If there will be a new cover hasn't been decided yet. It will be discussed in late February during an editorial conference.

I don't know about you but I find this exciting!

Btw, I wonder what the German title might be.
Ununterscheidbar von Magie or Von Magie ununterscheidbar is kind of a stumbling block.

How about Technik ist magisch/Engineering is Magic! (just joking)

Well, it is of course a quote of Arthur C. Clarke's "Third Law" that "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." So the question would be, how is that phrase generally translated in German?

"Jede hinreichend fortgeschrittene Technologie ist von Magie nicht mehr zu unterscheiden."

That's where I got my proposal from, I just dropped the "mehr" from it to shorten it a bit.
