AGE OF MISRULE: BOOK 1 / Collectors' Item!

Well, there’s good news, and then there's even better news for fantasy lovers and book collectors everywhere. First, the most exciting news -- the AGE OF MISRULE is finally here in the US. Mark Chadbourn’s AGE OF MISRULE: BOOK ONE / WORLD’S END is back from the printer and it looks gorgeous. This is the stateside debut of Chadbourn’s long-awaited MISRULE novels, and it’s a stunning, epic read. The book will be available by May.

Here's the even better news for all first-edition book collectors — you’ll definitely want to grab your copy of this one right away. Why? According to word from Pyr this week, the printer forgot to place the Pyr logo on the spine of the book. Not the end of the world since Pyr's logo is on the back and inside, and this error will be corrected for the second printing of the book. In the meantime, this is the kind of thing that collectors and Ebayists live for. According to Pyr, orders were already fast and furious for AGE OF MISRULE before this happened. So, go get 'em before they're all gone, book collectors — they won't last long before they end up on Ebay. :)

Thanks, Christine! :)
I'm working to make the cover for Book 3 even better. Will have that one soon. The cover for Book 2 is all done and Pyr's already sent that off to the printer.

Just got my Collector's Edition! No Pyr logo on the spine!

I am very impressed - the cover turned out darker than the computer image, so it's more of a dark green than a bright grass green. Yay!

You're right....the printing did deepen the green a bit.
Glad you like it, Christine! :)

Just an update.. I work for the printer who produces the prometheus books, and while I am not responsible for the logo error on the first print, I can confirm that the logo is in it's rightful place on the second printing. So grab what you can of the first edition because the corrected reprint is going to press.
