Trawling through my inbox the other day I found the draft covers that Snowbooks designed for Man O’War, before we settled on the final cover. The first one was interesting if a little sketchy, and I really liked the next two – they really captured the sense of the sea juxtaposed against something looming and technologically monstrous – specifically the oil rigs in the Niger Delta, but in the end I think we made the right choice with the final design.
Man O’War – Evolution Of A Cover Story
Published by Dan Jones
I'm a science fiction writer and podcaster. My debut novel Man O’War was published in 2018 by Snowbooks, and I’ve had a few short stories published here and there. I also host Chronscast, the official podcast of SFF Chronicles, the world's largest science-fiction and fantasy community. Away from writing I work for the UK Space Agency on a programme of space robotics for advanced satellite and planetary exploration technologies. All of which comes in rather handy when coming up with new ideas for science fiction stories. View more posts
