Personally I'm a fan of the larger format for the novels. A lot of what I read at the minute tends to be larger, and I just enjoy it more than the little ones.

The TCF cover is horrible. Like most of Titans cover art, it comes across as cheap and lazy. If they aren't going to put even the slightest effort into the cover art then I wish they would just go with a blank cover and title only.

I still buy the books because I'm a fan and the story is the real meat of the product not the cover. It doesn't stop me from wishing they didn't look like photoshopped garbage though.

That's an interesting suggestion actually .

I’d actually prefer the larger format but I tend to buy the books the day they come out so I end up going to the bookstore as soon as it opens and all I’ve ever seen is the mass market paperback size on the shelves.

I can understand that. To be fair I just get whatever Titan sends me to review. Fortunately, it's mostly been the size I like but I got the smaller one with Sea of Sorrows and brought the larger size once I saw it in store.

I want hardbacks, with good covers, now.

Wow 512 pages! That’s by far the longest Alien novel. This may also explain why there’s not the mass market paperback version in the initial release.

I'd love an autographed hardback of Alex White's The Cold Forge, with a decent cover, though.

That long? Nice! Hope everything is fleshed out well and we have a nice compelling story on our hands. Excited for this.

Haven't read too much about this one yet, is it supposed to be set in old days?

I have already pre-ordered it, so I hope its good.

I think I'm right in saving it's set on another planet, but one where they only have primitive technology (i.e. swords and shields).

It's not 'the old days' (quite the opposite) and yes it's not Earth.
