My books are currently published in six languages. Each publisher designs its own covers and they’re wildly different. Seeing one for the first time is like opening a Christmas present. Wow, look at this! A brand new book! Pretty neat trick, considering I wrote it. Here are the covers for the various editions of China Lake.
UK edition – original and reissue covers:
Spanish, Russian, German and Swedish editions are soon to come. So is the US edition. I’m looking forward to them all.
(Note: the Christmas present analogy only works with new editions, not copies taken from my bookshelf and wrapped in shiny paper. However, the time my son actually gave me China Lake for Christmas, I was highly amused.)
