Hi cam87 :)

Sorry to have to say that I don't think you'll be successful - according to previous discussions we've had on this subject, Eric was published by a different publisher to the rest of the books, so there is no black cover edition.

Have fun collecting the rest though :wink:

What Dotsie said.

The annoying thing is that you can get the audiobook of Eric with 'black' covers. :?

You are not alone in wanting Eric in black covers as you can see HERE.

Maybe you need to badger Terry's publishers and see what they say. :D

Not a problem. :) I don't know what the 'official' name for the covers is - the seem to have become 'the black covers' by default.

As to buying the books online - you could probably get them all direct from Transworld, Terry's publishers. Just put 'Pratchett' into the search and you should get them all. :wink:

thanks tony :)

i have just been looking at a thread from 2009 on here about being unable to find monstrous regiment and going postal in black cover and transworld doesnt seem to list either on their site.
I have managed to order a copy of going postal in black cover from waterstones website but they say it takes 3-5 days to get, so i may recieve an email in a few days saying they cannot obtain it. Has monstrous regiment been released yet?

cheers

This seems to be a tricky one - I've seen pictures of the black cover Monstrous Regiment as you can see HERE, but so far I've only seen it for sale on an Australian site.

One of the later posts on the thread I linked to seems to suggest that MR hasn't been released yet in these covers - but probably will eventually. :?

So the simple answer is - I don't know. :oops:

However - I have just written an email to Transworld to try and get a definitive reply to this question. I'll post the response if and when I get one. :)

I had a reply to my enquiry from Lynsey, the Press Officer at Transworld. :)

Hi Tony,



Thank you for your enquiry I hope you are well.



Regarding the black editions – Night Watch, Monstrous Regiment, Going Postal and Making Money will all appear in the black cover style. I don’t have a definite publication date for these but hopefully it will be next year. Unfortunately Eric was not published by Transworld and we therefore do not have the rights to publish it in the black edition.



I hope that clears everything up.



Best wishes,



Lynsey
