I'm a young Dan Aykroyd, and this is my star wars blaster. Click for full image

Tom Noir Comments: La de da. Just out for a jaunty, inconspicuous stroll in my black leathers and goggles. Pay no attention to the laser blaster held awkwardly behind my back!

David’s Art Direction: I was up late last night and I’m getting tired, just draw me an alien ostrich on E and a beautiful naked woman. …  What do you mean that’s gratuitous? Oh alright, I need sleep, give her a bra then—BUT NO PANTIES!

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.

Alessandra’s Art Direction: I want a couple of giant kids, way too big for the architecture they’re in. I want the architecture to be real crazy, too, to make no sense in terms of scale or perspective or anything. Make the kids skinny, but make their heads real big and make sure the girl has lots of eye makeup and styling mousse. Dress ‘em in brightly-colored vaguely medievalish clothes like you see on Robin Hood on TV, or at Medieval Times or something.

Corwin Comments: Where to start… A truly wretched color scheme with a bright pink neon title, two title fonts that go in four different directions. Then the rest of the cover is way too busy including a blue shark, a green sub with pink polka dots, and a man hole cover. And lest we forget, the story has a computerized Ayn Rand as one of its characters.

Flying shark!
Many thanks to Corwin.

Mother.. did you come into the dark forest in your dressing gown again?!!Click for full image

Fantasy readers can’t think for themselves! They need one thing, hyper realism! It’s a phrase I’m coining. So well have a guy in his pajamas and an old women in a dressing gown staring at a magical glowing orb in the palm of the dudes hand. All set within a dark forest.
