Eek! Goblins!

What with it being Hallowe'en and all, I thought this might be a good day to unveil the cover artwork for my next book, GOBLINS.  It won't be published until next April, but is already available for pre-order on where it's described thus: 

A wild world of magical creatures and heroic adventure from the extraordinary imagination of Philip Reeve. The squabbling goblins who live in the great towers of Clovenstone spend their time fighting and looting. Only clever young Skarper understands that dark magic created by a vanquished sorcerer is rising again. From the lands of men come fortune-seekers - and trolls, giants, cloud-maidens, boglins, swamp monsters, tree-warriors and bloodthirsty goblins are swept into a fabulous magical conflict to thrill all fantasy fans...

It's also, hopefully, quite funny - closer in spirit to Larklight than to my Mortal Engines or Fever Crumb books.  I think David Semple's goblins capture the tone beautifully.

(For some reason the Amazon listing describes GOBLINS as a hardback, but actually I think it's going to be a fancy, large-format paperback.)

Happy Hallowe'en!
