Covering Covers: The Alchemist and The Executioness [Print Editions!]

Do you want to experience Paolo Bacigalupi's and Tobias Buckell's shared world novellas but only consume media in a format you can afford to throw at the wall?

Well good news! Subterranean Press announced today that they've secured the rights to print The Alchemist and The Executioness in all the gravity demanding glory inherent in a pair of signed hardcovers.

Cover Artist: J. K. Drummond

Now I hoped that Subterranean would put them together in a back to back edition like those old pulp SF doubles but with covers this good I can't complain. (Even if both characters look younger and healthier than their stories would actually indicate). Even better, the blurb on Subterranean's website also promises interior illustrations, something I consider to be severely underrated.

I've actually known that they were publishing print editions ever since I received some unexpected ARCs earlier this summer. That being the case, I've already read AND listened to these novellas and a review is just around the corner. If you want to know more about the story, check out the original story about the exclusive audiobook.

The Alchemist and The Executioness will be out from Subterranean Press in January of 2011 from these two:

I had to show this one more time...
