Cover art

I found today an excellent cover and with her help, an excellent artist. The cover is designed for "The Return of the Sorcerer: The Best of Clark Ashton Smith", a collection of stories selected by Robert Weinberg and with an introduction by Gene Wolfe. The book will be published in October 2008, the hardcover format by Prime Books and the paperback format by Wildside Press. The author of this great cover is Peter Bergting, a 30 years ol Swedish artist, with illustrations published by Dragon Magazine, Dungeon Magazine, Spectrum Fantastic Art, Mage, just to mention some of them. Peter Bergting also wrote, drew and colored "The Portent", a comic book title that is available in English, French, German, Spanish and Swedish. Now, I'm not sure, but I think that this art appeared in a Swedish RPG game, Gemini, and also it was used for the cover of a Nick Perumov's novel translated in Swedish, "Diamantsvärdet och träsvärdet, första delen". I enjoyed very much this cover and also I enjoyed the illustrations from his website.
