    I'm not too keen on the Rise Like Lions cover. I actually preferred the earlier cover with Martok and Dukat on it, although I guess Picard is to be a major character in the novel.

    I like the Rings of Time cover a lot.

    Just a shame they used a flipped image of him again so that his face looks all wonky.

    So that is the final cover then. It's been up on the catalouge for a while now.
    I like it, sure it's kinda simple, but it works. It even the keeps the broken glass motif that they used for the first three books.

    I've sent a heads-up to S&S, and the editor says they'll see if it can still be fixed. It might not be possible if it's too far along, but we'll do what we can.

    Since it's Mirror Picard, maybe it's supposed to be a reflection.

    Isn't it supposed to be a Mirror reflection? ;)

    Dammit, was Christopher channeling my thoughts while I was buttering my toast?

    This sums up my reaction to this cover perfectly. I can see why it might not sit well with some people, but I absolutely love it, and I hope it does become the final cover.

    Well it is being written by David "Destroyer of Worlds" Mack.

    Which seems to be suggestive of both the TMP-era and Abrams versions of the ship, even though it's a TOS-era novel.

    I like the newer versions of both covers. RoT now looks even cooler, but TWD is still a bit meh. I like covers that are somewhat descriptive of the books.

    Maybe I'm missing something. The link you have takes me to the same cover I saw the when this thread first started. To me it looks just as abstract as before. As near as I can tell, it's the same exact cover.

    I did notice the changes to the That Which Divides cover though.

    Hmm. Something must have gone wrong for you. I tried that link and got a much more photo-realistic version of the scene . . .

    Aww. I have to admit, I like the older versions better for both.

    So - more photorealistic.

    Less accurate.

    :)

    I liked the original one better too. This new one isn't bad though.

    Quick update: it's been fixed, though they might not have updated the one in the catalog yet. But the final version has been corrected. Thanks for the heads-up — we caught it in the nick of time! :)
