Bellatrix Art Direction: “I told you over the phone the title was “The Big Guy”. Never mind. It’s easier to change the title than redo the cover.”

DaveFromGP Comments: As if the creature in the star spangled thong isn’t enough, I find my eyes drawn to the creature at the rear: “What are you gonna do? I’m a giant bat, bitches!”

Kristen Comments: Sorry about the poor quality of the shot…in any case, it looks like the designer decided to throw something from EVERY short story in this collection onto the cover. At least I hope so, because if there were also armed dinosaurs, fighter jets, and authors working on home computers on board the Titanic, history books have been holding out on us.

Wow!
Many thanks to Kristen!

Of all the weird things around us to attack... you choose the tree?!?Click for full image

Jen Comments: A warlock and his robotic horse battle a carnivorous tree who collects stuffed animals and leprechauns, while farting evil smoke into the mouth of a nearby menacing castle. Meanwhile, a knight and his lady ride past, oblivious. Sadly, a surprisingly accurate depiction of the book. And yes, I paid $5 for it.

Insane thanks to Jen!
