Five Favourites: Novel Covers

1) Stormbringer

One of my favourite novels from my teen years, the cover just screams 'epic' and looks like a heavy metal album cover.



2) Halting State

This cover is just so odd and in keeping with the novel it's a cover for that it's charming.



3) American Gods

This is just so iconic, the road with the lightning strike.




4) Perdido Street Station

Whilst I do love the new covers for China's novels this image is just so strong. It's a beautifully wrought snapshot of an industrial fantasy city.




5) The Fire Sea

The fourth cover from the Death Gate Cycle, this now looks a bit dated and 'D&D'. Still there's something very iconic the dragon rising from the lava.
