Ooooooh nice!
They are being re-edited and re-issued aren't they? I'm thinking maybe I should hold out for that before starting the series.

There seems to be a lot of that kind of stuff going on with Hugh's books, but I really don't know any specifics. For instance I really like the below cover and it's been around for a while, but I've never seen it actually used.

Several people contributed fan-made covers for some of his books when they were first getting popular (early 2012 or so) and he posted them on his website. I don't think most of them were ever used, although he may have talked to some of the artists for later covers, I am not sure.

That's it exactly. Jasper sent me that WOOL cover as a gift. He also sent one for my first Molly book. I commissioned him for three more Molly covers, which he's just wrapping up. And when I moved from LSI to CreateSpace for my printing, I decided to update the covers with Jasper's art. My covers sucked in comparison.

Hugh...I've seen the Jasper Schreurs covers for:

Wool Omnibus
Parsona Rescue
Land of Light
Fight for Peace

...but I haven't seen a Jasper Schreurs cover for Blood of Billions! Is there really one and if there is would you share it with us here?

So the upshot is - no re-editing, no reason to hold off reading?

Cool The Blood of Billions

Quoted from hughhowey.com

The Blood of Billions
Posted on May 29, 2013 by Hugh C. Howey

Jasper Schruers has completed his 4-part masterpiece of Molly Fyde covers. Here’s the audiobook cover for The Blood of Billions. The book will have the same cover, but rectangular. I should have all four to show together in a couple of weeks. Can’t wait!

It's been a while since I read Molly Fyde (great series!). I assume that is Kat and Walter on the cover? I am pretty sure I remember that scene.

Like all those new covers!
