Custom cover art from Hamburg

Bad Monkeys
An artist named Britta Kussin who attended one of my appearances in Germany last February gave me a gift, a set of custom covers for my first three novels. When I saw how cool they were, I asked if she'd send me scans that I could post on the blog.

Here they are:

Fool on the Hill

SG&E

Set This House in Order

I really like this style, and of course there's something neat about seeing (almost) all of your books illustrated by the same hand.

remarkable
those covers are reeeeeaaaaaly remarkable - as covers for the books they could contain maybe a little on the dark-gloomy side for my taste (especially Sewer...), but the artwork itself is as much genius as the books they are intended for...

Wow. The one for Set This House In Order is amazing. Somewhat like the book itself.

All three are very cool but I especially love the one for Set This House in Order. It's the most poetic of the set.

Here's another vote for someone particularly struck by the cover for Set This House in Order. Yeah!

Very striking and original. You'r all ready for the Uniform Edition. I'd like to see what the designer would do with the new one, which I think has a striking "package" as we publishers say.

What they all said, except my favorite is SG&E
