First look at Lost in Translation cover art

Five Star has published its winter catalogue online, which has given me my first look at the cover art for my upcoming novel Lost in Translation (due out in late February). The artist is Alan M. Clark.

UPDATE, March 1: Oops. Turns out the cover artist is actually Jill Bauman.

It’s not quite what I expected, but that’s always the case when an artist illustrates your words. I’ll reserve final judgment until I see it in colour.

Here it is:

    Congratulations Ed! Looks intruiguing, and I’m looking forward to reading it 🙂

    Yes, one never knows an illustrator’s take, hmm? I’ve been really pleased with Stephen McCallum’s take on my stories, but that isn’t always the case. Another writer I know was upset when she learned that illustrations for her book were done in an animation style — which happened to be all the rage at the time. Stephen has mostly illustrated exactly as I imagined.

    Can’t imagine the potential variation there must be in speculative fiction, however! (perhaps one day I’ll find out)
