That’s the second edition, the one edited by Daniel Hahn. It is now available in paperback, two years after the hardback. And whereas the hardback is lovely, you can’t escape the fact that a paperback is a lot easier to hold and to work with, make notes in and generally beat up.
Which, I will obviously never do. The beating, I mean.
There are some few changes, but only what has happened in the two years, like authors dying, new award winners, plus anything else major we need to know about.
As I indicated two years ago, I didn’t feel I could get rid of my old first edition, so the two are standing side by side.
And this one… Well, it could be considered overkill to add it to the same shelf as the other two. Luckily I have a second Bookwitch office, so I have just the place to keep this new paperback! A witch has to be able to look things up, whenever and wherever she may be.
