They are being slowly reissued. The Plantagenet series is now up to "Follies of the King" which was one of the titles that was very hard to find second-hand while they were out of print.

Oh, in the Tudor series, they've changed the title "Gay Lord Robert" to just "Lord Robert" :rolleyes:

I love the comparison of the old covers and the new.

I like the original hardback covers published by Hale. I remember borrowing them from the local library and they were really nice.

They're great books Whirlie, but my JP phase is over now. I gave all the books to a woman who loved Jean's writing, years ago.

I'll always have fond memories of seeing another world in her historical novels though :)

I wonder if they'll change 'The Battle of The Queens' too? :oops:
