I admit it. I have a thing for Mad Scientists of all stripes. The just slightly crazy ones like Doc Brown where they are a bit silly and barely realize how revolutionary their ideas are to more recent creations like Ian Tregillis's Dr. von Westarp who is the epitome of all the evils that science can achieve. Which brings me to this week's new cover art: The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke, which will be her debut adult novel coming from Angry Robot that was found as part of their Open Door submission period. Although, the scientist in question isn't a the center of things. Here's the blurb:
There’s never been anyone - or anything - quite like Finn.One of the things I like about Angry Robot's style of covers is that there isn't one. They try to give each a very unique look to their books. I may not be a fan of all the styles, but more times then not it is something that is very fitting for the story. With The Mad Scientist's Daughter they nailed it beautifully.
He looks, and acts human, though he has no desire to be. He was programmed to assist his owners, and performs his duties to perfection. A billion-dollar construct, his primary task is to tutor Cat.
When the government grants rights to the ever-increasing robot population, however, Finn struggles to find his place in the world.
The Mad Scientist's Daughter escapes into the world in February right around the time another Mad Scientist related project is being unleashed.
