Tastes differ; and compare the Millennium cover art to
the Sword & Sorcery bilge on the Orb cover!

As for the Millennium text and format: the hardcover
text they've reprinted is of a much more readable size
than that of the Orb edition, which was reduced to a
painfully small dimension to minimise the number of
pages, I suppose; and the format is B, the one between
mass market paperback and hardcover. And all the
Fantasy Masterworks will be in B format: already out
is TIME AND THE GODS by Lord Dunsany, an omnibus of
six early collections; and in April there's Eddison's
Jack Vance, an omnibus of all four Dying Earth volumes.
