    A UK Edition?  why?

    • Charlie Stross says:

      Because there are people who like to line their man-caves with dead trees.

      (And because Tor — the US publisher — doesn’t actually sell books in the UK. Tor UK is a different company, believe it or not.)

    I’ve always been a bit uncomfortable with the author’s (authors’?) name being larger than the actual name of the book, from a stylistic perspective. I suppose it makes sense – people will be attracted to the book based, largely, upon the known merits of the author. However, it just seems a bit jaded and cynical, at least to me .

    *EDIT*
    Looking at the cover again, I concede, the colouration and font choices allow the title to cut through background noise nicely.
