  1. Given my taste in authors, and Ancient Rome, the Turtledove definitely gets my attention on this list.

  2. I think the exclamation point makes the title.  :)

    Paul, yeah, I’m a big Turtledove fan, and a big fan of Ancient Rome history. That one looks great. And I love the crotchety tone of the title. You expect “Dag-nabbitus!” to follow it. Well, I do.

    Angry Robot needs a cover artist, clearly. :)

  4. Yeah, I probably should have clarified that the Angry Robot covers are placeholders for pending artwork.

    I figured. Or at least hoped. :)

    And I didn’t see it last time I looked, but Martin Millar! He wrote “Good Faeries of New York” and, I think, “Lonely Werewolf Girl.” I read Good Faeries of New York, and it was fantastic. And reading the description of this one, you realize that “madcap” and “insane” don’t actually do justice to Millar.

     

  6. The Chris Roberson and Tim Waggoner titles are mixed up.

  7. Whoops!  Fixed.  Thanks!

  8. Placeholders – okay, that makes sense.  For a minute, I thought “Okay, Angry Robot seems to be going for that Book Noir look. I can dig it.”  😀

  9. Well, we considered not bothering with cover art for a few seconds – think about all the money we’d save! But then again, we were very, very drunk at the time.
