To my shame and without a proper excuse I can’t find an explanation for not reading Ekaterina Sedia’s novel, “The Alchemy of Stone”. I mean I loved her novel “The Secret History of Moscow” and the synopsis of “The Alchemy of Stone” has really picked my interest, but I didn’t read the novel yet. Well, with the promise that my next future read will be Ekaterina Sedia’s “The Alchemy of Stone” I’ll post the cover art for the future re-print of the novel, one that will be published by Prime Books in November this year. I discovered this cover last week, first on Bibliophile Stalker and second on OF Blog of the Fallen and I really liked it. I am not certain who the artist is, but in one of the captivating SF Signal’s Book Cover Smackdown is featured the cover for “The Alchemy of Stone” and there the named artist is Andrä Martyna. I’ll be honest with you, I like more the cover of the previous edition made by David Defigueredo, but this new cover is not far behind and I enjoyed it quite a lot too.
