This bugger has been through about 26 printings since it first reared its ugly head in 1996. And—sheesh—the cheapskates at Dover Publications haven’t bothered to update the original cover. This was the only book I ever sold in a flat (no royalties) deal, and what a mistake. They made a bundle despite practically giving it away. Well, at least with my updated cover design above the book has the originally intended title. (The editor thought he was being clever and called it Bewildering Beasties. Alliteration, get it?) I kept the colors kind of nauseating so it still looks like a Dover book—why mess with success?—but it’s available for reprint to the highest bidder.
On second thought make that the highest blogger.
