Continuing the theme from the last post, Pan Macmillan have also decided to rejacket The Commonwealth Saga, Peter F. Hamilton's duology which preceded his current Void Trilogy. Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained, with their new covers by Steve Stone, will be reissued later this year. Entertainingly, the two covers form one big picture when lined up next to one another (shades of HarperCollins Voyager's mid-1990s covers for Asimov's Foundation books, which form one big picture when the first six books are lined up next to one another).
Whilst the artwork is good, I can't hep but feel the artwork is misleading. Whilst there is military action in the duology, it is a fairly small part of the story. In addition, the artwork looks more near-future military SF than galaxy-spanning space opera in the late 24th Century, and might have been a better fit for Hamilton's near-future Greg Mandel trilogy.
