It's not secret that I loved Mark Hodder's first book, The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack (read me gush about it here) and so by extension it should come as no surprise that I've been seeking out any news on the forthcoming second book, The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man, the second Burton & Swinburne. I happened upon this. This cover art is the one that will be displayed on the Pyr (US) edition of the book (UK info can be found here). Already the art Jon Sullivan had created for the first novel was great but I think he has outdone himself with this second piece of art. It is at once grabbing, mysterious and certainly makes me want to pick the book up (though less would convince me, so this might not mean much). The Curious Case of the Clockwork Man will be published in the UK by Snowbooks this coming March and will also appear from Pyr in the US at the same time.

Thanks to Aiden at A Dribble of Ink for posting the artwork.
