New Covers WOW!

As I believe I mentioned on here before, Macmillan have decided to produce new covers for the first four of my books. I guess they thought it about time what with, for example, Gridlinked now in its twelfth print run. Here are two of them. Please let me know what you think!



Both of these images are a mere blink away from what I was seeing in my fevered mind. Brilliant work Mr Jon Sullivan.

I would be lying if i said I wasn't extremely excited about this... (is that a bit sad?) I just need to see the next two images now. And then they need to get the rest of the series done as well...

Who is the artist?

David Robotham said...

That serves me right for commenting straight from the rss feed... I have just spotted the not about the artist...

teatime said...

wow those are pretty awesome, especially the skinner!

Sean said...

Since I've read "The Skinner", I can certainly appreciate the new cover. However, if I was not familar with your work and I saw that in the bookstore...I would pass, because I would have thought it was a straight horror novel, which is not my thing. Although, I have to admit, I passed on TS a few times because of the original (American) cover. (I thought it was cheesy.) The new covers are good but incredibly creepy.

Mark Chitty said...

Holy cow, they are AMAZING!

Seriously, seriously good. That Skinner cover has moved very quickly up to the top of my favourite covers of your books, narrowly beating the French Skinner cover.

WOW.

Antony said...

Skinner is amazing, although i didn't image its head to be like that ( thought it should look more distorted-human. I may be tempted to buy them again!

Are these paperback reprints or HB (do they do HB reprints?)

Neal Asher said...

Not half as excited about them as I am, David. Two more will be coming up soon.

Yup, teatime, the Skinner is definitely him. On the larger image you can also see where Ambel shot him with his blunderbuss.

Just maybe, Sean, the change will work to the good too and drag in a new market of readers.

Yup, you're right Mark, that French cover has been topped.

Anthony, I presume paperback, but it would be great if they did to a hardback one. There isn't really a decent one available.

Oh wow oh wow oh wow!

Neal Asher said...

Ahah, Mr Sullivan will be selling prints of the cover pictures from his website, but presently being snowed under with work (is that any surprise?) will not have it all updated for a month or so.

John D. said...

Seriously, you get the coolest covers.

looking thru his website this Skinner is prob the most amazing accomplishment outta his whole lot. he tossed out the cliches for this sweet little doll.

head, and torso; so happy together.

Martin Sommerfeld said...

"WOW" is just the word!!! Can't wait for Gridlinked...

XiXiDu said...

Fantastic, love them!

Matthew said...

Both are definitely great pieces of work. The Skinner picture has replaced the image in my head forever.

I'd love HB versions to replace the PB I have...the prints are tempting too

Weyland Yutani said...

Cool covers. I'm trying to grasp where that particular imagery comes from in Cowl and I can't find it in my memory. I always felt the iconic imagery from that book would/should include Polly being pulled through time. Perhaps, in the next, next reprint.

Regardless, the covers have always been very good.

Paul said...

He's definitely read 'The Skinner'. He's got all the detail in there.

Andy said...

Love the skinner one.. Cowl not so much.. Would love to see what they did for the other two, esp Gridlinked..

Greeting! What do you think of wow gold? I always lack of wow gold to buy some great item for my char before the wow patch 3.1 and I need to do wow power leveling for the cheapest wow gold or I have to search cheap wow gold on google search. The world changed since the 3.1 patch released. Short of buy wow gold for me wasn't so high frequency now. And I’m curious why this situation happened? The items became cheap? Or we can farm wow gold much easy? Hope someone can give me an answer.
