TANGLED UP IN BLUE
Cover art for a novel by Joan Vinge that takes place on the same world as THE SNOW & SUMMER QUEENS. Michael's unusually simplified palette and great use of texture combined with the costuming should have made a great cover idea, but it was the result of too much micromanaging at the book company. He said, "A cover decided through compromise is rarely a top level effort."
Tangled Up In Blue
Joan D. Vinge returns to Tiamat, the world of her Hugo Award-winning novel The Snow Queen and its bestselling sequel The Summer Queen.. Set during the time of The Snow Queen, BZ Gundhalinu is a by-the-book "Blue" on the trail of high corruption within the force. When a police raid goes horribly awry, BZ finds himself teamed up with Nyx LaisTree, a hard-nosed cop with no respect for the rules, and Devony Seaward, a beautiful hooker with a heart of gold. Together these three must fight the corruption of Tiamat and try to expose it before they all end up dead. This novel marks the exciting return to the much-loved Snow Queen Universe. While taking place during events in The Snow Queen, this novel is a stand-alone masterpiece of noir suspense--taking a story you think you know, and showing you just how deep and vast the waters really run.
