New Artwork: Jon Courtenay-Grimwood & Sam Sykes

Just a very quick art post for Saturday, this time bringing you two new pieces for novels by Jon Courtenay-Grimwood, and the cover for Sam Sykes’s next novel.

First up, Jon Courtenay-Grimwood’s excellent The Fallen Blade is getting a paperback release already (well, ok, not really “already”, but time has certainly flown!), with a very nice cover indeed:


Second, we have the final artwork for the sequel, The Outcast Blade, which is one of my most-anticipated novels of 2012 (due out in May):


I really like this new style, which is better than the original design (which I did also like, I should state). I did find another potential cover for The Outcast Blade (below), which was more in keeping with that of the first edition of The Fallen Blade, but I assume it was just a place holder. It’s a nice one, too. Here it is:


And finally, the cover for Sam Sykes’s The Skybound Sea, another highly-anticipated release (due out in April):


The Skybound Sea is the third novel in Sykes’s Aeon’s Gate series, following Tome of the Undergates and Black Halo.

That’s it for today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
