Sara Douglass - one of Australia's premier female fantasy authors has had something of an image change at HarperCollins, with her cover art being more iconic and less figurative. This is a clever move, specifically because this is the direction a lot of publishers seem to be taking their fantasy covers, certainly in the UK. The cover of Douglass's latest novel The Twisted Citadel, book two in her Darkglass Mountain trilogy reminds me of Orbit's Robert Jordan covers. No bad thing, given Douglass' work will definitely appeal to Jordan's audience.
