Frank Comments: I suppose I can understand how this got sorted in with the romance paperbacks, just from the color.  But this is why I look through theromance paperbacks, so I can rescue the books that need it and put them over in the SF&F section.

Frank Comments: This is actually not so terrible a cover.  But given that you’ve got two other covers up for this title, I thought you might enjoy this one.

Michelle Comments: I suspect the figure in the lower half of the cover found their armor just wasn’t enough to protect them from the title pun.  Look at the poor spaceman, crushed by the agony!  This is a follow-up to Matt’s submission of SpaceCops: Kill Station.  I thought maybe you all hadn’t suffered enough, and another one from the series just came into the shop.  Enjoy?

Jessie Comments: I really don’t know what to say about this, but I recommend noticing not only the shag carpet flames but also the subtle nuances of how the model’s head is too small for her body, which is wearing a very modern pair of socks.

Harry Comments: According to the author, this cover was commissioned for another book but somehow ended up on hers. It’s very loosely appropriate: there is a sword, and there is a hero, but he is quite explicitly gay.

Superb! Thanks Harry!

I’m speechless. I asked you for a mermaid, riding a merhorse on an ocean wave with a rainbow coming out of her back. But this… this is so much more. A picture like this should be kept in the Louvre.
