On the theme of reusing other media, did anyone notice when Neal Asher's German publishers used the artwork from PARADOX as one of his covers? How many people noticed that the running guy only has one arm?

Any of his covers you want to swipe? Now's the time...

Excellent idea, and I think I like the scorpion cover best. Now all I have to do is write something with a scorpion in it...

Thanks, Lori! I know just what you mean, about liking a book even when it's not the kind you normally read. I'm really not into horror fiction (though you wouldn't think it from Bone Song and Black Blood) but I like Stephen King's books a great deal

Thanks for being observant... I have the original cover painting hanging on my living room wall, which always cheers me up when I look at Tom running.

are you going to write a nother book to black blood?

i loved bone song and black blood but was disapointed in how it ended, black blood.

If you mean the cliffhanger (after tidying up all the loose ends that were supposed to be tied up in that book)... well, perhaps that was not the best way to end it when there was no guarantee of writing a sequel.

No plans to write another book in that series. I'd like to, mind you... but not enough interest from publishers.
