SF&F In Print & On Screen
I like the new covers! Simple, but elegant.
Really? I think they look terrible.
Conveys nothing of the purpose of the books. The Tor ebook covers should be printed.
Eh. What Jay said.I like the new ebook covers much, much more. Kekai Kotaki's Great Hunt is particularly good. These look cheap.
Orbit is no doubt aware of how the love/hate dynamic of DKS's artwork. UK covers in general are usually understated, so it's not a surprise to see that they stayed fairly close to the original design. While the eBook covers are each individually fabulous, they probably wouldn't clearly represent a series on a shelf at the bookstore.I like 'em. I wouldn't give up my DKS hardcovers, but I like 'em.
Enh. The series is good in the style of old fantasy but it's been done. There's so much better out there : A Song of Ice and Fire, Malazan, Dagger and the Coin, Stormlight, Kingkiller Chronicle.... The Wheel of Time is overshadowed. They're good entertaining reads but I dunno if they'll hold up.
