    Looking at those early covers for the first two Kencyrath books… I’m so happy I found them in the UK collection first ^^, and I can even reconcile myself to the current BAEN incarnation.

    And YAY for The Women of Nell Gwynne‘s! I became a Hugo voter just to get that novella in ebook format ^^.
