I am sorry that I wasn’t able to make any post last week, but my home plans didn’t match those from the road. But here I am again and I resume the usual program with a cover art galore.
Last week we saw the cover artwork for one of the future titles published by Tor UK, Mark Charan Newton’s “City of Ruin”. Now we see a number of other Tor UK titles with some amazing cover artworks. First, some of the Neal Asher’s titles will be re-released in October and they benefit from some great covers made by Jon Sullivan. They look really good in my opinion and they are really attractive and have a strong impact on the viewer.
Next is the cover for the fourth novel in the Adrian Tchiakovsky’s series “The Shadow of the Apt”, “Salute the Dark”. I’ll admit that from the four covers of his novels I find this one to be the best so far. It keeps the line of the series, but I believe that it has something extra, with an improvement on the character drawn on the cover.
Last, but not least there is the debut novel of Col Buchanan, “Farlander”, which is due to be published in March 2010. Although I am not a big fan of characters on covers I am not reluctant either. If they are good and I feel an attraction toward the cover artwork I won’t deny their value. So is the case here a powerful image that with certainty makes me curious about the new author and his debut novel. The artwork for “Farlander” is made by Steve Stone.
