I really like that one. Very striking and vibrant. Should stand out on the shelf I think.

Very nice (again)
Really drives home the extent of haiman adaptation - they're really not human any more.

Question for the chaps is, of course:
Orlandine - would you ?

not a bad arse....... :D

Not at all what I envisioned in my minds eye - but I like it nonetheless

Jan Harald said...

That is actually very close to how I saw it in my head when reading...

The quality of you cover-art is increasing steadily with your popularity... Good to see...

Now this is effing cool! Nice one!
Must read it!

Hitch said...

No no no! Sorry, but I hate covers that depict things too clearly.

I "know" what Cormac looks like, I have a wonderful imagine of Orlandine in my head already (behave boys!).

I prefer the older covers from say Gridlinked, Skinner etc that have this mass of visualisation about them with nothing clear or concise. Personal opinion only of course, but to me it makes the imagination of the reader work better.

That's not to say it isn't great artwork, just not what I prefer to see.

As for would I? With the one in my head, yeah :D With the one on the cover, god no.

Paul said...

For me, I'm with Hitch. I did prefer the more abstract covers.

I'm with Hitch and Paul, I preferred the old covers. The new ones are artisticly excellent but I prefer to have my own 'images' in my head not someone elses. A for Graeme's question... Oh yes! I would definately!!!

TJ said...

Graeme said...

Yes I would. Agreed, nice arse.

Your name said...

Awesome!

Are these still limited to paperbacks or are there any hardcover plans in the works?
