The cover for the finished version of Finch is just about complete–just futzing around with the blurbs and whatnot.
Speaking of which, this blurb just came in from the awesome Tad Williams:
“VanderMeer’s FINCH is…well, it’s FAREWELL MY LOVELY if Philip Marlowe worked for the pod-people while snacking on Alice’s Wonderland mushrooms. It’s NAME OF THE ROSE if Sean Connery’s character was a conglomeration of self-aware spores instead of a medieval monk. It’s THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD if all the agents were also testing psychedelic drugs and hung out in a post-apocalyptic Emerald City instead of Eastern Europe. More importantly, FINCH is a really good book–exciting, dark, suspenseful, and wonderfully weird.” – Tad Williams
