Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Re: Shadowheart Cover

I think it will be some months down the road before we see the UK cover art. The UK edition will be out a bit later in January 2011.

Re: Shadowheart Cover

That might be my favorite cover of the four - though the original covers with Barrick/Briony on the front/back were awesome too

Re: Shadowheart Cover

I don't really have anything wrong with the Shadowmarch covers, but it seems like there's hardly anything differentiating the play/rise/heart covers. They're all just different angles of Southmarch castle/different time of day. I wonder what the reasoning is behind that decision?

Re: Shadowheart Cover

Only the first cover depicts Shadowmarch castle. The second is the city of the Autarch. The third and fourth I am not so sure. One of them is the Qar fortress.

the 3rd is definitely Qul-na-Qar (http://www.toddlockwood.com/galleries/n … aqar.shtml) and i think maybe the shadowheart cover (http://www.suvudu.com/suvudumedia/lockw … wheart.jpg) should also depict Qul-na-Qar from the seaside or its the changed Southmarch Castle after the incursion of the qar, but not 100% sure because no one knows yet how the shadowmarch saga ends ^^
