News: Book Cover for The Book of Doom by Barry Hutchison

I saw Barry Hutchison tweet this image yesterday and I really wanted to share it with you. It is The Book of Doom, the follow-up story to his brilliant The 13th Horseman. Notice I didn't say sequel - it is part of his Afterworlds series, and there may be the occasional cameo appearance by characters we have already met, or references to events or items mentioned in The 13th Horseman, but it is not a continuation of that story. I love this cover - what is there not to love about a devil in gold hotpants, purple legwarmers and rollerskates? And naturally, it is by David Wyatt, illustrator of a growing number of HarperCollins book covers. Sadly, the book isn't due out until February 2013, but if it is anywhere as good as The 13th Horseman it will be well worth the wait.
