I'd forgotten about that - should be interesting!
I notice that Harry doesn't have his glove on, either. Now I'm really curious!
Warning..if you haven't read Changes possible spoiler below!!!!
Stop here if you don't want to know a detail about Changes.
He's still wearing his duster (disintegrated at end of Changes) and he's still wearing a hat... He never actually got a hat. He just keeps threatening to. So, the details in the cover art may not be a help in guesses about how the book goes.
Update as of MarsCon 2011
Ghost Story will be delayed. It's due to be published in July 2011.
Jim was having some difficulty pushing through some of the plot elements and needed a little more time to finish it up.
So - it's still coming this year, just a few months later than expected.
The hat thing is a joke between him and the artist. Because of it you will always see a hat on the cover and Harry will never actually get a hat.
By the way, I know he works hard and if there's a delay there's a delay, but I may need hospitalization to make it. April seemed a long wait.
Could be worse - he could be GRRM...
There's a short story in Side Jobs set between Changes and Ghost Story, but it doesn't really make the wait any less frustrating.
I will be fine as long as it is released before July Once I know the real date I can start re-reading the series again (well at least 2 weeks before the publication date )
