Remember when I killed the UK Raymond Feist covers?

This is a lot more like it, isn’t it?

I’m not in love with the cover, but it’s the best one that’s ever been put on one of Feist’s books. The pop of red works very well here, and I’d be interested in who the artist is, as HarperCollins UK didn’t announce it anywhere I can find.

What’s interesting is that this edition of Magician will be shelved as young adult. Being a thirty one year old man, what does it say about me that I’m most attracted to it? Or does it say something about how Harper markets?

I wonder.

    It was done by the Assassin’s Creed artist, I believe. I like this one quite a bit.

    Yes! Much better.

    Definitely Harper. I assume you’ve seen the cover art thread at westeros where all responses to the photoshop covers are “blergh?”

    This is definitely a good cover.

    And it makes sense to retcon Magician as YA. It could be seen as such.

    I didn’t particularly enjoy MAGICIAN, but this is a pretty sweet cover.

    But … now it looks like a Mark Lawrence book!!! :D

    Excellent cover! Replacing my crappy ebook covers with these ones now – and I’m 32, so it doesn’t say anything too bad about you :)
