This list will only be books I’ve read and own, and books I’ve read sorta of recently, so if I leave some of your favourites off, my apologies friend. Since I own most, or parts of these series, these are my photos.
1) Fated (Alex Verus #1) by Benedict Jacka
These are beautiful. At least the initial release of the covers. I’m not so hip on the next addition. When I read the most recent book, I ordered it on amazon and I was sent the second addition, and wasn’t very happy that I got the next one. That’s besides the point.
2) Rivers of London (Peter Grant #1) by Ben Aaronovitch
This one has gotten quite famous lately. Even here in Deutschland, in the always limited section of english books at the local shops, they have them. Good sign people are buying them.
If ya take a look closely you see that the map is actually built with the locations and names of the city, as well as locations that exist in the fictional world created by Ben arranovitch.
3) Leviathan Wakes (Expanse, #1) by James S.A. Corey
Well actually all the books. They are so beautiful. I love books when they’re published a little bigger then normal, with slightly bigger text and enough whitespace to know that someone at the publishing house has a mind for typography. You flip through quick, you feel like a champ for getting through so much in a sitting, and since its a big book it makes you feel like you can take on epic tomes of bad-assery books.
With the recent news there is a tv show, I’m gonna go ahead and try to catch up on these by the end of the year. I don’t normally like making commitments, I keep 20 or so unread books around so I can choose by the mood I feel, but this is an exception.
4) Sandman Slim (Sandman Slim #1) by Richard Kadrey
I just recently picked these up, and I’m hooked. If I hadn’t already picked out a bunch of books to read for the next month or so I’d probably have finished the shit out of this series. The covers are classic B Movie style. The second one, Kill the Dead even has crease marks as if a kid had folded it up to hang later. You gotta look close, but its a touch I really appreciate.
