Cover art for the next MALAZAN novel

Bantam have unveiled the cover art for the next Malazan novel.

Orb, Sceptre, Throne is the fourth book in Ian Cameron Esslemont's Novels of the Malazan Empire sequence and will take place primarily in the iconic city of Darujhistan. It will serve as a sequel to Steven Erikson's Toll the Hounds. The book is currently scheduled for publication on 8 December 2011.

Esslemont will be following the book up with City in the Jungle (set on Jacuruku) and Assail, whilst Steven Erikson's Forge of Darkness, the first book in the Kharkanas Trilogy, is tentatively due in late 2012.

As usual, thanks to the cover art-watchers at for posting the cover.

Ooooh me like. Black/Purple mix is my favorite color scheme.

Pretty decent... Though I'll confess a preference for the Erikson covers. :P Thanks for the news.

"Throne of Darkness"

Im pretty certain the title is "Forge of Darkness", unless he has changed it.
