An early draft of the cover for Tobias Buckell’s upcoming novel, The Cole Protocol has emerged. This is Buckell’s first novel in the Halo universe and is the first time in years that I’m actually considering reading a liscensed novel. I’m such a Buckell fanboy, it’s sick….

Hey, I was out to see a movie, but I got notice that this is actually *not* the final cover, but a draft that somehow ended up on Amazon. Explains why I wasn’t aware of it until you guys emailed me the link and heads up. So it’s a draft, an initial sketch.

Pretty amazing for a draft, huh?
