New Guy Gavriel Kay UK covers

Much of Guy Gavriel Kay's backlist is being reprinted by HarperCollins Voyager in the UK on 3 February 2011, with new cover artwork. New to the UK, anyway, as the covers seem to be more or less the same as the new Canadian covers put out by Penguin Books.

The five released covers so far:

(I assume that that the covers for the two books of The Sarantine Mosaic are supposed to link up, so the final cover design may be slightly different)

In addition to these five books, The Lions of Al-Rassan and The Last Light of the Sun are also being reissued. Their covers have not been released yet.

A Song for Arbonne
Sailing to Sarantium
Lord of Emperors
Under Heaven

Also, Ysabel, which was given the same treatment a while back.

The covers look good!

Is there any scoop on ebook versions of GGK's back-titles? It seems to be pretty hit-or-miss when trying to track down legally available ebook versions of his older titles.

I've made reading suggestions to several people who just won't buy anything but ebooks. Strange, I know... but these people exist and GGK isn't reaching them with many of his works.

Voyager are taking ebooks very seriously now, starting off with new ebook editions of A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE that should be hitting in a few weeks. I imagine they'll be looking at doing something for Kay as well, although when is unclear.

I'm one of those people who would love to have Kay's books as ebooks. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it will happen.

I like these an awful lot! I do prefer Penguin's last round of GGK covers, but this was a nice direction for a revamp.
