Behold the cover for my forthcoming novel, 88 Names (details in my last blog post). The artist is Jarrod Taylor, who also did the cover for Lovecraft Country, as well as an early concept cover for The Mirage.
This time around Mr. Taylor delivered a number of cover ideas, all cool in different ways, but this one was my favorite. It’s a great fit for the story, but the thing that really sold me was the visual pun of the paper name tag as VR goggles: Freaking brilliant, as I told my editor.
In related news, yesterday I signed off on the second pass galleys, the last version of the novel I will see before we get bound review copies later this year. So book #7 is done; time for me to start thinking about what I’m going to write next.
