Next summer Small Beer Press will publish two novels by Ayize Jama-Everett. Jama-Everett self-published his first novel, The Liminal People, in 2010. After mutual friend Nalo Hopkinson recommended he send a copy to me, it was reprinted in January 2012 by Small Beer.
Jama-Everett’s next two novels, The Liminal War and The Entropy of Bones, will be published in May and August 2015 and are set in the same world as The Liminal People. I wanted these covers to show the propulsive energy and world-spanning breadth of the stories. In the meantime, Jama-Everett had begun working on a comic with John Jennings and suggested him for the covers.
