PotB APE???
« on: April 14, 2005, 04:14:05 AM »

Hello All.
Ok here's the deal.
I live in the States, and there is probably a snowballs chance in hell of this book being published here (as far as I can see) (If I missed its release, i'll be shocked)
So the Question is, what's up with it??

What is different.
I know with Magician APE, good stuff was added.
How's about this one??

Someone drop me a reply, I'm curious.

P.S.  If this has already been addressed, my apologies, but I didn't see it here.
Thanks!!!

It was released as a HB edition in the states. I haven't got a copy yet, but I hear it's meant to be good.

Here's a link to purchase it (via the hall) Amazon

I'm not sure of the details of what was added / removed / changed as I haven't read the new edition yet..
Basically Ray said he was never happy with the book as a whole, and it was re-written to be the book he would have wanted it to be.
Hopefully someone's read it and can comment on some differences....

i think for the main part of the book it was only minor things that changed, but the ending is very different from my memory

Its out in the US in HB and Pb soon i think. Not a great deal has changed only about 10,000 words. The ending has the biggest change as there is more fighting and less detective work. Also there is a lot more references to stuff in the Krondor books.
