Awesome Books, Awesome Covers!

Hey everyone, thought I’d let you all have a look at some covers that have recently seen the light – some are for new books, some are rejackets, but they all deserve a spotlight. 🙂

First up we have the new jacket of Joe Abercrombie’s Best Served Cold; I have to be honest and say that I like the original cover more.

Next up, the preliminary (i.e. not final, so don’t go nuts yet) cover for Brent Weeks’ next novel:

I have to say I like this – it shows that a brand is definitely being created for Brent’s work, and it’ll always make his books leap off the shelves, visually. 🙂

Then we’ve got the much-debated US paperback-cover for Mark C Newton’s excellent Nights of Villjamur – not my favourite cover but a a pretty cool cover nonetheless!

Next up, some more striking cover art from the forthcoming Angry Robot title, Servant of the Underworld by Aliette De Bodard!

And now, the US cover art for Robert Redick’s sequel to The Red Wolf Conspiracy: The Rats and the Ruling Sea. As you see, the title has been truncated somewhat. 🙂

Next up, the cover of Jasper Kent’s sequel (and book 2 in the series) to the excellent Twelve:

Hopefully all the covers are kept the same for the UK releases – more author branding is never a bad thing, though I’m interested to see what happens with the US covers. 🙂

Next up, I’ve got a new cover for Brian Ruckley’s Winterbirth. It’s the Czech translation, and I quite like this! Wouldn’t mind a copy on my shelf! 😉

What do you think of the covers?
