Final Copies

They finally arrived, City of Ruin and the new UK paperback of Nights of Villjamur. People have been saying, on Twitter, how pretty the artwork is on the new hardcover, and I certainly agree – also, it’s nice to see a gay albino on covers these days, isn’t it? Behold the greatness of Tor UK:

And what’s this? For those of you with a cartographic fetish, it is an actual, real map.

About Mark Newton

Born in 1981, live in the UK. I write about strange things.


  1. He doesn’t look very albino though, does he? Looks a little like Sepheiroth(sp?) actually with the hair.

    But the paperback cover model definatly looks like how I pictured the islander dance/sword instructor… I forget his name at the moment.

  2. I am positive you are one happy camper with all these beauties at your side.

  3. I’m not sure whether I have a cartographic fetish or not but I really appreciate to get a map of Villiren.

  4. There’s definitely a touch of the Final Fantasy about this picture, which is no bad thing to me.

    Harry – indeed I am!

    ediFanoB – it’s a lovely map! It was turned, by clever Tor UK magic, from my scruffy sketches in my notebook into something half decent. Amazing to see the final picture.

  5. They are gorgeous but I still quite like the alternate version. ;p
