The Cover I Can't Show You

This is the cover for my upcoming MechWarrior Dark Age novel Trial by Chaos that will be released next year. Unfortunately, I can't let you see it.

The cover art (which is quite nice, by the way) depicts a new unit in the MechWarrior miniatures game which will be released at about the same time as the book, and the nice folks at WizKids don't want to spoil the surprise for dedicated game players.

So it's all classified. The art. The cover. I suspect I'm not even supposed to tell you what the unit is called, or what kind of unit it is, so I'm not going to.

Nyah, nyah!


  1. Bah. Guess I'll just have to wait for my usual source of Amazon to come through. :p

  2. I'm assuming that at some point, in advance of the release, they'll have to send the cover to Amazon and other on-line sellers. Of course, they can blow the secret any time they choose to.

    But my editor specifically asked me to keep it under wraps when she sent me the cover, so I have to do what the boss tells me!

  3. Oohh.... I think I remember you talking about that one when I was over there watching that most excellent episode of "Stargate SG-1"...

    ... "It's a—" makes quotes with fingers "—blast door."
