New King cover revealed at last



It's been one of the best kept secrets of the 2009 publishing year, but the cover art for Stephen King's new novel, Under the Dome, has finally been revealed. And it's a goody. While a huge fan of his writing, King's book covers have often been underwhelming, and that's being kind. His name and the title are always so very prominent it leaves little room for inspiring, interpretive art. There are exceptions and these include Cujo, Pet Sematary, Misery, Delores Claiborne, Bag of Bones, and On Writing.

Now, after a career that spans more than 35 years -- and 50+ novels -- finally a book cover emerges worthy of a King. I love it. The muted dusky colors suggest twilight, and that sleepy little town under glass, what has Stephen King been doing his whole career but putting sleepy little towns under a magnifying glass to expose the horrors that lurk beneath? Great stuff.

What say you?
Look for Under the Dome at Regina Public Library!
