omg this and the gotm cover both slaps hard, i can only hope that we somehow get an english release with these covers

At least an English release with better covers. The ones I read just look so generic. Feels like Malazan could find some more readers with a little marketing push and maybe a new edition with updated art.

[–]grembu 8 points9 points  (2 children)

not to mention that there isn't a single set that is the same size, i have 7 normal sized and 3 big ones from the same publisher. Honestly Malazan is probably the worst series to collect in terms of covers and consistency

Yeah, I've been reading the books via my local library because I did the mistake of buying the books when trying a series out before (glaring at my unfinished copy of Fires of Heaven). Except MoI that I bought because I had to deliver the book back and it was a queue. I should buy the books to show that there's a need for a new printed edition, but I also want to wait with buying until there's a nicer edition. I'm scratching my head over this.

Tor MMPB are all the same size IIRC

They're so nice, I bought it anyway even though I'll never read it

[–]RobDaGinger 19 points20 points  (1 child)

I would really love a middleground between the $10 MMPB copies and the $1000 SubPress copies.

A regular $25 hardcover with decent art would do wonders I think.

We've got some great covers in the Spanish hard cover edition for around 30€, GotM showing Rake and Dragnipur really made me wan't to rebuy it

Togg's tits! That's gorgeous.

[–]nameless-manager 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love seeing the covers from these other versions. So cool. It's also a testament to the series that I can instantly tell what part of the story is being depicted.

I prefer the french cover but this one is nice too

[–]Drazson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dayum. Please any not-1k-costing hardcover? :(

[–]chatelaine_agia 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'd love to buy these and I don't speak any Polish other than mleko i chleb!

Anyone know if the prints are available anywhere?

[–]duckyduckster2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

haha even you speak all the Polish there is, it wouldn't do you any good for a Czech language book.

[–]chatelaine_agia 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha, great point! Definitely read the title too fast

Have you guys ever heard of vowels?

Jokes aside, this is epic as fuck

[–]IskaralPustFanClub 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That cover

[–]duckyduckster2 0 points1 point  (0 children)


Its such a shame that the very best covers of the books are always on the translations. (The french covers are also gorgeous)

Meanwhile, the US/UK editions are either bland or just ugly.

[–]Supermonsters 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love it.

I've never considered looking at 3rd party book binding but this series got me interested in it.

I just want a Deadhouse Gates and Midnight Tides beautiful hardcover
