Diana Wynne Jones' books in Germany

Books momentarily available:

Dark Lord of Derkholm
Einmal zaubern – Touristenklasse // Do magic once –  tourist class
Lübbe (2000)
Translated by Eva Bauche- Eppers
Comments: This one has a real bad cover text: it actually describes
Blade as „debile“ and talks of Querida as a male...
Cover: Steve Crisp

Feuer und Schierling
Fire and Hemlock
Beltz und Gelberg (1995)
Translated by Wolf Harranth
Comments: I quite like that cover. It seems mysterious to me. Note that

demanding“  children’s literature.

Deep Secret
Eine Frage der Balance // A question of balance
Lübbe (1999)
Translated by Eva Bauche-Eppers
Comments: When I was reading the book I constantly wondered who the
person in the middle of the cover was supposed to be. (And the fat naked
guy?). And whether the artist read the book...
Cover: Keith Parkinson

Plötzlich war da wilder Zauber
A sudden wild magic
Lübbe (1999)
Translated by Eva Bahche-Eppers
Comments: Now this cover lead me to believe the cover artist probably
didn’t read the book. There’s the person from Deep Secret again, so when
I started reading it I thought the books were connected...
Cover: Keith Parkinson
