    misery chastain loves co. MORE Count Chocula please.....

    I like them both but I'll have to give the UK one the edge. Another example of a better UK cover IMHO. Sigh. Which means I'll have to have one of course.

    I like the UK version. That's the one I ordered from Book Depository.
    Looking forward to seeing which of the four random hidden-on-the-board variants I get.

    My special limited edition from Waterstone's. Limited to 250 copies, slipcase but no dust jacket. The picture has a beautiful shimmer to it that the ordinary hardcover with dust jacket doesn't have.

    Signed by both authors, too. IMG_20170926_1039482_rewind2.jpg

    Despite my grumblings of them cashing in on collectors, I ended up with a blue snake, purple fox and the peacock :a11:
