I'm surprised to see a new book here by Frieda.
I'm assuming it is a re-do of the original "Stonepicker" with a new "Book of Mirrors" included?

Maybe I'm misreading what is going on. I'll know soon enough when my copy arrives from the amazon...Or if someone can fill me in.

Laurie, yes, I think it's Stonepicker (the book) and the new book - all in one book. Stonepicker, I don't think, was ever published in the US. I might be wrong. I'm just a bit confused as to why it's published first in the US and not the UK.

In the UK, The Book of Mirrors will be published on 10 October.

Ahh. I was going to mention I saw an October publication date for 'Mirrors' but was confused enough already. Thanks for clearing that up without prompt!

My book showed up today. Looks like it came from the real Amazon, beat up as it is...but anyways, a quick thumb through, found a Notes section in the back explaining some pieces that is interesting in itself. And it has an especially lovely picture of Frieda.
