    You’re quite the feller
    But your crystal
    Has only gone and missed all
    My sciatica paaaaaaiiiiin!!!”

    I think she’s trying to catch a high-up ping-pong ball in that vase..?

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @TW: needs ‘moon’ tag.

    If that’s tourmaline, which it most resembles, then she’s holding at least (1200 cc x 3 g/cc)= 3.6 kg of crystal, balanced precariously on her fingertips. Nonsense!

    And that, my friends, is the new Apple iPhone 20 advert.

    She’s Crystal Singer, futuristic Coal-Miner’s Daughter.

    If it were me, I would have touched the mysterious crystal with my FREAKING ROBOT ARM.

    New age and old school alien probes on the same cover.

    Worst. Air guitar power chord. Ever.

  11. anon Says:

    That’s one heavy bubble her head is in.

    @AR: crystal meth singer, natch.

  15. Stevie T Says:

    Oh well. Dead Stuff beat me to it at no. 14. This was the first cover that ever made me think that, though…

    Also gravity must be pretty interesting on this planet, that she can hold that pose and not flip over backwards.

  16. RachelJ Says:

    @StevieT. Actually, I think the artist has caught her mid-flip.

  17. Jaouad Says:

    If she’s been trying to balance the title on that crystal, she’s in for a nasty surprise.

  18. Tat Wood Says:

    I always thought there was a definite article in the title but its just “Crystal Singer”, which sounds like a single mum from New Jersey.

  19. anon Says:

    @Tat Wood: …or a bedazzled sewing machine the employee of the month gets to use.

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @anon: is that what’s on her right arm, then?

  21. Anna T. Says:

    She’s clearly having a seizure and needs medical attention, STAT!

  22. anon Says:

    @DSWBT: I think that’s the bedazzler she’s trying to fit the crystal in
    …and crying out in frustration because of it.

  23. random Donna Says:

    Hey, I have all three books in this series! This is the only one with a GSS-worthy cover, however.
    And, no, that’s not a tourmaline. That’s a magical space crystal with amazing and magical space powers, doncha know.
