Well it has come to that time of year again when we at Good Show Sir need to take a break to steal Christmas presents from children, eat an insane amount of other peoples food and of course, get stinking drunk and rant about book covers!

Not to worry though, we’ll be back first thing in the new year with a round up of the best of 2011’s covers!

Here we have some fantastic Hungarian covers sent in by Gabor and River, about 9 months ago! I appologise for keeping them hidden for so long but here they are, all six of them!

Have a great holiday! And again thanks to everyone who visits the site and all the specials ones who leave comments which brighten our days with witty banter!

It's the new family holiday destination, space worm holes.Click for full image

Alessandra Comments: Not, despite all appearances, a parody. It’s a young adult story with paranoid overtones, but as far as Puffin is concerned it’s the Attack of the Stuffed Olive Aliens.
