Have you ever really loved a book design for the hardcover of a book, and then had an "Oh my god, what were they thinking?" moment when the paperback comes out dressed in something far less satisfying? Disappointing isn't it? But today was not one of those days. The paperback of The Manual of Detection comes out this month, and a copy arrived in my mail slot today. And it is most satisfying as was its hardcover parent.
Do you have a hardcover to paperback happy ending? Or tale of the tragic stepchild?
