    I’d pick that up for sure. Love the sort of watercolor look.

    I wouldn’t call the artwork itself a wrap-around, though; the back art looks like a zoom-in of the top half of the cover, but flipped around. (I think that’s not uncommon though usually it’s not flipped around like that.) Still–nice art! :-) Though I don’t care for the spine….

    Looks like a straight ripoff of some Robotech/Macross DVD’s I saw the other day, even the font is close to the same. Still really like it though.

    kick ass space opera (says so right on the cover) x Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) = hell yes!

    Yeah, agreed. that’s a pretty splendid cover. The fat font really helps make the piece.

    A really cool cover. I’m getting back into sci-fi & this cover reminds me of what I’ve been missing. It’s weirdly retro … and I like it.

    Okay, I’ll bite, that is a pretty cool cover. The book looks interesting too, to boot. I’ll add it to the to-buy list.

    Thats excellent cover art, very reminiscent of John Berkey but a more extreme viewpoint that keeps it up to date. I like Abrahams writing anyway but this piques my interest even more.

    I’m afraid my reasons are quite selfish. This book got some of its inspiration from a d20 Future game that was moderated by an online buddy of mine, and I played a character in it, the pilot in fact, so it’s only natural that I’d vote for it, of course. That it’s easily one of the best spacecraft and celestial object covers I can recall seeing is pretty secondary for me.

  • […] I love this cover. Along with Daniel Dociu‘s cover for Leviathan Wakes, I’m happy to see this trend of artists winking slyly at old-school Science Fiction covers […]

  • […] look at the cover, so expect a nice layer of polish to be added to the final copy. I loved the cover for Leviathan Wakes and this one looks like it’ll be just as great (if not quite so impressionistic and […]
