Sue Rostoni briefly stopped by the SW.com boards yesterday to toss out a couple nuggets regarding future Fate of the Jedi cover art:
"Remember I had said that Saba would be on the back cover of Fate of the Jedi: VORTEX? Well, it didn't work out. The cover images are posterized from photos, and there aren't any photos of Saba. The artist and designers at Random House tried for over a month to create a Barabel that would work with the style of the covers, with no success.
So... the back cover character on VORTEX is now the stately Kenth Hamner.
We should have a finished cover for CONVICTION to post in about a month. Tahiri will be on the front cover -- don't know yet who's on the back."
Next up for the Fate of the Jedi series: Christie Golden's Allies (book #5) lands in bookstores on May 25th while we have to wait until December for Troy Denning's second addition to the series, Vortex (book #6).
