I liked the covers that Gollancz did for Abercrombie's First Law trilogy, and this definitely meets the same standards. Good stuff. The fact that its got a map on the front is rather ironic though, given Simon Spanton's (Gollancz editor) anti-map stance... ;)
You can check out the full hardcover wrap-around cover in all its glory here. I tried to upload the picture, but Blogger didn't like it and refused to play ball. Damned technology...
Speculative Horizons is a UK-based blog dedicated to discovering the best in speculative fiction. Here you'll find book reviews, author interviews, artwork for upcoming releases, and commentary on all aspects of the genre.
A child of the eighties, I was raised on a steady diet of Ghostbusters, Thundercats and Transformers. I eventually discovered fantasy books via the awesome Fighting Fantasy series, and my love of fantasy led me to create Speculative Horizons, a popular book review blog I ran for three years. In 2010 I joined Orbit to work as an editorial assistant.
