Peephole In My Skull

Der große Basar

In addition to the t-shirts I mentioned in the last post, the Messenger today brought another something very special, my sample copies of Der große Basar, the German translation/extended edition of The Great Bazaar.

Der große Basar isn’t just a translation of the US edition, though. It really is unique. In addition to another beautiful cover painting, the German edition has a bunch of all-new  illustrations, including a gorgeous fold-out map of Fort Krasia, The Desert Spear:

Der große Basar also includes Brayan’s Gold, an all-new Arlen Messenger novella exclusive to the German edition. This story isn’t even being published in English, the language it was written in, until later this year! It’s a German worldwide exclusive, at least for the next few months.

  2. That’s is a thing of beauty Peat! Enough to make me wish I could read German….

    The cover and the fold-out map [hehehe @cmi] are really nice, I’m happy for you!

  4. Where can I get a copy of the German book in the US? I’ve already read the Warded Man in English and German, haven’t read this one yet and I love keeping my German up by reading great books!
