    You’re relaxing at home, just you, your cat, and the lost heir of Thanos, when all of a sudden you’re horrified by the dreadful Fail of an utterly inadequate Tanith Lee book cover.

    BRIAN BLESSED is not for the faint of heart.

    Hey, the guy on the poster of Scanners has a sister!

    I never watched ‘Taxi’ or ‘Who’s the Boss’ so I don’t know if Tony Danza is really right for this macabra thing.

  5. Tat Wood Says:

    Whatever did that to her hair doesn’t affect the candle, so it must have been styld that way.

    Who puts lit candles on top of CRT tellies? Does nobody remember ‘Brookside’?

  6. Ryan Says:

    Looks like the artist just painted an accurate self-portrait after months of Covid lockdown restrictions.

  7. fred Says:

    I’m glad I checked and found l’erotico means heretic and not what I thought it meant. Now the cover is just a regular, non confusing kind of bad.

  8. Cornelius Says:

    Who knew? A change in the wind CAN make your face stay like that.

    If the cover has people with their hands in their laps, do not place the blurb to obscure what their hands are doing.

    Looks like she’s been watching the US election on TV…

    Apparently this is what happens when you mis-hear the Elton John song as “Hold me closer Tony Danza”. Horrifying.

    I had to look twice to even see the cat — it blends in with the random murk of her shirt.

    @Tat: Going with @Ryan’s lockdown idea, I think maybe she’s just taken to showering less often while trapped in her dark house. And I think her electricity’s off, so that’s why she needs the candle, plus that makes the TV inoperable.

    @fred: That’s not what I got when I translated it. Of course, the translation also bounced back and forth from “they told her she was one of the group” to “they told her she was a lawyer”, so who knows? That led me to think of the following:

    @Tor: Obviously you never went to UAI. Or L’istituto Dell’artista Sconosciuto.

    “There was a knock on the front door. She froze in terror, waiting, too scared to even breathe. Then she heard a shuffling sound… and with a chill down her spine, she knew it was the discreet noise of Jehova’s Witnesses sliding a booklet through the doorway crack. Inwardly, she screamed…”
