As is traditional, a year minus one day from the hardback publication of Silt Road, the paperbacks are here. They look great. The title is a zingier orange, the sub-title a zingier blue. On the back are a few of the very nice things some people wrote in the reviews. And inside I have managed to spell Humphry (as in Repton) correctly. Apart from that, the price and a floppier cover, it is exactly the same.
