Cover Reveal For Alan Moore's Million Word Novel
Alan Moore's new novel, which tops out at just over a million words, has a cover:
Erm, just ignore the EW watermark. But the rest is totally real.
If you wanted to play a fun seek and find, I'd look for a devil made out of carpet kidnapping a child, a dude giving someone a naked shoulder ride, and a leprechaun.
The book's description is definitely Moore-esque:
In the half a square mile of decay and demolition that was England’s Saxon capital, eternity is loitering between the firetrap housing projects. Embedded in the grubby amber of the district’s narrative among its saints, kings, prostitutes, and derelicts a different kind of human time is happening, a soiled simultaneity that does not differentiate between the petrolcolored puddles and the fractured dreams of those who navigate them. Fiends last mentioned in the second-century Book of Tobit wait in urine-scented stairwells, the delinquent specters of unlucky children undermine a century with tunnels, and in upstairs parlors laborers with golden blood reduce fate to a snooker tournament.
Currently, Jerusalem is set for publication and release on September 13th, 2016. Plenty of time to moisten your eyeballs and train them up for the marathon of Moore.
