A Crown of UK Dragons

And here we are, relatively hot on the heels of the US cover, the British design for UFiles #3.  Is this cool or what?

Don’t get me wrong, I like the purple US cover as well because it’s slightly weird and I love anything weird.  At first glance the Brit one has simply gone for full on visual impact – striking design, ace colours etc.  But there’s more to it than that.  Look through the dragon to the suggestion of a swirling universe beyond.  That is very much in keeping with the theme of the book.  So credit must go to the artist, Steve Wells, for producing something of great beauty that maintains the integrity of the book.  I sincerely wish the UFiles had done better in the market place, because taken together they are a fascinating read (as you’ll discover next spring when the book comes out) and this kind of artwork needs to be seen.  Hey ho, let’s hope for greater things come May next year.

Exciting cover.  This one will go on my wall.
