millennium's Fantasy and SF Masterwork series
trade paperbacks? (There are generally three different sizes of
paperback's in the UK it seems, one is the size of a normal massmarket
paperback, one is the size of a normal hardcover and the last one is
somewhere in between. Are we talking about the hardcover sized type
