Surprising recycling!

The US cover of Patrick Rothfuss’ The Wise Man’s Fear is this above gloomy passage in what appears to be a medieval fortified city… (It could be Edinburgh, it could be Saint-Malo, any idea anyone?!) So I am surprised the same picture is used for another 2004 book, Powers of Detection, which is a collection of short stories edited by Dana Stabenow, featuring Anne Perry, Charlaine Harris, and others…

It is not exactly the same picture, since taken from under a covered passage, but it is definitely the same place! It is unlikely that Powers of Detection has such an audience as to confuse Rothfuss’ fans, but I wonder if this will require a change of cover for the second printing of The Wise Man’s Fear.
