Lord of Chaos E-Book Cover Art


I love what Tor is doing by having different artist do new and original covers for each Wheel of Time novel for the e-book release (links to all here). So far the art has been great and I’ve really enjoyed the commentary about each release. But with the Lord of Chaos cover by Greg Manchess Tor stepped out and went beyond. They embraced technology and created something new with the cover art. And it’s awesome. Way to go Tor. Way to go Irene. And make sure you watch the video – it’s overlaid with music and audio from the audio book.

Now if I can only figure out a way to post the animated cover art here. (edit: thanks Kevin)

Much better than the 'pugilist' LOC cover.

You can copy the embed code from the tor.com post to get the nifty flash animation on your blog:
