Fate of the Jedi cover updates

UPDATE: You’ll see the “First Look” cover. I don’t know why RH Audio used the other one on the site. ~Sue Rostoni

I'll show you OLD!Straight from the VIP thread at the StarWars.com forums Sue Rostoni informs us of some recent updates to the Fate of the Jedi covers.  What does it all mean?  Well keep reading to check it out!

“Remember I had said that Saba would be on the back cover of Fate of the Jedi: VORTEX? Well, it didn’t work out. The cover images are posterized from photos, and there aren’t any photos of Saba. The artist and designers at Random House tried for over a month to create a Barabel that would work with the style of the covers, with no success.

So… the back cover character on VORTEX is now the stately Kenth Hamner.

We should have a finished cover for CONVICTION to post in about a month. Tahiri will be on the front cover — don’t know yet who’s on the back.”

Another thing to note about the Vortex cover is that the current Random House listing for the audio book has changed the cover slightly.  Does this mean that the front cover with Han has been redesigned?  Look for an update as soon as we can confirm it.  Below we’ve placed the covers side by side for your own eyes to compare.
