    Dunno for sure, but I'm hoping and praying that they're going to reprint all of them (at least up through Hunter's Moon). I'd re-buy them all for no other reason but to have a uniform set for my library. My complete run of the Parker books is one of the prizes in my collection, but it's a motley looking bunch of books. Those Avons with Fred Ward in a turtleneck on the cover...and that inexplicable double...and then there's the Grofields...it's just a weird looking set.

    I was so excited when Mysterious picked 'em up, and I loved the matchbook cover for a graphic, but then they crapped out. I really like the trade dress that U of C has done, but I won't buy a single one until they blow past the Jugger.
