Good News for Old Blighty

My friends at Harper Collins Voyager have confirmed that the British edition of A DANCE WITH DRAGONS will also be released on July 12 of this year, simultaneously with the American edition.

(Please ignore what it says on Amazon.UK. I am sure they will get it right eventually)

Here's the British cover:



Publication dates in other countries will, of course, be dependent on the speed of the translations. Which cannot begin until I turn in the final manuscript. So I had best get back to that right now.

Cheers.

Re: I probably shouldn't say this
Oh, we did it (i actually sent a list) and they are printing a new edition right now, so hopefully they'll fix the most evident mistakes.

Maybe i didn't explain myself about the stag thing. Stag IS translated as "stag", but in the very beginning of AGOT, there is a dead direwoolf with an unicorn's horn in the throat... maybe they though it was "more fantasy" that way, i don't know. You still enjoy the reading, but you miss a good foreshadowing.

The italian translator is not that bad, after all, he just changes the books a while, adding whole sentences, changing details, - it's not a big deal, just details like that stag, or the tullys hair color etc. It's okay if you are not a fan... but fans just don't like it. I mean, we need those details for our unlikely theories :)


PS:I love that picture!!
