 purple prince stabbing at some green guy, oh and make sure there is someone with at least four arms

Art direction: The question is, what shouldn’t we have on the cover? Have a purple prince stabbing at a furry green wolfman with a couple of guys watching in the background.. one of them has to have four arms.

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: 8.36 out of 10)

    nice, there’s just so much going on in this picture my eyes can’t seem to focus on any one particular aspect of its terribleness (awesomeness)… i would NOT read that beast on a train

    That looks like a heck of a rave party.

    Amusingly, this is the least representative scene in the novel. It is a novel about covert infiltration, leading to a ground, air and space battle with futuristic technology (since it happens in the future).

    The cover should obviously have what looks like a medieval fight between a werewolf and a prince.

    By Baen standards, this *is* covert.

  5. SI Says:

    It’s a brilliant cover. Unfortunately not the best picture of it. I love the Pink Princes expression on his face, almost like he isn’t quite sure what the heck he is trying to kill. But might as well give it a go anyway.

    Cover later recycled for John McCain’s pamphlet “This Is What Our Military Will Look Like If We Allow Gays To Serve Openly.”

    I just noticed that the title of this book is a palindrome.



  8. GSS noob Says:

    Must agree with Nix: no explosions, no outer space, no ridiculous guns. So it is covert for BAEN.

    Thought at first the fellow in the background without supernumerary arms was playing the fiddle, supplying background music for the fight/rave.

    @TW: Was this before the “oh so shiny” tag existed?
