Cover Art - “Home Improvement: Undead Edition” edited by Toni L.P. Kelner & Charlaine Harris

I have stated many times, that I love illustration when it comes to book covers and some of the best are covers for Toni L.P. Kelner and Charlaine Harris’ ongoing series of urban fantasy anthologies (Death’s Excellent Vacation, Many Bloody Returns, Wolfsbane and Mistletoe). Toni sent me the cover to Home Improvement: Undead Edition, the newest anthology with with the usual sterling line-up of contributors. No table of contents is available but it will be soon. It is going to be hard to wait as it doesn’t release until August 2011.

What do you think of this style of cover?

 In an interview with Jonathan Mayberry last week Charlaine said about the book -
Right now, I’m working on my next anthology with Toni L.P. Kelner, my really smart friend, who is a great editor. We’re doing an anthology on home renovations, and it’s called “Home Improvement: Undead Edition.” We’re running a little late on it – the pub date is August 2011 – but it should be out on time. We’re reading the submitted stories, sending them back to the writers with our recommendations, and writing our own stories.
