Look, over there! Another stereotype to join our party!Click for full image

A hunky swordsman, an old Robin Hood character, and a strange female sorceress. Now, because our trio are wanting to keep themselves undercover, give the hunky one a Zorro mask to cover his eyebrows and nose. No-one will ever know his true identity. No-one!

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 4.35 out of 10)

    Looks like he should have moved his sword a little to the left to make the top of that A.

    another movie star look-alike, this time its Kurt Russell.

    You do have to wonder if the eye mask really conceals his identity.

  3. little mi Says:

    Maybe its not a mask and really someone has snuck up in the night and painted it on when he was asleep. That would explain why he’s so pissed off.

    Is it just me, or is that sorceress enjoying her staff, just a little too much?

  5. SI Says:

    Interesting.. and slightly disturbing point Roses.

    I also get the funny feeling the guy on the right just accidentally walked behind them at the time the picture was taken.. or drawn… you know what I mean.

  6. Roses Says:

    What you think the masked man was weilding his sword for her benefit and elderly Robin Hood interrupted?

    That’s just sleazy Si. Sleazy.

    Note to Self: look book up on Amazon.

    “Take that Salvatore! I stab your surname right through!”

    “Hurry up and finish the painting, my arm is really hurting… who the hell is this guy who just walked in? … well draw him anyway i guess”

    I own a total of 2 R.A Salvador books and have read neither. Again, just one of those authors who was always on the list but never made it to the top…

    “I’m going to teach you both to read if it kills me. Repeat after me, R.”

    That’s the best I could come up with. Time to go home.

    Sing along, everybody:

    “Out of the night,
    when the full moon is bright,
    comes the horseman known as Dorko…
    He’s gay and he’s bold,
    makes a D with this sword,
    — the D that stands for Dorko!
    Dorko! A cunning fox that ain’t he…
    Dorko! Who makes the sign of the D…

    That guy could just be a goatherd, you know.

    “Saga of the First King”… ah, nothing like “Saga” to impress the reader.

    “Saga of The Really Really Sharp Sword”
    “Saga of the First Outhouse”
    “Saga of FIFA”
    “Saga of Dubious Historical Sources”
    “Saga of Fish”

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    What’s most remarkable about this cover is that a woman apparently older than forty appears in it.

    Wait… This isn’t a family portrait by any chance?
