Covers of Russian Editions
These rather curious editions are published in Russia and the covers were sent to me by a very interesting and well-read correspondent called Galyna who is a fervent Lymond fan and regards him as very much a Russian style hero - despite not having yet had the opportunity to read Ringed Castle. They are in fact Game of Kings and Queens' Play split into four books, with the former called Game of Kings and Game of Queens and the latter called Game of Jokers and Game of Knights.
Since as far as I know Russia is not a signatory to the international laws on copyright I presume that these are what we would term pirated but it is amusing to hear that they have a copyright notice on them as follows.
The edition in Russian by Trading - publishing association
It is protected by the law on the copyright
German editions of Dolly
These were editions that I found amongst the books in the Dorothy's house when it was being cleared and I was struck by the completely innappropriate covers. Obviously someone in the marketing department was trying to make the JJs sexy!
