Adam Robots

By Adam Roberts | June 22, 2012

That thing Keats said about a thing of beauty? It applies here.

This is the latest iteration of the cover for my forthcoming Collected Short Stories, which Gollancz are putting out next year. It is, in a nutshell, yet another blinder played by the genius people at Blacksheep. I'm very conscious how lucky I have been with my cover art, and each of the last few (all Blacksheep designs) have upped the bar. I didn't think it was possible to get any better than the cover for Jack Glass, but this comes close to topping it.

    I've always thought Blacksheep rocked. Even when I was a little boy... but the cover art is every bit as original and striking as the actual sheep.

    Seriously though, I really do think your cover art grabs the eye with its originality. People's perception tends to go numb with all the typical monotony of vast bookshop shelves. That's a psycho/neurological fact, believe it or not.
