I ordered my books from adlibris (an online bookstore for the scandinavian countries).

I got Monstrous Regiment, Going Postal, Making Money, Unseen Academicals and I Shall Wear Midnight in the first package, which arrived at my home mid-october. Night watch was delivered a few days ago along with Good Omens.

Amazing Maurice, Wee Free Men, Hat Full of Sky, Thud and Wintersmith have also been released in black cover. Dont know if the tiffany aching books and Maurice is still available --- i'm glad that i ordered them as soon as they were released via amazon.

Yesterday I ordered Nation at Waterstones online store. so i now have all the main books etc in the black cover versions.

Welcome Winther if I haven't said so before. Never realised Maurice was black cover too! If only they did ERIC in black I'd be a happy bunny!

I went into Waterstones on line store to order The Amazing Maurice in the black cover. They wanted £25+ for it! :shock:

It only costs £7.99!!!!

I went into Amazon and as long as I can wait for 5-8 weeks I can get it for £7.19 prime delivery i,e, free postage.

Large difference in price!

on the subject of Eric not having a black cover, it appears as though the audio book does have its own design!!

Yah, unfortunately transworld don't own the rights to Eric and so can't publish a black cover version. However they do seem to own the audio book rights.

It would be good if Transworld would sort it so they could produce it in Black and the same with the Last Hero as it would look sweat to have them all in the same cover. :)

Hello,
I only discovered Pratchett novels and the Discworld a few months ago...
I'm about half way through and collecting the black covers, you've answered my Eric question, it was driving me mad that I could find it black cover in audio but not paperback :evil: . I bought the Gollancz top ten collection from the BookPeople in the end.
Does anyone know when the black cover of Snuff is out?
P.S. I've never joined a forum before, so feel free to give me guidance!

Hi moreteaplease welcome to the forum.
The Paperback is out 7th June but that is not black one I don't think, unless it's published at the same time.

Hi :) I've just emailed Transworld to see if I can get any sense out of them. I'm being really fussy and just getting the black covers... I asked them about The Last Hero too, cos I figure if Gollancz can do an unillustrated version of Eric then why can't transworld do one of The Last Hero??.. Hum de hum, time will tell.

Welcome to the site, moreteaplease! :D

Transworld is your best bet for the answer I think. Let us know what they say.

We were all new to forums once and we like to think this one is more newbie friendly than some. If in doubt - ask. ;)

Have read all the posts on this thread, just wondering if anyone
else noticed that the Discworld series novels slated as
"for young readers" in the black cover editions are missing
the edition numbers on the back covers?

For example "The Amazing Maurice..." in the black cover edition
has no number 28 on the back cover, and "A Hat Full of Sky"
missing number 32, while all the other "black covers"
that I own clearly have the numbers in the
bottom left or bottom right corner of the back cover.

Does anyone know why that is?

Also, as for why anyone would like the black covers, the black covers were
the only ones available in the local bookshop when I started reading them,
now there are other styles of covers, but I like keeping them the same :)

(I must admit to having doubles in other covers though)
