It’s still only September 2012, but I am already looking forward to a couple of Hard Case Crime releases for 2013--in large measure because of their exceptional cover illustrations.
Seduction of the Innocent, the third entry in Max Allan Collins’ series of Jack Starr historical thrillers, is set to reach bookstores next February, with artwork by the prolific Glen Orbik. Orbik is responsible as well for the painting that fronts Stephen King’s forthcoming Joyland, displayed above. However, Hard Case editor Charles Ardai tells me that artist “Robert McGinnis is also doing one [for Joyland], which will be revealed--along with how we will use two covers--in due course.” King’s novel should be out in June 2013.
These will both be beautiful additions to my bookshelves!
