Zoe’s Tale

John Harris: “When I heard the title, an image immediately formed in my mind of something to contrast with a name that has a nuance of a youthful and lively girl. Hence the dreadnought rust bucket of a ship in the throes of a lethal attack. Placing the diagonal of the structure behind the ship, emphasises its static heavy nature.”

John Scalzi: “There’s a bit of a superstition in publishing about green covers, as in, books with green covers are rumored to do less well than books with covers of different colors. This always bothered me because green is my favorite color. So I was secretly delighted when John offered up this big, green artwork. For the record, Zoe has sold very well, and was nominated for both the Hugo and Norton awards. Myth busted.”
