Chinese Book Cover for Mort by Terry Pratchett

Isn't this striking? It is the Chinese book cover for Mort. 

Can anyone provide a translation of the writing we see here?   

I would also like to know that name of the artist so I can give them proper credit.



  1. Here's the text:
    "The Death God's Apprentice" (Mort)
    Terry Prachett
    Translated by Hu Shu
    Sichuan Science and Technology Publishing (Sichuan Kexue Jishu Chubanshe)

    I can't track down the name of the artist at this time, but they seem to have done cover art for a number of other Chinese editions, so if you have a source for those I would go with that.
