Yep... that's the professional standard I look for... no one said 'ever'. Click for full image

Good Show Sir Comments: On the title page it says something along the lines of “this cover can not be used without written consent from the owners.” Well, Thomas… This is how I feel about that!

    Please support the work of Wynghorran Castle by learning more about the history of the Bear Kingdom, adopting a Teddy Bear, or purchasing a copy of Magic at teddybearworld.org.uk/page15.htm

    Peter Bull’s favourite book? I don’t recall Little Ted on Jackanory. Must have been a quiet story.

  3. rev Says:

    I’m confused by this. Is it a book? Am I supposed to read it? Or is it a joke cover and the real book is a worn copy of My Friend Flicka?
    Is it hollowed out and filled with secret sneaky chocolates?
    That bear doesn’t tell me anything.

    Sticking it to The Man! Way to go, Good Show Sir! I just turned this cover into a torrent and uploaded it to The Pirate Bay. No Pooh Bear dictator is going tell me what to do.

    … and I’m rating this cover a “zero”! Cause that’s the way I roll!

    This looks like a self-publish deal, Mr. Weal! It’s a fine practice, but is this book for real?
    @DSWBT – you are a master at the anagram!
    For you and for all:

    Look, that bear is the most foul-tempered, vicious little mammal you’ve ever set your eyes on! He can LEAP…!

    I see your Judas Priest and raise you Mozart the extremely annoying teddy bear.

  9. SI Says:

    @Fred… what did I just watch… why is that table cloth speaking and moving teddy bears around!!! And why does it sound marginally drunk!

  10. fred Says:

    @SI…I would guess there is 110% chance alcohol was involved.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: is ‘cornet’ a euphemism…? Do I want to know?

  13. Jeff Vader Says:

    What manner of wynghorrors lurk therein?

    Also, I think we need a “photomontage” tag right away.

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    So it’s like Harry Potter only with voyeuristic bears?

  15. Tor Mented Says:

    In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight. A Wynghorran, a Wynghorran …

  16. Tat Wood Says:

    The only way that cover image is entirely the author’s copyright is if he is actually a teddy-bear and went to Bavaria to take a selfie.

    If so, I’m intrigued and might buy it but only if it’s his autobiography.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: They’ve just ruled live animals can’t copyright/own photos, so I suspect badly-puppeted drunken teddy bears can’t either.

    It’s even worse when you enlarge it and look at the join where teddy’s been pasted in. Someone’s not very good at MS Paint.

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Bear-wielding!

    Or maybe the bear is wielding a book… I dunno, TW came up with a new tag just for my last cover, I feel obligated to find more instances.

  19. Innocent Bystander Says:

    Wow. Just wow. As a medieval history major and bear collector I can’t even…

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    For 7.25 quid, they’ll ship you a used teddy bear that someone else has left with them. WTF? This tome is only 6.64.

    Or at least they used to — there hasn’t been an update to the page in a year and a half.

    @IB (19): I can’t even as well, so I’m glad that a professional in both categories such as yourself feels the same way.

    I miss DSWBT. When I clicked on his link in #11, a sidebar question wondered “If the Nazis had dinosaurs, could they have won WWII?” and I’m sure he could have enlightened us on that too. (Answers on page all said No.)
