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: 5.63 out of 10)

    Why does he have a children’s water slide dangling from underneath his belly armor?

  3. Raoul Says:

    Mom bought it two sizes too big. Said he would grow into it.

    Wait a mo. That’s a Horus Heresy novel. Doesn’t Warhammer 40K series violate GSS protocol?

  6. StevenLP Says:

    Of course there’s no need for a helmet – obviously no opponent is going to aim for the head, that would be ungentlemany.

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    This seems like a pretty up-market cover for a Warhammer 40K novelization.

  8. Tom Noir Says:

    Of course I have friends who drop $1000s on 40K models so maybe the publishers just know their audience has money to burn.

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tom: “laughter of thirsting gods” indeed…

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    @DSWBT – It doesn’t actually say “Warhammer” on the cover.
    So I guess I slipped one past the goalie!

  11. Anna T. Says:

    That font is far, far too sophisticated for this cover. And the capitalization of the tagline just bugs me. “The dying of the light” – with no punctuation, even. Grrr.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Anna T: rage, rage against the quoting lacking type. 😉

  13. JuanPaul Says:

    The big fist is for wreckin’, the little hand is for lovin’.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    He doesn’t have a manly scar down the side of his face, does he???

  15. Tom Noir Says:

    Thank god the armored exoskeleton has a loincloth!

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I’m not seeing a lighthouse anywhere, contrary to title and blurb.

    @Anna T: agreed, the font is way too classy for the illustration.

    @Tom Noir: Had to have a loincloth; the armor suit probably has metal, er, spheres, like the new Transformers.
    Or maybe it doesn’t, which adds to his anger?

  17. MisterBob Says:

    I’m not seeing his jewel encrusted dagger anywhere ?
    Is it under his loincloth,perhaps.`

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    (Somebody had to say it…)

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @MisterBob: Everything else is, including the fauceted scarlet emerald.

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    If that overlong loincloth gets stuck in the ground — or he simply steps on it — that “fearsome warrior” is going to fall flat on his face.

  21. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Isn’t that Chunk from the Goonies?

  22. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @A-S: Forget the power of the truffle shuffle, for Jeff Cohen has passed the bar in California.

  23. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    @DSWBT….is that his “power suit” that he wears to work nowadays?

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @A-S: yes it is…he got it from Crown Prince Haakon back when they were at Berkeley together.
