Um. Wow.

Along with Range of Ghosts, Elizabeth Bear’s The Eternal Sky Trilogy has featured some of the best Fantasy cover art in years. This is gorgeous, and I applaud Tor’s effort to promote and capture the ethnic diversity of Bear’s work and her characters. Beautiful, important and powerful.

    Um, wow, yes. Very much a companion piece to Range of Ghosts

    Hey Aidan.

    According to Ms. Bear, this is not the final cover! (the title is wrong). Here’s the final cover

    Cheers, Paul. The original post has been updated accordingly.

    I feel like I’m on peyote.

    So, just another Tuesday for you, Justin?

    You really, REALLY need to read Range of Ghosts Aidan. Like, right now.

    I know, I know. It was a toss-up between Range of Ghosts and The Killing Moon by Jemisin. I went with the Jemisin, which I don’t regret, since I enjoyed it so much, but I’ll certainly be sneaking Range of Ghosts into my reading pile, probably right after I finish my current read.

    Wow… I love this cover! I may have to pick up this trilogy JUST for the covers.
