WOW! All that moss sure knows where to cling to.Click for full image

Like a baseball bat to the face, we’ll hit our viewers with something special. A large forest women with rams horns and red curly hair. Perfect? Not quite. She’ll be wading her way through a swamp with another considerably smaller green tinted female watching. Now we’re perfect.

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: 5.19 out of 10)

    Damn, looks like we’ll have to get a magician to un-attach the o’s in brooks.

    Editor : Hmm Terry, theres just too many letters in your surname “Brooks”….
    Terry : Six letters is too many? Just use a smaller font, what the hell do i pay you for?
    Editor : I made rice crispie biscuits….
    Terry : You’re not going to use a smaller font, are you?
    Editor : …they have cheese sprinkles

    I read first three possibly 4 of his Sword of Shannara when i was like 14, which i enjoyed. I didn’t like the direction of the 2nd series set in that world and gave it up about 40 pages in. I think the book above is vaguely comedy, but i could be wrong

    Cheese sprinkles on rice crispie biscuits? You’re no man…

    ‘Ohhh so you used the herbal essences with added radiation. Well your hair does look fantastic.’

    “Why thank you, i also use herbal essences conditioner to sort out that tangle in my er… box…” -call me a taxi, i’ll get my coat.

    BTW Did you see Barclays profits were £11.6bn this financial year?! Who’d have thought fantasy writing was so profitable???

    multiple posts win.

    Just looking at the background of that photo. Someone seriously wanted rid of their Simon Green novels… then again, he did write the novel adaptation of a Kevin Costner movie
    *crosses fingers that Simon who posts here isnt Simon Green lol*

  6. Simon Says:

    I’m not.

  7. SI Says:

    *coughs to break the awkward silence*

  8. CSA Says:

    Who would have guessed there are atleast two Simons in the UK

  9. CSA Says:

    I found the original picture on the artists website. original artwork

    I actually quite like the art when you see it in full detail, but still wouldnt want it on a cover

  10. Simon Says:

    Not my intention to cause awkwardness.

    I’ve heard rumours about a third Simon but frankly I think that’s ridiculous.

  11. CSA Says:

    “The Third Simon” by Dan Brown

  12. stevetalbert Says:

    you can bet that box is tangled

  13. Ragtatter Says:

    I HAVE this book. Surprisingly enough, the cover is relevant to the story.

  14. Stevie T Says:

    The Magic Kingdom of Landover series was actually pretty good–for the first 2 books. The third one was OK, but then this one came out. I found the cover to be very off-putting. Everything about this cover screamed at me, “Don’t Buy It!!!!” Reeeally should have listened….Needless to say, I haven’t read any of the rest of the series since then.

    When She-Hulk met Miss Megabytes of Ram …

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I like to think that this picture was painted of the scene where She-Ram fell out of the tree into the muck and is now trying to recapture the awe of her visitor.

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “The Magic Kingdom of Land Rover” would make a great name for an upscale auto dealership.

    Mating season among giant ram people must be quite the tourist destination and the basis for the best unmade Monty Python skit never made.

  19. THX 1139 Says:

    At this stage I’m wondering if there’s such a thing as a New York Times Worstseller.

  20. Tat Wood Says:

    @THX: yes, all my books.

  21. Francis Boyle Says:

    I think big woman is warning little woman about the monstrous crocodiles* that bit off her lower legs.

    *Other fearsome creatures are available but as I’m Australian I’m going with crocs.

  22. Bibliomancer Says:

    Love the L.A. Rams new cheerleader outfits!

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    It’s well-done, all proportioned and everything. It may even apply to the book’s plot. It’s just daft. Giant woman’s right fingers are in a strange position.

    And yes, the juxtaposition of the title and art is, erm. Well, yes.

    @BC: “With out-of-this-world financing!”

    @fred: It must have been too tough even for the Pythons to consider.

    @THX: raises hand

    @B’man: Rah, rah, siss, boom, BAAAH. Tiny woman must be auditioning for the team (She’s gone green from a badly-maintained swimming pool).
