Title: Solitaire
Artist: uncredited
Publisher: TOR
Year: 1984
Synopsis: See Graham Masterton Official Website
Comments: Another historical saga. I like the facets in the diamond and the illustration tells much about GM's sagas. It is focused around a woman and there is historical action a plenty with Zulu warriors, steam trains and ax wielding lumberjacks.

Comments: A classy cover for a novel about a giant diamond, The Natalia Star. I love the tagline:
A novel of explicit romance and violent adventure.

Publisher: Sphere
Year: 1982
Synopsis: See Graham Masterton Official Website
Comments: A 1982 Sphere edition of Solitaire. The first one I have seen without some sort of diamond motif. But hey, that guy's pants are brighter than the sparkle of an 80 carat stone, anyway, and just as blinding!

Thanks go to Darksecretz for another Sphere edition from her collection.

Publisher: Hamish Hamilton
Year: 1982
Synopsis: See Graham Masterton Official Website
Comments: A Hamish Hamilton hardback edition of Solitaire. A great photograph on the cover of this novel which is centered around a giant diamond. Hmmm, I'm betting that's a cubic zirconia. What do you think?

Thanks to Kent Songer.

Comments: A paperback edition of Solitaire. A nice historical painting, although nothing that would jump off the shelf and scream "Read Me!" to a consumer.
