I really like the Coronet cover for this book. Never seen it for sale in any bookstores around here though, unlike the case for some of the Fleming Coronets.

Qwerty, Coronet has printed two or three editions of Colonel Sun.
Someone correct me if it was three.
As far as I know it's two cos I have both.

The second impression, the cover is Col. Sun with a red sky background.
This is the Pan cover from Bondian.com (now, imagine him on a red background)
I'll try to get a scan in once I can.
And the third edition is the David Scutt knife artwork.

Yeah, I usually refer to the David Scutt artwork when talking about the Coronets. :)

Agreed. As I keep saying. I don't know why they never did the whole set. :)

They thought that the other books won't sell well as the previous editions didn't. Basically, it will only sell to Bond fans which is true and not to the rest.

Because Fleming is always #1 to them. (Which he is IMO, but the others could be some great reprints.)
