For those of you who have not yet heard, we are continuing Brain Craig's Orfeo trilogy as part of the Oldhammer Bookclub. After the success of the first novel, we decided to continue through the sequence and finish Orfeo's tale.
Now Plague Daemon was originally advertised as Ystareth, so suffered a name change somewhere along the way. The internal illustrations also changed tack, with character portraits replacing scenes from the story inside the book. I only discovered this when I got my hands on a first edition a few years back. My first encounter with the story was the Boxtree Edition in about 1999 - when I found a copy of the book in a library sale.
Here's the front cover (below) to that edition if you are going to hunt for a copy yourself.
Beware of the Black Library reprints as they were edited and as an Oldhammerer you may well prefer the tale as Brain Craig originally intended it. Chaos remains the central theme and this story is a little more action packed than Zaragoz was.
I hope you can join us!
Shall we leave it until the end of September to get hold of the book and read through it?
