Final Thunstone Art
The latest email from Haffner Press features the finished cover art by Raymond Swanland for the upcoming The Complete John Thunstone. I posted the cover rough a few weeks back. Looks really nice, says I.
It's funny how much I'm looking forward to this book, since I already own all the material inside. I think it's just because I'm happy to see Manly Wade Wellman's name on a new book cover and because this means that new readers will have a chance to discover Wellman's fiction. At a mere forty bucks for all the Thunstone short stories and both novels, this is a seriously good deal. Plus, I've bought enough books from Haffner Press to know how well made their books are. In fact, I was thinking this morning that Haffner would be a great publisher to reprint Karl Edward Wagner's Kane stories, which are sadly in need of being reprinted. An affordable, quality set of Kane would be a boon to fantasy readers everywhere.
