Implied Cover Art


Jeremy Lassen sent me the cover for my next novel, Implied Spaces.
Pretty eye-catching, ne?

I think it needs more cat, actually.

Cool. When can we get it?

And any cover can use more cat :-)

Swords & Cyberpunk?

You know, that's as good a description as anything I've yet come up with.

I've been having a hard time coming up with a snappy one-line description of this book. Implied Spaces is what happens when you take about three subgenres, accelerate them to near-light speed, and crash them together.

I'm hoping the result is pretty, but I'm having a hard time describing the explosion.

Wonderful cover.

And yes, I have to say...Swords and Singularity instead of Sorcery? ;)

Nice. And this comes out when? In TPB or HC?

Let's see . . . it's got your name as author, a provocative title, an extremely cool swashbuckler, a techno-wizardry vibe, and a kitty.

I'm there.

I'm certainly looking forward to getting my copy.

But then, I'm one of your guaranteed sales no matter what the cover looks like.

It's missing something, though . . . Got it. His left hand is empty - where's the smoking retro raygun or big-ass howdah pistol?

Swords & Cyberpunk? Already been there; see "Snow Crash".

I like that art! Is it depicting a scene from the book, or is it just sort of an allegory for the book itself? Or is it just supposed to look cool and catch the reader's eye? (Sort of like the cover art for "Voice of the Whirlwind", which has a guy in a stylin' Eighties-fashion spacesuit. I think that's the only spacesuit I've ever seen that has a jacket-buttoned-at-the-waist motif...)

Xardoz said something was missing from the left hand.

Recall that this is a WALTER JON WILLIAMS book. The object missing from the left hand is a culinary blowtorch, as used in making creme brulee.

Will you be wearing this outfit to the party?

Maybe the =next= party.

A Walter Jon Williams hero keeps the left hand free, not for a weapon or a blowtorch, but for a glass of wine.

I really like "Swords and Singularities." I tried it out at the signing on Saturday and it seemed to impress people. Let it be so.

Very nice, Water! So, who's the artist?

The artist is Dan Dos Santos, a fact I should have mentioned at the top.

A glass of wine, or an inhaler of snapcoke, right?
