It’s a disrespect to Leonard’s work and the Spanish fans the fact that the book has a different cover without the beautiful drawing of the international edition and, specially, that has been published in paperback and not in hardcover as it deserves. It’s a shame also that the edition and translation has been made by someone that can barely understand English and makes a living mistreating his work. Unfortunately we’re all used to it here in Spain.

Sorry to hear that, if my Spanish was any good I would be tempted to buy the book just to see what was made of the translation. :lol: And yes, your right, they should have the same cover worldwide!

Hi, Valentin,
the German edition, too, has a different cover: totally black with Leonard´s name in white and "Die Flamme" in red-looks really depressing. Thank God, it´s bilingual, the German translation next to the English original. The texts were translated by 12 different people, so some are very good, some terrible.
Translations are always problematic, so I also bought the English original edition with the burning bush - and I love this wonderful book.

Thanks Christiane. I am afraid that the Spanish edition will not be bilingual. What is a soft cover... And that the translation has been made by the same freeloading as always...
