|The softcover, just released (2011).|
|The 2010 hardcover.|
A couple of days ago we enjoyed describing the new Billy Boyle World War II mystery from James R. Benn, A Mortal Terror. As Soho Crime released this 2011 title, the press also brought its predecessor, RAG AND BONE, into a softcover edition. Check our writeup on that title here -- and meanwhile, consider the drastic shift in cover design for the two versions, hard and soft. I'd love to hear some thoughts on the effects of the covers.
