James Annal  art director at Macmillan Publishers commissioned Larry Rostant to produce these wonderful cinematic and striking covers for the top British Sci-fi writer  Peter F. Hamilton's  new  title and hefty backlist.

These beautiful stylish covers,  are very much of the film poster  and video game genre ...

Larry Rostant is well known for producing stunning photographic covers in the science fiction and fantasy areas of publishing  and so this was the ideal commission and a great tribute to his work - James Annal who produced the design  has included unique and stunning spines, which are made of  stripes of colours which should help make the books stand out from others on the shelves!

Under a microscope all becomes clear, the dust was actually thousands of WEREFLEAS, travelling across the galaxy, turning planets and asteroids into hairy, scary, werewolf -infested places with their cursed bite! Can Bob save the Moon from the same fate, especially if he's feeling hair-raisingly unusual himself? Fortunately, Barry is there to help him, canine-to-canine!
