TRIGGERNOMETRY by Stark Holborn – COVER REVEAL
Howdy! I’m Stark Holborn, author of Nunslinger, and I’m delighted to reveal the cover for my brand new novella, Triggernometry.
Triggernometry is an alt-history western, taking place in a world where mathematicians are dangerous outlaws. It mixes the grit of the west with a cast of mathematicians from across history to create a truly unique and unforgettable adventure…
“A wild, rollicking and endlessly-surprising tale of low lives and higher mathematics. I loved it!”
– Lavie Tidhar, award-winning author of By Force Alone, Unholy Land and Central Station
When it came to designing a cover for Triggernometry I knew my first choice was going to be Philip Harris, the artist who created the original artwork for Nunslinger. I love his style, and was keen to keep continuity between books. Luckily, he was more than up for working together again! I sent him a folder of inspiration images – everything from western landscapes to mathematical instruments – and let him go wild with the rest. I wanted something that would recall the black-and-white, engraved covers of the old penny western adventures, and I’m absolutely delighted with the result. Thank you Phil!
“I hereby arrest the fugitive “Mad” Malago Browne for murder, arson, robbery and acts of pernicious arithmetic against the Capitol States. Also the fugitive Pierre “Polecat” de Fermat, for sundry of the same.”
In the Western States, it doesn’t pay to count your blessings.
Professor Malago Browne, once the most notorious mathematician in the west, has been trying to leave her outlaw past behind and lead a quiet life. But all of that changes when her former partner – the deadly and capricious Pierre de Fermat – shows up with a proposition of a lifetime.
One last job, one last ride: a heist big enough to escape the tyranny of the Capitol forever.
With a misfit crew of renegade topologists and rebel statisticians, Browne and Fermat prepare to take on the Capitol in the crime of the century. Little do they know the odds are stacked against them…
Triggernometry will be released as an ebook on 8th April. You can find more information here.
