I'm reading this book now. I bought it some time ago when I was too young to understand it. But I've developed since then and now I find it hard to tear myself away from the beautifully crafted words of the master that is Gene Wolfe.

I love this cover here. Shame it isn't on my version here in the UK.

Thank you!

Szia! Áhh, amikor megláttam a könyvesboltban azt gondoltam: végre! egy feszes fekete fehér tusrajzos borító egy izgalmas, modern tipóval. (ebből a sorozatból ezt a könyvet láttam először) Méltó folytatásának gondolom a 60-as, 70-es évek könyvborítóinak -tán akkoriban jelentek meg ehhez hasonló munkák, utána sok borítót elleptek a montázsok.
Tiszteletem neked hogy megalkottad.
