It was announced some months ago that Ian Tregillis' series The Milkweed Triptych would be released in the UK through Orbit. At first Bitter Seeds, the first volume, was scheduled for the end of the year, but got moved up to this July and the sequel The Coldest War will be coming in February. Orbit has opted to go with a totally new look instead of the ones given by Tor US. While I still love the Palencar version for Bitter Seeds best this design works a bit better then the Chris McGrath designs coming out shortly. This definitely give off a cool, dark vibe that meshes with the series thus far. Oh, and for those who would like to see what the Palencar cover for The Coldest War would have looked like check this out. Some very good stories go along with that image now that aren't related to Milkweed in the slightest.
I recently received a galley of The Coldest War that I'll be dipping into quite soon as I've waiting 2 years for it. It officially will be out in July around the same time the UK gets Bitter Seeds. If alt-history, crazy science, and dark gods are your thing you couldn't do any better then checking this series out.
