Via Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist, I just ran across the US cover for Scott Lynch’s upcoming novel, The Republic of Thieves.

The cover art for 'The Republic of Thieves' by Scott Lynch

It’s keeping with the style of the US paperback release of The Lies of Locke Lamora, but I’m not really sure if that’s a good thing or not, I was more a fan of the Gollancz editions of the novels. If you ask me, CG Art and Fantasy don’t mix. Ever.

Take a look at the cover for Lynch’s upcoming Novella collection, The Bastards and the Knives for an example of what Gollancz is doing.
