Subterranean Press have released their cover art for their forthcoming limited edition of Deadhouse Gates, the second Malazan novel by Steven Erikson, with art by J.K Drummond.
Hmm. It's not exactly as impressive as the Komarck cover for Gardens of the Moon.
But still, it could be a lot worse.
That's the actual original American cover art, which was so horrendous that even Tor - who pay actual money to Darrell K. Sweet for his work, remember - couldn't stomach it and ditched it. But for some reason it was inflicted on innocent Bulgarian readers instead. What did the Bulgarians ever do to Tor to deserve such harsh treatment?
It'll also be interesting to see if SubPress step up their release schedule a little. At this rate it'll be 2027 before the limited editions of all ten books are out, which is a long time to collect a complete set.
