Libriomancer Cover Art

So yesterday, my friend Anton Strout commented that he had seen the cover art for Libriomancer, saying, “Holy Cats it is AWESOME!” Which is great … except that I hadn’t seen it yet! So I shot a rude comment in Anton’s direction (as one does), and e-mailed my publisher. DAW was kind enough to shoot the more-or-less final cover art my way.

The art is by Gene Mollica. My editor and I both independently came up with Gene’s name when we were brainstorming possible artists for this book, which amuses me to no end.

So anyway, meet Isaac Vainio, libriomancer from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and his fire-spider partner Smudge.

I am pleased.
