Re: Sorry to inflict this on you - US Bonehunters cover

I much prefer the British cover version. I just hope that the style of the cover does not alter now, although of course that doesn't ruin the story!

I just hate it though, having a few books of the series with one cover and then changing it, like they did with Wheel of Time, especially when I have decided to keep the books. It really looks horrible on the book case!

Re: Sorry to inflict this on you - US Bonehunters cover

It looks like a Terry Pratchett cover. The original UK version was about a hundred times better, but this US cover is actually a hundred times better than the new UK cover.

Seriously, what's wrong with these marketing people that they actually think the new UK cover is preferable to the old one? It looks like something a kid would knock up in Photoshop. The Reaper's Gale one is barely better. What a pile of toss. Grr.

I spend way more time on the pages that are found after you turn the cover to the text, and as long as that is par with the rest of Erikson's books then I would be happy with a blank cover

Great. In a world of undead lizards, golden fire-skies, mysterious portals, terrible godlings and unnatural shapeshifters, they decide to focus on a b******y traffic accident in the snow.

Still waiting for everyone's favorite shadowdancer to grace the covers....

lol I never thought it like that.

my ideal cover would be Cotillion towards the end of Bonehunter with his head in his hands

The largely blank cover of Steph Swainston's The Year of Our War was pretty effective.
