All mine are paperbacks with the unfortunate covers. i would like to grab those special Hardcovers though, the ones with the black covers. at the very least i'd like to get Nightwatch with the Egg.

And boo to not putting out the full illustrated versions of Eric and the last hero here. now i have to rebuy them.

Quite possibly its a collection of prepublished stories brought together .
Terrys had a few and most of us can't afford a copy of Once More With Footnotes

Just had this email from Transworld, looks like the States gets it a couple of days before us.

THE LONG EARTH - COVER REVEAL

The possibilities are endless (just be careful what you wish for...)

The (95% completed) cover artwork for the upcoming novel The Long Earth has been revealed!

Terry Pratchett and science fiction giant Stephen Baxter are combining forces to write this first novel in an astonishing, mind-bending new series. Read the synopsis here.

The Long Earth will be published in the UK on 21st June 2012 and 19th June 2012 in the US.
'Like' Terry Pratchett on Facebook to be the first to hear further details about this novel as we reveal much more over the coming months leading up to publication.

Good Omens to be a World Book Night Title

Good Omens has been named as one of the 25 titles that will be given away on World Book Night in 2012.

The novel, which was co-written by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman and originally published in 1990, joins an exciting and diverse list that includes classics, contemporary favourites, international bestsellers and prize-winners.

For more information visit the World Book Night website.

I hope A blink on the screen has the older DW shorts. it'd be nice to have them all in print and in one place. (possibly with intros etc by terry.)
