I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that my dark fantasy novella The God Engines was getting a second cover, by artist Vincent Chong, who has done the artwork for all my Subterranean Press versions of the Old Man’s War series of books. Here’s that cover:
In a word: Excellent. I’m deeply pleased with this cover. In fact it’s being made the sole cover for the novella, because it is more accurate for the story in tone and imagery. This is not to take away from the previous cover, which had qualities of its own. But this cover is very close to what I saw in my own mind’s eye when I was writing the tale.
Chong is now putting together the interior illustrations for the novella, and once those are in, it’s off to the printer. I’m getting really very excited about this, because it really is something different from me — really different, people — and I can’t wait for you to get a chance to read it.
