A choice of cover art

Gary Gibson and Tor UK are asking for our opinion in regard to artwork for the cover of the author’s next novel, “Empire of Light”. You can make a vote either on Gary Gibson’s website or following the instructions on the site of Tor UK. I am not sure until when the poll on Tor UK will run, but that on Gary Gibon’s website is open until late Friday, so there is still time to cast votes. I voted for the one on the right, because I find the left one to be a bit too bluish and because I find the right one to be more suggestive.

If the story takes place on a water world then it is a must to choose the left one. But I estimate there is nothing related to a water world. So the left cover is the only possible choice.

Michael, I thought so too. And I think that the right one is related more to light or a reaching for light.

I love these cover voting things!

I agree with you, I like the one on the right also. The imagery is more defined and I like the colors.

Maria, me too :)

Donna, I like the colors on the right one more too :)

I like the one on the left more, but I tend to like blue.

No problem with that, Barbara :)
