Having shared and enjoyed the artwork of DW's titles for some time now, I thought I ought to expand the experience by including publications by others, where DW is featured as a short story writer, as the writer of the foreword/prologue to others' works, or mentioned in some way.

The covers that follow show titles that I have managed to collect or, in a few instances, 'borrowed' from places like eBay.  I have initially arranged them by publication date except where there is an obvious grouping of titles.  In these cases the first publication date decides the placing of the group.  There are many more titles and I will add these as and when I obtain details.
