    Hmmm, someone at Scribner really loves faces and butteflies for SK books.
    Last 3 book covers had a face on the cover with a scripty font and last 2 butterflies.
    I get the cocoon thing is part of SB but come on.

    The cover is Bazaar of Bad Dreams meets Silence of the Lambs with a dash of American Horror Story. Not awful, but a bit too slick like the marketing boys are driving the ship.

    I like the cover. But am wondering if the short excerpt will be in actual print of if it's just an online thing.

    It looks too much like the cover for Bazaar of Bad Dreams for me.

    Be interesting to see what the UK cover will look like. I prefer most of those over the US.

    I just feel like he deserves more respect with the cover to his books when they know they're going to make another butt ton of money. Why can't they put a little more effort into the design than this. It could have been the cover for a fifty shades of grey-knock-off-sequel-number-4 cover. This cover is not worthy of a man who is going to be remembered far far into history.

    I'm not a huge fan of the cover either, and I think you guys pinpointed it. It is very similar to Bazaar of Bad Dreams. Did the same illustrator do both?

    Kudos to Owen for the Dickens reference, (Great Expectations, if I remember correctly). Rather cheeky.
    Heh.

    Seems an interesting premise. I look forward to it.
