Received the following intelligence from a Knowledgeable Source:
On the Razor’s Edge will publish next July. I saw some very cool-looking art the other day. Not quite final yet,
As regards the cover, I sense a Running Motif (see above). I can make a wild guess regarding the background, but suspect that the foreground may feature a nicely rounded space ship. Betting line forms on the left. But let us recall the words of Ravn Olafsdottr in Lion's Mouth:
Attend my tale and learnWill red be the dominant color this time? Inquiring minds want to know.
Why once great cities burn!
O Harper, know what treachery abides
In hearts of those who once you thought as friend.
How like a fang, a serpent’s tooth, they wound!
O Shadow! Think on what you say;O Harper! Think you that it is but pride
For how can enemies betray?
Affronted by Gidula’s dire deed,
To find myself by my own trust impugned?
O Shadow! Think howe’er you must.O Harper! Know that foes do constant bide.
Who ever in a foe did trust?
And on their constancy one may depend.
Oh heart and mind to whom I was attuned!
O Shadow! Think you any wouldO Harper! Do not seek to shift the point
Inflict the pain a comrade could?
Of my arrow from the heart that it intends,
Or stay my shears from that which it must prune.
O Shadow! Prune as you decide,
For in our joint affairs we are allied.
