Audio books are in the future

Ray just posted the following:-

For those who have asked over the years why only some titles are available on audio, I'm pleased to report we've reached a deal with HarperCollins to do them all.  I have NO idea what the schedule of release dates and the like will be, so don't ask.

Best, R.E.F.

UK Tour, less than a week away

With the UK tour starting in less than a week, start pulling out the books your plan to take with you.

And don't forget to check your travel plans, especially for Forbidden Planet on the 6th - Bank Holiday Monday. Remember the Railways like to do maintainece on lines on Bank Holidays, so often put busses on in the place of the trains, and they move a lot slower, so if you have to leave earlier.

It's always a good idea to contact the store beforehand, to check if there have been any changes to times etc. You don't want to miss your chance to see Ray.

 

A hint on preparing your books for signing. If they have any value, carefully pack them, and consider removing the dustjacket, so it can't get damaged. Maybe even put your own paper cover over the book to protct it in place of the jacket. In general, Ray signs the title page, so you could consider a simple paper bookmark to the page, to speed up opening to the correct place for signing, this can be very useful if you have several books you would like signed. Ray normally signs 3 books and asks you join the back of the queue for a second pass, this should allow everyone to get something signed if time is limited, though this may change based on the level of attendance.

 

Above all, it is good manners to purchase the current book at the store holding the signing, it gives them reason to ask for Ray again in the future.

UK / Australia Young Adults Edition

In with the many releases and re-releases taking place we now have a Young Adults version of Magician and Silverthorn due for release in the UK and Australia in April 2013.

With a nice traditional fantasy cover, us "oldies" seem to be missing out. They say, don't judge a book by it's cover but we were kids once and still do Smile. The Young Adults version of Magician surprisingly has 681 pages, the same as the traditional paperback, you have to wonder at the "Young Adult" part, does this mean its full of "text speak" and "icons"... You will have to wait like myself to find out, but for now here are the covers.

Geoff Taylor creates Custom Covers

As many of our visitors will know, Geoff Taylor created the artwork for several of the earlier covers used on the books of Raymond E. Feist, in the UK and Australia. The same art has also found its way to covers for other countries, and even books by different authors. In addition to this, he has also created covers for multitudes of other authors, some of which has found its place on the cover of a Feist book in another country.

Recently he was privately commissioned to create his own interpretation from some the books, without the restrictions from the book publishing industry.  

Below is a one of those interpretations, in this case for Faerie Tale. Please Note it has not been used on a book.

To see more visit Geoff's own website, GeoffTaylor-Artist, where you will find over 400 cover paintings and 800 illustrations. For the custom cover art, look in the Galleries.
