Hi all,

While in my local bookstore, I happened upon the following title originally published in 2001 by Sourcebooks (www.sourcebooks.com) and was reprinted in 2003. Here is a link to a sample chapter:

http://www.sourcebooks.com/pdfs/sample_ ... Worlds.pdf

Although I was surprised and delighted that they featured some Alvim Corrêa illustrations on the cover (of the 2001 edition), a collage on the intro page just before the foreward by Ray Bradbury and on page 6 (both shown below), I was disappointed that they misspelled the artist's name as 'Alvin Correco'. :alien2: I will try to reach the editor of Sourcebooks about correcting this error ASAP! :evil:

The pics are attached below for your viewing pleasure!

Cheers!

PS. The book has a lot of historical data, other illustrations, and a complete illustrated reprint of the 1898 Edition of the story.
