From the stunning cover art:
To the internal illustrations:
This book is flawless. Needless to say, I have pre-ordered the Subterranean Press version of Deadhouse Gates as well, and now plan to collect all of them. It is the first time I have lusted over a special edition, but, if it were to be any novels, it would be these - they hold an incredibly special place in my heart.
The other three books that I purchased yesterday are a trilogy - one that I already own. This sounds a little silly, non? But let me explain... This is a case of cover art ABSOLUTELY doing the job it is meant to do.
I own the following three novels:
These three covers are okay - fairly pretty, fairly generic fantasy.
I had IMMEDIATE book lust when I spotted the covers that Gollancz had commissioned for the trilogy on its re-release in the UK. Check these out.....
Simply gorgeous, aren't they?
So I re-purchased three books I already owned to get them in the same format and showing such lush covers.
A sickness or completely understandable?
