2 Comments on A Gallery of 179 SF/F/H Book Covers for April 2013 (A HUGE Book Cover Gallery)

  1. The Transgalactic book cover looks really nice.

  2. Interested in seeing what the cover art for the 20th anniversary On Basilisk Station.

    You by Grossman sounds interesting, as does River of Stars. Haven’t read Guy Gavriel Kay.

    Will be picking up Mary Robinette Kowal’s latest for sure. My wife and I are enjoying that series.

    Not sure that I’ll be rushing out to pick anything else up other than the Scalzi episodes as they continue to come out.

    As always, love slobbering over the cover images.
