The first cover is from Matt Forbeck's upcoming Titanic themed horror novel Carpathia. This will be out March 2012, just in time for the 100th anniversary of the "unsinkable" ship. I like how this cover is blood stained, with the Titanic sinking in the background; pretty eerie! I've never heard of horror being combined with this famous disaster, and since I was such a fan of Vegas Knights, I'm excited to see where Forbeck's take on the story will go...
And also revealed just this week is the brilliant new cover art for Adam Christopher's Empire State. I've enjoyed following him on Twitter; his view on superhero fiction is awesome! If you haven't heard already, he practically got his Angry Robot deal via Twitter alone; you can read what I mean and how he came to be an Angry Robot author here.
Here's a brief synopsis and tag line:
" The stunning noir-fantasy thriller set in the other New York!
It was the last great science hero fight, but the energy blast ripped a hole in reality, and birthed the Empire State – a young, twisted parallel prohibition-era New York.
When the rift starts to close, both worlds are threatened, and both must fight for the right to exist..."
Empire State already has its own page at Angry Robot and from the early blurbs, this book just sounds all kinds of awesome, making me count the days til its US release date December 2011!! It is also featured in the Book Cover Smackdown at SF Signal.
Adam and Empire State will also be featured in The Qwillery for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge. To take part, you just need to sign up, buy the book when it comes out, read it, and then join the conversation over at The Qwillery; he will also be doing an interview and reader Q&A so check it out!
WOW! It looks like Angry Robot is starting 2012 off with a BIG bang! Again guys, I'm counting the days!!
