New UK covers!

Emily, a fellow Mary Stewart fan, let me know about these beautiful new editions that Hodder is publishing in the UK in March. Oooooh, LOVE! The illustrations are great -- especially because the women are wearing such fabulous clothes and looking as posh and capable as any Mary Stewart heroine should.

If I had the money, I'd buy the whole set! You can get them on Amazon UK.

I like the idea, but they look like Katie Fforde covers. (Who is not to be reviled)

Lovely covers.

Don't know if this has been mentioned on the blog before, but I just came across this interview:

Oh, I like very much!

Of course, they would have to re-released AFTER I had completed by Mary Stewart collection.

Ooh fabulous! But will they be available in Waterstones and the like (I shall e mail them and find out!) so that new readers can discover her?

Just discovered your blog and was thrilled to find more MS fans!
I have loved her books since I was a teen and have all but "The Wind off the Small Isles"
I surely hope they reissue that one too!

I'm hosting a Mary Stewart giveaway on my blog along with Hodder. Readers just need to leave a comment saying which Stewart novel they'd like and why; two commenters will get the Stewart of their choice.

I'd love it if you could post the giveaway on your site; thanks!

Great website!
My sisters and I have been great fans since our teens.

My sis and I absolutely adore Mary Stewart! And we started snapping up the books with these covers once they started coming out:) They seem mysterious and chick-litty at the same time, and for some reason that really does it for me:)

Btw, if you want to read a review of 'This Rough Magic', pls feel free to see my post: http://isabellaamaris.blogspot.com/2011/07/this-rough-magic-by-mary-stewart-book.html

Sadly, it's the only review I've done of Stewart's books so far, but this book was the first of hers that I read, so it's no surprise that I still love it so much.

Hmmm, I'm so glad I found this blog! I shall be visiting often. Cheers, and will return soon:)

If anyone wants to buy these new editions, The Book People (Google that name) is selling ten for £9.99

Even if you only wanted a couple, it's still worth it.

I noticed the name "Griffin" on some of the covers of Fawcett Crest books and was curious about this artist. I think it was Rick Griffin, who became well known especially for Grateful Dead album covers and concert posters. None of the biographies I found online mention Stewart books, but an ad for a Phyllis Whitney book claims to have a Rick Griffin cover. The signature and style are the same as on the Stewart covers. By the way, my Stewart covers have yet to be posted!

I'm a new Mary Stewart fan - I read Nine Coaches Waiting and enjoyed it so much that I bought three of her other books (The Moonspinners, The Ivy Tree and Madam, Will You Talk?) all in these lovely UK editions. I'm looking forward to reading these! I want to collect all of these books - just 9 more to go until I have the entire set. :) So glad our local bookstore here in the Philippines carry these titles.

"Thornyhold" and "The Stormy Petrel" were great novels which I reread. Both are very compelling.

These are some nice-looking covers! They also seem to suggest a peculiar sort of fashion sense: 19th century fashion cast onto day glo modern colors. Someone's probably gonna go and bring that into real life as a brand, since there are more accessible venues for getting a trademark nowadays.

Oh no! Hate the new covers. Loved the old covers with the misty landscapes. I have a few of them (to replace old copies that have fallen apart)but must try and get the set before they disappear.
