With kind permission of casacorona, I'm posting Stephan Martiniere's cover art for Mainspring, which is glorious beyond measure.

I am completely, utterly bowled over. Awestruck.

ETA: Irene Gallo on this cover.

That is one awesome cover, dude. So...if I buy it just for the cover, do I then get your writing as a bonus? *wink*

I love Martiniere's work (having his The Peace War cover on my wall) and I love this one, too. I wonder if he will put this one up for sale...
