Zoiks! I’ve some work to do! I’m going to add artist/designer credits were possible – so bear with me! (This is an ancient cry to a bear god to sustain you in times of trouble)

    Yes, that’s enough. For the record, I was going to propose Guo Jian’s cover for Vol. 1 of the Chinese edition of Mists of Avalon (enlarged artwork at Deviantart). It’s a subject well suited to Guo’s stained-glass style. As for books published in 2016, he has the rest of that series and The Library at Mount Char. The latter is amazingly detailed, which you can’t see at thumbnail size, but the overall composition is strong enough that it still looks good reduced.

    Oh, for the love of Ursus Major … you and your bear gods did not give Declan Finn enough time to mount a campaign. Poor fellow has been shut out again. 🙂

    The artist for The Aeronaut’s Windlass is Chris McGrath. The artist for the regular edition of Ancillary Mercy is John Harris, the artist for the hardcover is listed as Lauren St. Onge. The cover artist for Son of the Black Sword is Larry Elmore. Those are the only ones I know/recognise off hand.
