Zanthar Offs Many WorldsZanthar of the Many Worlds

Bubble BoyZanthar at Moon’s Madness

BummerZanthar at Trip’s End

Lazy EyeZanthar at the Edge of Never

Good Show Sir Comments: One of our good friends at Goodreads sums up Zanthar: “The bad news is that if you want to read an exciting mashup of Doc Savage / Buckaroo Banzai, John Carter of Barsoom, and the yellow peril tales of Fu Manchu, with just a soupçon of Lovecraftian horror, then this book isn’t it.”

1. Jeff Jones runs out of paint

2. Jeff Jones remembers he can’t paint feet

3. Jeff Jones eats the brown acid

4. Jeff Jones takes the day off

Thanks to Andre for sending these in!

Not to be confused with this or this or this.

RachelJ Art Direction: “This is no ordinary novel. Not even a “A Novel”. This is… “A MOSAIC”. I want every element of the cover– title, subtitle, font, artwork– to blend harmoniously into one vast, resounding “WTF”.

Do it justice, my boy.”

[Note: It’s not my camera. The cover image is just really, really dark and murky and it’s hard to tell what anything is.]
