Covers Unveiled for Simon R. Green, John Scalzi, and Stephen Deas

As we near the end of the year Publishers have been releasing the art for books due out next year. First up is the cover and description for Simon R. Green's latest Nightside book The Good, The Bad, and The Uncanny.

Things were going so well for P.I. John Taylor, that it was only a matter of time before everything hit the fan. Walker, the powerful, ever-present, never­to-be-trusted agent who runs the Nightside on behalf of The Authorities, is dying. And he wants John to be his successor-a job that comes with more baggage, and more enemies, than anyone can possibly imagine.

Decent art, but definitely not as good as some earlier volumes.  I still have to read Just Another Judgement Day, which will be released in mass market the same time as the hardcover of The Good, The Bad, and The Uncanny.  Next we have a new version of John Scalzi's The God Engines followed by the original just for comparison sake.  It seems the new version will be used on both the trade edition and signed limited edition.   The new art is much better, but I did enjoy the cheese of the old.  Either way Scalzi's first foray is a must-read for me.

Next up is the US cover for Stephen Deas's The Adamantine Palace.

I have to say this is well done and an improvement over the UK cover.  Lastly, not to deride Deas's UK covers as they have a nice classic feel is  the second in the Memory of Flames series is The King of the Crags from Gollancz.

Those are both draft covers of mine and the quotes on the front won't be as you'll see them when they're published. I will admit to feeling rather fortunate with all my covers so far.

Hi Stephen,
Thanks for stopping by. You've certainly been fortunate with your covers. The art of the US version is perfect.
