Default Skies of Pern cover artwork available as desktop wallpaper

Hi there! Not so long ago I posted about Les Edwards offering the artwork for Todd McCaffrey's first Pern book: Dragonsblood as wallpaper which can be downloaded from Les Edward's site.

I happened to email him to compliment him on the artwork and thank him for putting it up for download and in that mail I also expressed my desire (and I'm sure I am not the only one) for the artwork of Anne's The Skies of Pern as wallpaper. The artwork, without the bookstitle and other "cover trappings" is eminently suited as a desktop wallpaper and will be much loved because of the fact it is depicting the valiant Golanth!

Les has been very kind and has honoured my request!

So, get yourselves to: http://www.lesedwards.com/wallpaper.htm, to download the beautiful artwork for Anne's latest Pern Book! It is available in 1024 x 768 and 800 x 600 versions.

Thanks Les! Now we know that Anne's cover artists can be every bit as kind as our favourite author herself if they react to a fan's request this way
