    Red sky at morning, readers take warning.

    One can simply levitate into Mordor.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    Was the sequel written by Steve Rotten?

  4. Cornelius Says:

    “There goes another one. I told you not to get Barry that Kidapult for his birthday.”

  5. NomadUK Says:

    Having tired of the old ring-toss game, the nobility move on to something more challenging.

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    Baby Idol’s coming in for a near-textbook landing but mage guy probably should have invested in some sort of hand protection given that little Billy is not exactly wearing pampers.

  7. Griz Says:

    You know your dancing baby gif has hit the big time when it’s on a book cover.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    @THX: if they’d used a Johnny, this wouldn’t have happened. They were running low on safety-pins as it was.

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    It’s true what they say: A babe in the hand is worth two in the bush,

  10. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Red sky at night, readers take flight.

  11. Bibliomancer Says:

    I’m sticking with “I Got You, Babe”.

  12. Tor Mented Says:

    @B’man: Well, no cannibalism jokes for me this time, then.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    More like Rosemary’s.

    Reminded me of one of our earlier covers:

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Not bad, but November’s baby has laser eyes.

  15. Hammy Says:

    Wait a minute.

    “Second in the awesome Dread Empire series…”

    How can something call the ‘Dread Empire’ be awesome? At best, it would be dreaded; at worst, dreadful.

  16. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Sound effect: Boing, boing, boing…

  17. THX 1139 Says:

    @Hammy: It’s from 1980, they probably mean the original definition of awesome, as in “inspiring awe, leaving you aghast”, that sort of thing.

  18. Emster Says:

    Kidapult… oh Cornelius, you crack me up. Brings to mind baby Toby from Labyrinth, also a serious child, but was at least dressed in a sensible onesie.

  19. fred Says:

    Then the title of the first book should be ‘January’s One Night Stand’.

  20. Bruce A Munro Says:

    The chap with the sword seems doubtful.

    “Really, Ambrodius? Another magical floating baby? Don’t you have any other spells?”

  21. Ryan Says:

    The Beardy Swordbearer is thinking, “Rats, I did not come prepared for whatever this is.”

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    The baby seems less 3D than anything else in the picture, including his modesty scarf. (Seriously, they couldn’t have fashioned a loin cloth out of that?)

    It’s like the artist ran out of time to finish the shading.
