I have been remiss in letting y’all know of a wonderful present created for you — yes, you! — by David Mattingly, in concert with Toni Weisskopf, Madame the Publisher, of Baen Books.
David, of course, has painted six brilliant Liaden Universe® covers: Saltation, Mouse and Dragon, Ghost Ship, Dragon Ship, Necessity’s Child, and Dragon in Exile. We admire his work greatly, but with this time, he’s outdone himself.
Without further ado, then, we offer you the animated version of the cover for Dragon in Exile, an effort that has variously been described as wonderful, terrifying, cheesy, fabulous, frisking weird, annoying, awesome, great, and stunning.
What do you think? Take a look and let me know.
