Future Classics from Gollancz

Keen to experiment further with putting distinctly non-genre covers on science fiction novels, Gollancz are re-issuing eight modern SF classics with covers that deliberately say very little, not even the author's name or the title of the book. They are:

Richard Morgan, Altered Carbon
Greg Egan, Schild's Ladder
Alastair Reynolds, Revelation Space
Christopher Priest, The Separation
Paul McAuley, Fairyland
Dan Simmons, Hyperion
Greg Bear, Blood Music
Stephen Baxter, Evolution

Thumbnails of all the covers can be seen here, though editor Malcolm Edwards says they do not quite do justice to the covers themselves. Slightly larger images and book details can be seen by clicking on the covers.

The cover designs for the Future Classics from Gollancz:
