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!

    Billie Eilish cover album.

    Okay, what joker photoshopped a Baen logo on this?

  3. Ryan Says:

    I am a little disappointed that the illustrator left off the horse and the mountain lion in the lineup along the top.

    Otherwise, this is a 10 for strong connection to the actual story within the cover. Even if Penric looks a little…pert…here.

  4. Tat Wood Says:

    Tintin: the Mid-Life Crisis Years.

    @Tat: Ha! GSS. He no longer has Snowy around to dog laugh/give him side eye for the new ‘do.

  6. Ryan Says:

    Also, this is one of those covers where you would end up using the entire bag to improve it with googly eyes.

  7. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Old Man Tintin and the Unnerving Octuplets.

    @Emster: I imagine Captain Haddock would also have something to say on his style choices if he were still alive.

  8. Emster Says:

    @Ryan: I was scrolling the googly covers, saw Orange is the New Black and my mind immediately went here:

    yep yep yep

  9. GSS ex-noob Says:

    These are actually really good stories, with lots of humor, set in a vivid world. So leave it to GSS’ “favorite” publisher to do a boring, drab cover. One almost longs for bright colors and explosions.

    @fred: GSSxn makes the sign of the cross

    @Tor: We wish.

    @Ryan: Definitely needs the horse and big cat. I guess they were too amusing for this cover. And I had the same thought about the depiction of Penric. He’s not actually…pert. Most of the googly eye covers are improved

    @Tat, @Emster: GSS! Yep yep yep.

    Anyway, these are definitely worth reading, but get the ebooks which aren’t by this publisher. Tasteful covers (not that it matters in ebook) and no money going to the fashies.

    Penric wins his bet that there is too a dafter haircut than a man bun and leaves the hipsters seething angrily behind their landscaped microbeards..
