Trivia Edit

  • There are cover images of The Alchymist's Cat and The Oaken Throne audio tapes (released by Hodder Headline Audiobooks) online that erroneously credit Iain Glen and Alison Steadman as their readers, respectively. The most likely explanation is that Glen and Steadman were originally going to record the books, but for whatever reason, those plans were scrapped and Tim Pigott-Smith and Fiona Shaw were brought in instead.
