THE GUNSLINGER by Stephen King

Very good. The rest of the novels:

The Dark Tower series by Stephen King

Very nice. Fresh, but still instantly recognizable as Dark Tower novels. And then there’s the cover for the forthcoming Dark Tower novel, The Wind Through the Keyhole, which will slot in somewhere between Wizard and Glass and The Wolves of Calla. Also very nice.

The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King

Which of the covers is your favourite? What do you think about the cover for Wind Through the Keyhole?

THE BROKEN ISLES by Mark Charan Newton

Small, and presumably an early draft, but this should give us a good idea of what will be gracing the final volume of Newton’s Legends of the Red Sun. Also, obviously meant to tie in with the trade paperback release of The Book of Transformations, though, again, a different artist/style from the previous volumes of the series. This is, I believe, the first time that the title of the novel has been mentioned.

My thoughts: another hooded figure, but the execution looks decent.


The northern wastes. . . .

A land of death and shadow where only the strongest survive. Yet that is where Caim must go to follow the mystery at the heart of his life. Armed only with his knives and his companions, he plunges into a world of eternal night where the sun is never seen and every hand is turned against him.

Caim has buried his father’s sword and found some measure of peace, but deep in the north an unfathomable power lays waiting. To succeed on this mission, Caim will have to more than just survive. He must face the Shadow’s Master.

Not my favourite from Pyr, or Komarck, frankly, and I’m not a fan of the colour palette at all, but I appreciate them keeping consistency across the series. I really need to read Shadow’s Son at some point.
