Hey Chung Kuo fans… is anybody really good at WordPress and PHP? It looks like this site has been the target of some malicious activity. There are a bunch of new files in my WordPress directories with jibberish code, and some of the existing files were overwritten with some craziness. See screenshot for example. I’ve been able to bring it back online but there are still a few things that are off.
If you think you might be able to help, shoot me a message at ofgiftsandstones [at] gmail [dot] com.
Update: After a manual restore of all the core WP files, it’s looks like I’m back up and running with no issues. What a pain, though. Ugh!
Here you go: the first Chung Kuo covers from the forthcoming re-re-release. Click on each image for the full size version. I think they look better together than they do individually and will stand beautifully on the bookshelf (or e-reader).
The new cover designs for the first eight books Chung Kuo books have been completed. The cover for Daylight on Iron Mountain was released on David Wingrove’s Facebook page earlier today, and a new cover will be released daily through Saturday. Each cover features the ouroboros created by Jim Burns and will feature a different color. The Daylight cover is below, and when all eight our out, I’ll post all eight. Mr. Wingrove did let me know that he’d like everybody’s feedback, writing, “I think they’re stunning, and classy and immensely collectable, but let’s hear from you guys. Is the New Look one you like? Let me know. ”
The first eight books will be released in trade paperback and e-book this spring, and Book 9, Monsters of the Deep, will be released shortly thereafter. That’ll be the first Chung Kuo release in three years!
