Thank you all for these beautiful and amazing wallpapers. Is there any way that we can have the actual artwork as wallpapers? It isn't that I'm ungrateful, I just really like the artwork and not only do I think they'd look better on my desktop, but would also look better being used as screensavers.

Agreed, I saw the video of the Lord of Chaos art from last year, and the part not on the front cover is fantastic. It deserves to be shown off.

If there are posters availbile, i'd be the first in line!

Thanks, Freelancer!

Necrosage: We tried to make the art full-bleed but there was no way to come up with a crop for them all that looked decent. (Not to mention, actullay usable as a wallpaper.) It seemed best to make one uniform look for the whole run. Maybe at the end we can take a few favorites (that do crop well) and make a few alternates.

Faiz: Hmm...you remind me. We should probably offer an alternate on that one up front. *Sends memo to self*

Is it just me, or does the snake eating tail image in the red background look overtly felacio-istic? All I see when I look at the wall paper, is... well.. something a bit more expicit than a snake eating its own tail.

Irene - just wanted to say again how awesome these are. Have had this one as my wallpaper at work ever since you released, and you don't know how happy it makes me to see it every so often throughout my day! Can't wait to work through the rest as you release!

no disrespect to Tor for trying to do something new with the series' presentation, but these new covers are the definition of bland. i feel so unexcited and detached looking at them. there were plenty of flaws to sweet's covers, but i love them for the way they explode with color and life. these reissues are so blah. i would never purchase one.
