Something tells me the three covers may form a triptych.

So I wonder who will be on the other two? I really hope they include a non-screen character like Choudhury or Chen.

Maybe what's holding up the covers is making sure all the equations are correct.

Re: Still no covers for Cold Equations??

Very nice. And, sales-wise, you can't go wrong putting a nice portrait of Picard on a cover.

Or that they're properly chilled.

I usually strongly dislike covers that use photographic elements and try to pass them off as painterly, but this one is done quite adeptly.

It's certainly not bad. But nothing spectaculair either. I'm also thinking that all three books together will form one big cover.

Sounds really interesting, and I have to say I like the covers so far.

B4? Hopefully we're not going to see the Resurrection of Data, one main character coming back from the dead is definitely enough for one year.....
