My favourite A/B-class story is how Transworld Bantam suddenly switched to the B-class for the paperbacks of the Malazan Book of the Fallen with Book 8 of the series. However, because the format is apparently unacceptable in Canada, their international mmpb editions of the book had to remain in A-class. This has led to Malazan fans demanding bookshelf continuity ordering the British paperbacks from Canada to keep things the same.
What's even odder is that Bantam haven't yet switched the rest of the series over, so if you're buying the series new in the UK, Books 1-7 are still in A-class and 8-9 (and presumably 10 in a couple of months) are in B-class, causing much confusion.
I did notice that, Adam. Well, as much as one can notice it in Waterstone's when they have about three of them
Harper Voyager did it with the reissue of ASoIaF, I think. The tie-in edition of AGoT is B format, I think the rest are A.
BTW really like the book so far. At this point I find it better then alot of the mainstays around here like Abercrombie, Sanderson, Weeks, though I do have alot to read still.
Sadly, there isn't a canadian edition that I could get to match my six books...
Might be remedied in the future, though, we'll have to wait and see.
I've been getting them directly from BD. It's a series that I'm just not going to wait around for, plus I already have the first 6 in the Tor covers, so....
I have ordered the first six books of this series from Book Depository. I want to order HEIRS OF THE BLADE from BD, but, at the moment, the book is unavailable. Does anyone know the reason it is unavailable there, but the book is available through Amazon.co.uk.
I live in the United States, and I really do not want to order from Amazon.co.uk because I would also have to pay for shipping.
There's something more, I don't know epic and sweeping, about Dragonfly Falling than I felt was present in Empire in Black and Gold. Even though I'm only reading in rather short clips, Tchaikovsky is maintaining that grand, sweeping feel to the story.
So, i am now reading Dragonfly falling... and i must say, Totho is breaking my heart.
does anyone wonder if there are any kinden underground. looking at the other places you could find them [the sea watch], one wonders where the earthworm kinden are.
also, in the cities of the nem, whipspider kinden?
