OUTLANDER 20th Anniversary Edition
I found out today that the special 20th Anniversary hardcover edition of OUTLANDER is now available for pre-order on Amazon. Release date is July 5, 2011.
I think the cover is beautiful, especially the "textured" look of the background.
There's a thread on Compuserve here if you have questions or comments for Diana about this special edition.
Thanks to oorjanie on LOL for the heads-up!
UPDATE 1/16/2011 3:30 PM: Diana provided some more details about the special edition today on Compuserve:
I think the 20th-anniversary edition will be Very Cool. Let's see...in addition to the text <g>
, it will include (at least at last discussion) a Letter from me (not that I think _that's_ very cool, but they asked for it), and a very luxurious back-matter section, containing a) a map of the locations in OUTLANDER (a more accurate one than the one from the COMPANION), b) a timeline of historical and fictional events, c) the bibliography from the COMPANION, d) something else I forget from the COMPANION, e) an essay by me on "The Shape of Things," which is all about how I write this stuff. Oh--and a "sampler" CD from OUTLANDER:The Musical, including three songs from the regular CD and one "bonus" song from the complete libretto that _isn't_ on the regular CD.
The whole thing to be bound not only in hardcover, but in a rather cool faux-leather binding _and_ slipcase, with a ribbon bookmarker.
