So, I just got back from a marvelous two days of lounging in hot springs and reading novels -- two of my favorite things!

And I found this on my flist:



Guys, that is the new cover of Emma Bull's Bone Dance for it's re-release this year. I'm thrilled about the re-release; I have two copies of the old version, at least, because I pick it up at used bookstores whenever I find it. (It's hard when the only way you can get someone to read one of your favorite books is to give them your copy.) And I love this book times about a million, so I want everyone to read it. ETA: BUT see what I wrote here for reasons to read it from a library or used bookstore instead of buying it.

But. But but but. This is the old cover:



And one of the things you may notice? Even on that bleached-out cover? Is that Sparrow is not white. And in case people miss it on the cover, Emma Bull points it out in the text. SPARROW. IS NOT WHITE.

Everyone over on Emma Bull's post, including Emma Bull, is all "yay!" -- which I'm sure you have to be, because, well, re-issue, and Emma Bull's post -- but I am more than a little distraught.
