New cover for Renegade’s Magic?
10 May, 2008 filed under: Robin Hobb, England/UK
Thanks to Lucide for reminding me about this: Voyager is going to publish a paperback edition of Renegade’s Magic the first of July (details). The cover they have posted features the image of Orandula we’ve seen on Jackie Morris’ site. But did they just change the illustrator in the middle of the paperback series, or will there be one with John Howe’s cover as well? (We’ve already seen the hardback and the “large format” mass market paperback with his art for RM.) what do you think? Drop by at the forums and let us know!
