From tor.com, this cover reveal:
And the reason this makes me happy is that I saw this artwork several years ago at a convention . . . not sure which one, but I think maybe a World Fantasy convention . . . and I just loved it.
Then I found out the artist was actually writing a book around this image. Very cool!
Now I see from this post that Manchess is also including interior full-color art as well. Click through to take a look!
This book is coming out from Saga, which says: Above the Timberline is “a stunning and cinematic combination of art and novel.”
The book description starts out:
When it started to snow, it didn’t stop for 1,500 years. The Pole Shift that ancient climatologists talked about finally came, the topography was ripped apart and the weather of the world was changed—forever….
Who knows how good this story is? But polar bears as pack animals! And there are spaceships, it looks like, and who knows what all. And apparently 120 pages of artwork. What an interesting concept, and congrats to Saga for taking a chance on something so unusual.
