    Sort of hearkens back to the golden age of Piers Anthony's "Cluster" and "Bio of a Space Tyrant" series.

    This is stunning. I love how the animal faces are appealing and menacing at the same time. I just can't stop looking at it. The design is excellent.

    Congrachoolations -- another winner! I personally don't like character faces on covers (I like to imagine them for myself), but this is very intriguing. Can't wait to get my paws on this...
