The Geomancer


For Your Viewing Pleasure: Hurricane Moon

I let this one sit up at Meme Therapy for a bit, where it was part of the interview with artist Brian W. Dow. But now I think we can show it here, along with the front cover layout. Illustration is by Brian, with design from Brian & Prometheus in-house artist Nicole Lecht, who makes her Pyr debut. The book - the first novel from Analog regular Alexis Glynn Latner - is slated for a July 2007 release. A story of planetary colonization, full of danger, romance and interpersonal conflict, Dow captures the spirit of the book beautifully in his wrap-around illustration. Do you trust that guy in the bottom left? I'm not sure you should.


  1. The book cover is gorgeous, and suggests that this will be a very interesting story. I am looking forward to it!

  2. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yeah, the book really is amazing. Lots of detail and layers of characterization. Great human dilemmas. A complete joy to illustrate.

  3. The book has both romance, and the hard scientific extrapolation you'd expect of an Analog regular. Somehow, I think Brian's cover and the type treatment manages to speak to both.
