    Well, stylistic criticisms aside, I loved it for the story, the way it was told and how it brought many previous facets together. I also hated it as the last (?) of the EC novels.

    At least we have the remaining Making of a Sorcerer issues to look forward to…

    Thank you Mike.

          In the interest of returning this thread back to The White Wolf's Son, although not a spoiler--

          Has it met Warner's expectations? It seems to be selling pretty well on Amazon, with a respectable sales rank the last time I looked. Just curious...

            I still find it sad that Mike seems to struggle to find a British publisher that respects both him and his work. I hope that the success of this last trilogy will help remedy that. Of course, the forthcoming movie will no doubt generate interest, but I hope we see something better than the usual kind of movie tie-ins.

            As has been discussed on other threads, a new series of books along the lines of Wandering Star's Robert E. Howard editions would be most welcome.

              But hopefully a bit cheaper - and if they do a mass market paperback edition, without curly covers!! :roll:

                  As opposed to the Moe and Larry covers presumably. :?

                    Yes! The Del Ray paperbacks - Wandering Star publish just the hardbacks - do have covers that curl outwards. Some U.S. phenomenon? (Although Bran Mak Morn seems free of this problem... so far.)

                      Multiverse had the same problem, I recall.
                      I can't see the difference between Conan #2 and Multiverse (both curly) and BMM (non-curly)... and you'll understand that I don't want to tear the covers to determine which way the grain runs...

                      But, my goodness, you can learn stuff on this site!

                        The laminate starts to peel off the covers as well. :x When so much effort has been put producing into the 'definitive' edition of a classic at a price mere proles can afford, it's a shame they can't get these things right.

                          Thanks... I've just checked by oldest copy, Conan #1, and, yes, the laminate is crinkling up along the edges of front an back covers...

                          Anyone know how to fix that? (Short of re-covering the whole thing with clear sticky-backed plastic.)

                          You'd think the likes of Del Rey would know how to make durable paperbacks by now! (Maybe I should save up for the Wandering Star hardbacks... ?)

                          Cheers,

                            Funnily enough, that's exactly what I did :oops: - So now it looks like a school textbook!

                            Perhaps that's the evil masterplan... :twisted:
