Dark Puss

Two of the covers I hate and the other one is rather twee so I'm not voting for any of them. I hope the book is considerably superior to the packaging.

Mary (across the Pond)

I don't particularly like any of them either...though not quite hating them as much as Dark Puss. However, I do agree with his 'twee' statement on the last one.


What interests me is that there is an obvious difference in style between US and UK jackets generally - as this example shows.

Dark Puss

We are very different peoples in very different countries.

Mary (over the Pond)

True, but then I grew up in the UK with a British mother and a U.S. father. Neither fish nor fowl (apologies to John Heywood).

Fan of the Cat

Off topic and personal message for the Cat - sorry for this, Mrs. Cornflower.

Hello, Dark Puss, I was trying to write a comment on your weblog but the comment page was clear and I only got the following message:

Sorry, the browser you are using is not currently supported. Disqus actively supports the following browsers:
Internet Explorer 8, 9 or 10 (troubleshoot)

Did you change something on your weblog or is it my own laptop? What can I do?
Thank you for your answer. I am missing my favourite Cat now, happy Easter week end to you anyway!
Your fan forever

Dark Puss

Disqus changed (not my doing!) very recently. I'll see if I have any problems myself, or any answers.

Very best wishes, Morgana's Cat

Dark Puss

It works with Firefox V11, latest Chrome and IE8. However IE8 seemed to want to go into "compatability" mode with Tumblr on first page access and at that point the new Disqus won't work and you'll get to see the little warning message box.

Hope that helps you dear "fan".
