Exciting News from Subterranean Press

Amongst the covers I'm working on right now -- MUSE OF FIRE by Dan Simmons, coming this December from Subterranean Press. Final color art will be shared here next week. Here's a peek at part of the b/w pencil underdrawing. Subterranean's taking pre-orders for this book right now. Word to the wise: all of Subterranean's previous Simmons limited editions completely sold out. So act quickly if you're interested. :)

More exciting news -- I've agreed with Subterranean to cover-illustrate their forthcoming limited editions of two more Simmons magnum opuses (or is that "opi"?), THE TERROR and Dan's forthcoming book, DROOD, which is set in the life and times of Charles Dickens. I'm reading DROOD right now and it's awesome....an absolute page-turner. Subterranean is taking pre-orders right now for THE TERROR and I'll post here when they start taking orders for DROOD.

Much more about the final MUSE OF FIRE art next week.

Thanks, man. There's a lot more to this drawing, but I'm holding back until I get the whole thing down in color. Should be done this week. Hope you're doing well over there!
