After a longer time without new cover drafts, CC has posted a draft for the cover of the German Kobayashi Maru today.

That's a much cooler cover, but it doesn't make the book not suck, does it?

The Japanese get some really good covers too for their Star Wars novels.

Yeah, I love the Japanese SW covers. I really like that KM cover too.

Very cool. I think that's my favorite NF.

Re: Why does Germany get the cool novel covers?

Yeah, I like it too, but oddly enough it gets mostly negative comments on the Facebook post.

Too esoteric, too fantasy-like, too cheesy, etc...

I like both covers. That's the first good NF cover than the others.

Re: Why does Germany get the cool novel covers?

They've revealed a cover draft for Gebranntes Kind (Once Burned).

This will be the first Cross Cult NF novel that is not a reprint, since the former publisher hasn't published Once Burned and Double or Nothing for some reason and jumped directly to The Quit Place after Fire on High.

And no, I've no idea why Burgoyne is in the bar.

ETA: Burgoyne apparently is only a place holder in this early draft.

Is that supposed to be Calhoun as the prime figure getting the drink from the waitress? If so, it looks nothing like the Calhoun that has been used on the North American covers. Although, its seems Germany's Calhoun has also been protrayed as the same thuggish looking character Defcon just shared. So there are two interpretations out there? One for NA and one for Germany/Europe?

Yeah, it supposed to be Calhoun. And this is just CC's interpretation of the character, it's not for all of Europe (or Germany for that matter, as another German publisher has published some of the books with the US Calhoun on the cover).

I guess NF's Calhoun is having his own "Saavik" portrayal issues.... Kristie Alley or Robin Curtis....

Not to bad, although I'm the biggest fan of their Calhoun.
