Wednesday Paperback Cover

Bonus points to anyone who can tell me what a "rood" is in this context.

In this context, I'm not sure we want to know.

What I find curious is the fanfare at the top of the cover:

A New Novel By The Author Of MANDINGO

And then we get two names.

If Mandingo was such a hit, why did Kyle Onstott need help from Lance Horner or vice versa?

Perhaps it was to try and figure out what a "rood" was.

I can't believe there was a "novel" called Mandingo! Good grief, Nathan, what kind of filth are you peddling on this site of yours?

Nate, if the man wrote a book called "Mandingo" then I think we all know what he meant by the word "Rood." But wouldn't tattooing it hurt?
