Two New Orbit Covers

Per usual these cover may not be the final versions as the books are both months away from release, but they certainly show the direction they are headed in.

When I first head the title for A. Lee Martinez's next book Emperor Mollusk vs. The Sinister Brain I immediately declared it in the running for best title EVER!  I stand by that statement. This has moved immediately to my list of must-reads in 2012, which should be out in March. The cover seems fitting for Martinez as the poster approach has worked well for him in the past most notably for Monster.  Here is the blurb:
Emperor Mollusk is a retired supervillain from Neptune who just wants to retire on Earth.

Unfortunately, he’s forced out of retirement when a legendary death cult marks him for assassination. Now with half the universe out to kill him, he’s got to use his feared intellect and superior technology to keep himself alive while unraveling a mystery that could be more important than he ever suspected.

Timeless is the fifth and final book in Gail Carriger's Alexia Tarabotti series of whimsical Steampunk adventures. The cover fits in nicely with the series. I hesitate to add the synopsis as it is rife with spoilers depending on where you are in the series.  But as the cover shows Alexia does Egypt after having visited France, Scotland, and Italy in other volumes.  Alexia is certainly a world traveler and I'll be sad to see her story end as they have been endlessly entertaining.  Carriger hasn't confirmed what she is writing next, but it will be interesting to see if she revisits this world with different characters down the line. Heartless the fourth book in the series will be out in June with Timeless to follow in March.

UPDATE: Someone in the comments pointed me towards Carriger's announcement about her next book, which will be set in Alexia's world, only about 25 years earlier. The series will is titled The Finishing School Series and is meant for a YA audience, but if the sex is scaled back a bit from Alexia's books there shouldn't be much of a shift. The first book tentatively titled Etiquette & Espionage should be out in 2012.

That's from Miss Carriger's site:

The Finishing School Series: first book tentatively titled Etiquette & Espionage with three others to follow.

If I remember correctly, the books are YA and are set in Alexia's world, only some 40 years prior to Souless. Hope that helps! :)
