  1. SWEET!

    Chuck Lukacs art is great too.

    Very much looking forward to this one.

  2. I can virtually guarantee you won't be disappointed. I felt like Enge's work sits between Abercrombie and Lynch tonally, with a real nod to Leiber and even a touch of Wolfe or Moorcock. Maybe even some Gaiman or Swanwick in his prose.

    I'm throwing out too many names. I just thing he's a power, 'is all.

  3. Gorgeous, gorgeous cover.

    I'm psyched about the interior illustration too.

    Very much looking forward to April.

  4. The interiors - mostly shots of the cursed sword Tryfing - are very, very cool!

  5. Even if I had heard nothing about this novel, that cover would compel me to buy the book.

  9. That cover would c ompel me to buy the book too - it's wonderful! - IF it didn't have the human on it. The human sort of spoils it - here you have this mysterious moonlit foggy city leaving you to wonder where the blood comes from, and then you have a male (I presume) holding a sword.

    As a side note - blood must be the current hot topic - just to the right of your post is another blood book - The Blood Debt.

  10. Blood is always a hot topic.

    I like how the red of the figures shirt is the only spot of color.

  11. One day you are going to come up with something I don't want to read.

    It appears today is definitely not that day, however.

    :)
