Recent additions to the Book Cover Gallery

 Short stories, The Providence Rider  Comments Off on Recent additions to the Book Cover Gallery
Feb 062012
 

Once again, I’ve managed to locate cover scans of more books that I didn’t previously know about.  In the ’90s, several of Robert McCammon’s short stories were included in anthology reprints in Finland. The books includes translations of Night Visions 4, Night Visions 8, New Stories from the Twilight Zone, and Hot Blood. In addition, a fifth anthology included a reprint of “The Deep End.”

The covers for all of those have been added to the Book Cover Gallery, along with a second printing ARC for The Providence Rider, an advertisement for a 1992 book signing in Nashville, the cover art for the recent hardcover edition of Illustrated Masques, and the cover of a UK edition of Otto Penzler’s recent Zombies anthology.

Speaking of Illustrated Masques, a trade paperback edition of that book will be published in July 2012 by IDW. The book includes a graphic adaptation of Robert McCammon’s “Nightcrawlers.”
