I am struggling with a defence on this one, but as a description of an illustration it is not part of the core text, which has safeguards hopefully to stop changes like this happening.

Why it was changed is quite a mystery as it was correct in the first place?

I have informed HarperCollins of the error and hope it is rectified as soon as possible, they have responded and they are aware of the issue and investigating how it happened!


Yeah, I emailed as well when I saw it, but I suspect my emails just get filed to trash, so I should probably just leave it to you...!

Probably. Any excuse, these days...


A Super Deluxe version of The Sil to match CoH and S&G.


I'd most likely be interested in that. Not sure HC would necessarily want to go back to SD territory at the moment, though. I don't think there are enough buyers at the price point they would want to pitch it at.

Maybe because people tend to think of paperbacks as being monochrome, so they are driving home that it is in colour? Just a guess, but can't see it being anything more than that.
