The Empty City 1st edition image?

Hi all,On about 1991 Andy merged (as I understand the story that is) his original Icehouse stories with The Empty City to make a "feature length" novel.  That first printing was not the shiny later versions (the version with Alison's sweet artwork) but was photocopy-like.Does anyone have an image of this first version?  I don't mean a copy of the book itself, just an image of the cover and back covers.Thanks in advance.See More

"While I am a fan of simplicity, I was hoping for a super-exciting tale of intrigue around the name change.  This will do however.   ;-) Thanks Andy!"

"The only difference is the Z. At first John was calling it Arcana but then he heard about an existing game by that name, long forgotten but a worry at the time. So we added a Z at the front, which we all liked better anyway."

"At fFirst, I was thinking you were asking about the difference between Gnostica and Zarcana.  But I quickly understood what you mean. Zarcana is generally considered the earliest member of this branch of the fFamily tree.  But it is…"

I heard mention on The Download of a game named Arcana that was the predecessor of Zarcana.  Looking around I've noticed that Zarcana came from Arcana, but I cannot find information on the differences between the two.  Is anyone familiar if Arcana was appreciably different than Zarcana, and if so what were those differences?Thanks in advance.See More
