So I was like playing this game…for my computer…. and then role-playing it later…. and like all we did was like, totally drink beer and fight elves. I’d like some huge tankards and fringes please!

Just love the guy on the left… his hair is amazing……
“First novel by 14-year-old publishing sensation”
Artist: hehe im gonna make his cover so awful nobody will buy his book. it’s gonna look really 2D and lifeless and the people on the cover will all have mullets… even the manish looking chick
evidence: only one book on amazon.com, no wikipedia entry, google search “ned resnikoff” returns only 6,190 hits. Next stop Obscurityville, population…you
Arrrghhhh ! Why is the guy (or is it a “butch” chick) on the right wearing a Dalek costume without the helmet.
This cover has to be 20 years old. You might recognize it as “Tales From the Vulgar Unicorn,” a collection of Thieves’ World novels released by the Science Fiction Book Club back in the day (like 1985? 86?). Way to recycle the artwork there guys.
Hi Susano and welcome to the site! Great memory, you’ve pretty much got it in one there. It certainly is a re-used cover – why, just whyyyyy? Thanks for the heads-up. Tags now updated!
Quest announcement: Title, author and publication of the book. A virtual Level 8 Chicken Of The Infinite goes to whoever gets the goods first.
No way! So maybe the story behind the Fool’s Tavern cover is more like “Hey, cool idea: use a cover from before the kid was born. He’ll never know! Copies shifted, money saved, job done. Golf course?”
I came to say exactly what Susano said. The minute I saw it I had to go search for the “Vulgar Unicorn” cover to show my husband. I have a copy of that one. Not sure I’d want a copy of this one…lol.
Great list. We had fun going through them all.
I think this was on the cover of a D&D game I saw in a bargain bin at CompuSmart in, say, 1991.
I can only imagine these are actually the publishers clinking mugs for how quickly they shoved this out the door.
