Seems to be a special edition to celebrate the top 50 Sci-Fi books by Gollancz. I don't think I'll bother. :D

Yep seems like that Tony according to their site:

Gollancz 50th Top 10 as chosen by you! The Top 10 titles have all been beautifully repackaged in cool retro editions that follow the classic Gollancz yellow jacket style. They've got brand new introductions from outstanding top genre authors; Joe Abercrombie, Stephen Baxter, Stephen Deas, Peter F. Hamilton, Paul McAuley, Richard Morgan, Alastair Reynolds, Adam Roberts, Justina Robson and Chris Wooding. How better could we celebrate our 50th Anniversary?!

Look for all of our Top 10 titles from 1st September where all good books are sold.


So on top of two board games coming out next month, Snuff a month later (2 versions) and calendar I have this to add to my collection, don't think the bank manager will be happy though :shock:

But I WANT it in BLACK to go with my other black covers!
(sigh) I'll just wait for the paperback to come out for the black cover and I'll hopefully get the hard back 'thumbed' by Sir pT in Ireland, if not Birmingham.

When I was really bad with depression, I walked into Waterstones in Basingstoke and brought ten black covered Pratchetts. The woman at the till nearly choked! I was the customer I was paying and points went onto my waterstones card, hyuk hyuk hyuk! After that it was buying them in twos and threes.
Now I just wander round Waterswtones with the occsional, 'ooh I'm looking form that one!'
York Waterstones know me now! :lol:
