New UK editions

Post by Tanzanite » Wed February 2nd, 2011, 4:02 pm

Harper is reissuing Gregory's Tudor novels in March with new covers. Now instead of "headless women", we'll have "floating heads".

(The Constant Princess is included, but no cover yet; TOBG doesn't seem to part of it though).

That's interesting because Harper are no longer the publishers of her new material where the contract belongs to Simon & Schuster. |Obviously Harper are still milking the backlist.

Oh, I love them! Floating heads of 1950s models in Tudor gear.
That lady on The Queen's Fool is right out of "Leave it to Bloody Mary."

Ahh I did prefer the old covers, they were the best thing about Gregory's books. But it's lovely to see women with heads :p

I prefer the old covers too, this lot look like stern school marms! The one on the cover of QF reminds me a bit of Grace Kelly.
