I'm puzzled by this. Rob is saying that they're 'hugely excited about the stunning new covers', but it's impossible to see any details about the new covers on Discworld.com. :confused:

You can see the covers much better on Discworld Emporium. For instance: Equal Rites (New Edition)! :) Now I see what Rob means! :)

Book of the Month

Good Omens

"Pratchett’s wackiness collaborates with Gaiman’s morbid humour; the result is a humanist delight to be savoured and read again and again."
