Warren Ellis’ next novel, Normal, is coming later this year from Farrar, Straus & Giroux. The synopsis calls it “a smart, tight, provocative techno-thriller straight out of the very near future.” I especially love the shattered effect they’ve used for the font on the cover. I still need to read Gun Machine, his previous novel, but I feel like he’s an author I’m always likely to enjoy.
The US cover for David Mitchell’s new novel, The Bone Clocks, was revealed today, and I definitely prefer it to the UK version. It tells the story of a runaway English girl with psychic powers. I don’t think this is the follow-up/sequel to The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet that Mitchell discussed, but the connections between his books aren’t necessarily obvious. Looking forward to picking it up later this year!
