Sneak Peek: Realms 2 Cover Art

I’ve selected the cover art for Realms: The Second Year of Clarkesworld Magazine:

"Progress on the Horizon" by Aaron Jasinski

We’re just getting started on this one, so we probably won’t start taking preorders until after the holidays.

June Cover Art

It should be fairly obvious by now that I don’t make any effort to tie the Clarkesworld Magazine cover art to a particular story. I like being free from restrictions when it comes to the art I feel like featuring that month. Sometimes, however, it seems like fate intervenes and insists that I pay attention to both.

One of our June stories will be “Clockwork Chickadee” by Mary Robinette Kowal. A couple of days after we bought this story, I was browsing Eli Effenberger’s gallery and found something that screamed “buy me!”  As a result, June will be a month of Clockwork Chickadees and Wind-up Ducks.

Cover Art for Tides from the New Worlds by Tobias Buckell

I just received the finished artwork for Tobias Buckell’s short story collection, Tides from the New Worlds. I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I am with what Brian Dow has provided us with.

Cover Art for the March Issue of Clarkesworld
