Is there a third cover for Beyond All Frontiers? I don't think either of these are the one I read, since I don't get any feeling of deja vu when looking at them. :) The edition of Forget the Glory on Fantasticfiction did trigger deja vu, so that must've been the one I read.

Let us know how you like the books, Misfit!

Thanks Annis. Those two editions weren't even in the Goodreads library. I've added them.

I did find one poor quality of the Beyond All Frontiers at Amazon and put it up at Goodreads if you need to swipe a portion to replace the ##@@!! library sticker.

Thanks, already have the jacket blurbs up at Goodreads.


Done and done :)
The cover from amazon was a good idea thanks ;)

Thank you for doing that. I do like seeing covers. I don't do it on Amazon anymore because some troll hits my lists and images with negative votes. Doesn't affect ranking but it does affect my approval percentage so I've stopped until Ammy fixes it :mad:

Beyond All Frontiers was also published under the Elizabeth Darrell name, with this cover. Maybe you read that version, Michy?

There's a list of ED books here with synopses and some cover images.

Thanks Annis. I have Scarlet Shadows coming via PBS. I have found three covers for Beyond All Frontiers under the Drummond name. They're on my PC at home so I can't post until later.

No lie. At least I've lost (or Ammy has corralled) the person who was instantly hitting every new review with negatives. I wasn't the only victim of that either.

A couple of other covers attached. Which one was your's?

I think maybe it was the first one you posted, after all. All I'm certain of is that there weren't any people on the cover, and that's the only one without people. For some reason I thought the picture was more mountainous and I don't remember there being water lilies, but then it's been a long time. :o

How are you liking the book? I don't even remember the characters or much about it.
