Dorian’s Art Direction: Kali, eh? Goddess of death and destruction? It’s not exactly…well, friendly, now is it? I tell you what. Make the cover pink. Bright pink. That’ll be more…cosy, like.

Art Direction: You know what I see this book about a clairvoyant having visions of murders to be compared to? The movie Fame! So we’ll have the title, with that brilliant font, above something like a giant bat and a shadowy figure onlooking. Can’t you just feel the symbolism?

What the WHAT!Click for full image

Amy Comments: I wish this snap had turned out better but I was getting suspicious glances from the clerk at the bookstore. At any rate, high focus is not entirely necessary to appreciate a fat, be-earringed red Troll doll brandishing a sword whilst riding on an anatomically challenged horse floating above a cloud in front of an angry sun. Winds of Limbo indeed. Also, it says Moorcock *snigger*

Art Direction: Look Moorcock’s covers are always strange. It’s like previous publishers took a handful of amphetamines before putting them to market. All we need is a big 80’s girls head floating in lots of clouds and some people on horses riding into war. No one will suspect any type of solvent abuse… well… until they read the thing!

Contains 100 short stories by Hungarian authors.
Published 2003

My right arm is huge! My left... not so much.Click for full image

This third hardcover reissue contains two novels written by a Hungarian author under English pseudonym. Writing fantasy and science fiction stories under English pen names was very popular in the 90s. And many readers really thought that these writers are from abroad.

Translating the Hungarian title to English was also a strange tradition in these books just like the English pen names for Hungarian writers. You can read inside that, A szellemlt, means, The Spiritseer. Hardcover.

Richard’s Art Direction:
“The hardback didn’t sell well, so we shortened the title, make it more time-travel-y. Can you give us something that evokes “time-loop” for the cover?”

“Hmm, what about a glaiket looking bloke and a sheep?”

“Bam!”
Published 1979

Wow.. many thanks to Richard!
