The sword cane is mentioned and slightly used in Turn Coat... not by Harry though. I like how he never even picked up a sword in the book and yet there he is... holding one..... on the cover. Hmmm...

The cover to Small Favor shows him holding a single action revolver too... pretty sure his 44 isn't THAT old.

& I don't think he's ever worn a hat... yet he's wearing one on every cover. It looks cool... but that's not how he rolls. Trench coat yes, staff yes, 44 occasionally. No cowboy hat though. He wore cowboy boots in a couple books though.

The guy who does the cover needs to get his $hit together.

Like I said, a tease for those of us who are expecting Warden Harry to get a freaking sword!

Well, you could buy a Ruger Single Action 44 today, but you'tre right, it wouldn't look as old as the one pictured on the cover. That looks Civil War era.

Hasn't he worn a Cubs hat as part of a disguise, or maybe I'm thinking of Murph.

TRUE! Well, at least the glowing runes on his staff are the right color.

Whoa! We actually see his face (frontal 3/4 view) on a cover?!

Thanks for the heads-up about the release.

I don't think he ever wore one in the TV show, either. Not sure about the comics or graphic novel.

I never used to wear hats unless it was -20degF and windy. Babylon 5 and Crusade changed that. Most days, I wear my Crusade ballcap, and nobody knows what "Crusade" is (was). People have actually asked. The rest of the time I wear my "Babylon 5" ballcaps, and almost nobody knows it, either.

Yep... cliffhanger... to be continued at a later date I guess.

Changes really was an good title for the book... everything changed. By the time you get to the end you're left with, "what happens next?"
