The Fantasy Masterworks Series Gets a Beautiful Facelift

Considering that (1) I’m a sucker for Gollancz’s SF and Fantasy Masterworks book series, and (2) I’m a sucker for book covers, you could imagine how thrilled I am to see that Gollancz is rebranding the Fantasy Masterworks line with some beautiful art and design work.

The first titles coming from the relaunch include:

More titles will follow in 2014.

  1. Those look exceedingly amazing.

  2. I’d never heard of John James before. The description at the link sounds pretty interesting.

  3. The covers look great — except for Crowley’s. The title should be “ÆGYPT”, not “AEGYPT”.

    Horrible. Just horrible. I loved the look of the previous series so much better.

      Totally agree. The old covers with illustrations by masters like Bob Eggleton and Donato Giancola were wonderful.

    • I half agree. I love (and prefer) the first series Masterworks run (from the 90s and 2000’s). But then they started doing these negative/neon image version that looked less than inspiring. These new ones are a significant improvement.

    An attempt to mainstream?

  6. These look gorgeous–and I think Splicer has a point, an attempt at mainstreaming.
