Cover has been revealed for ST: No Time Like the Past
Terrible cover, but still a first-day purchase. Greg Cox hasn't given me a bad book yet.

I think cover ok. Although since I switched from real books to kindle the cover seems to matter less to me now, whereas before it was a very important aspect of the book. Always find it curious how quickly one can adapt to change.

I think the cover is ok. I don't think it's terrible, but it's not great either. I've already pre ordered, it sounds like it will be a lot of fun.

Re: News about early 2014 schedule

I like the cover. It gets the job done: Kirk meets Seven of Nine.

No one can possibly miss what the book is about. Mission accomplished.

(My fear, honestly, was that I'd get some snazzy bit of space or starship art that didn't play up the Seven-meets-Kirk angle.)

The design of the cover is pretty cool, but the execution isn't that great. It's IMO a pretty bad photoshop job.

With Greg Cox's reputation for outstanding writing in Science Fiction and Fantasy ... he can afford to have covers that look frumpy! And "never judge a book by its cover," anyway. They've been saying that since the dawn of time and they'll keep on saying it, long after paper books have gone the way of the dodo ...
