Sword of The Sun
(From the book "Heroes & Villains Volume 2")
By : Deborah Susan Jones : Editor
After creating several of the Lone Wolf series paperback covers for Editions Gallimard in Paris for the French language market, Peter was asked by the author, Joe Dever, if he could help with cover designs for the UK edition, which had lover sales than the French editions, to which he agreed.
Thus it was that the artist was contracted by Arrow Books in the UK to carry on with the series for them, and in addition, many other overseas publishers contacted the licensing division of Peter's then company, Solar Wind Limited, to obtain reproduction rights in various languages for the series with his covers.
When then approached by Berkley Books (N.Y.C.) for North American rights, the license restrictions caused by an overlap of distribution area in Canada saw the artist suggest creating yet newer versions of several covers to avoid the exclusivity clash that would have otherwise occurred.
They remain some of the most popular of the artist's works created for the role play book genre ,along with many other series such as the Falcon series and of course Fighting Fantasy series of books.
