And so it begins

September 7, 2012

It looks as if Titan have now made this public, so I can post it here, too. This is the cover for the upcoming UK edition of The Executioner’s Heart.


Titan are giving the series a big relaunch in June next year with this book, to be followed by The Revenant Express and the as-yet-untitled sixth book in the series. This will be the new look and approach for all of the UK editions, I believe. In the US, Tor will continue to publish the novels in their lovely uniform editions, too.

Exciting stuff! I’m really delighted with the new look, and it’s nice to know the big, comprehensive short story collection, The Casebook of Newbury & Hobbes is going to be published in a matching edition too.

And it doesn’t stop there! There’s still a few other projects in the works, all of which I’ll tell you about as soon as I can.

In the meantime, what do you think of the new cover?

    I think the cover is pretty darn cool. I like the silhouette with the raygun best. One of the things I enjoy most about reading authors from other countries is seeing how their book covers differ based on location. Looking forward to the new books!

    very stylish, I like it (although to be honest I first picked up the series because the cover was so interesting and distinctive)! Also anticipating the new books eagerly.

    Excellent stuff! I love the three books already published and look forward to more! 🙂 Hopefully there can be more than six books and i’m definitely looking forward to the ‘other projects’ – I’m guessing that one of them may be the Malbury Cross graphic novel as Titan already publish lots of GNs.
