January 1998

Bladud Books and Moyra Caldecott have decided to republish Aquae Sulis with the new title The Waters of Sul. There will be a new cover design with artwork by Stuart Littlejohn, and some minor changes will be made to the text.

There are two main reasons for this:

  1. There was a fault in the binding which caused some copies to crack along the spine, among other things.
    To the best of our knowledge, no faulty stock was sold to the public. The problem was random and necessitated checking every book before it was sent out.
  2. Moyra Caldecott received a letter from a solicitor representing the registered owner of the trade name "Aqua Sulis" (note the different spelling). The letter stated that the book should be withdrawn from sale, or a fee paid for the use of the name. We, and countless others, are shocked and amazed that the Roman name for the city of Bath can be registered as a trade name. Had we not needed to reprint anyway, we would not have decided on the name change.
