Turns out this book might be apocalyptic Christian literature by E G White.
We appologise, but the cover is still pretty epic!

Thanks to Phil for helping locate info!

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: 6.53 out of 10)

    They thought the cover would speak for itself on this one. No author, no blurb on the back, and no words inside except “THE END”. They’re giving us a warning!

    “Your eyes are the most beautiful blue.. with a little green… and white swirls… yea! I’d actually go see someone about that.”

  3. SI Says:

    Oh and isn’t that the fire from the Ark at the end of Indiana Jones 😀

  4. Adam Roberts Says:

    I see a noseless cyclops with a wide red-and-yellow mouth licking the landscape with a big fiery tongue. That’s what I see, at any rate.

  5. Phil Says:

    Noseless cyclops, yes. But licking? I see spewing. Or maybe sucking.

    “We’ll meet again…don’t know where…don’t know when…”

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Additional–I looked up “Final War” at Wikipedia, and it says that there’s such a novella written by Barry N. Malzberg under the pseudonym K. M. O’Donnell. Except for the publication year (1968), I can’t find more.

    You’ve got some gunk in your eye… oh wait, that’s just the earth.

    A shocking glimpse into Sarah Palin’s brain.

    @Adam Roberts @Phil Definitely vomiting his guts up. Also, he’s wearing a cotton afro wig.

    Fear me, for I am the cyclopes mushroom could of the apocalypse. I have no author and I’m only a $1.50!

  12. SI Says:

    @Dead Stuff with Big Teeth – Yea, I thought it was that as well for a bit. But I can’t find any reference of the Final War being released as a stand alone novel. Maybe it’s a game manual! haha

    I thought it was a new album cover for a rerelease of a Europe single ….

  14. Phil Says:

    BREAKING NEWS: found it on Amazon!

    If the Amazon page is to be believed, the author is Ellen Gould Harmon White who – according to the infallible Wikipedia – was a prolific Christian author and was key in the emergence of the Seventh Day Aventists!

    So no, this doesn’t sound like SF. Unless you count the Bible as SF. (Fantasy, yes, but SF?)

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @SI – The Infallible Wikipedia says that the novella was released along with a series of short stories in a TPB. But…

    @Phil – There are NO cyclopses in the book of Revelations. I only read apocalyptic literature with harlots on polycephalic dragons.

  16. SI Says:

    @Phil – Excellent researching! It’s a pity I can’t find anything to confirm the amazon listing but its the best we have to go on. You deserve a cookie!

    @Dead Stuff with Big Teeth – But there are seven headed beasts and one that has the appearance of lamb but sounds like a dragon. Unfortunately no hunk in a loincloth trying to save a damsel from an evil wizard though.

    that’s a really shoddy earth, what is that? America?

    Cover art recycled from — what else? — Philip K. Dick’s EYE IN THE SKY.

  20. Tom Noir Says:

    Is it just me or does that Earth-consuming eye have kind of a flirtatious, come-hither look?

  21. Tom Noir Says:

    Also, I feel there is some facial feature discrimination at work in the cover art industry. Nobody ever puts a giant nose on the cover.

  22. A.R.Yngve Says:

    FINAL SNEEZE, you mean?

  23. FearofMusıç Says:

    I LIKE IT!! I like chocalate milk…hello doggies!

  24. Jaouad Says:

    Yep. If I was God and I had a shiny blue stye in my eye, my war would be pretty final too.

  25. Anna T. Says:

    Someone’s opened a dimensional rift from Victoria Falls and is using it to flood New York City. Or possibly London. Can’t tell which. And all the while. the Earth-consuming eye of God watches impassively.

  26. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Baen would NEVER print a title like “Final War”. The very idea that there would be no more war is just too terrifying.

    Well, if a giant orifice opening over a city doesn’t put an end to wars, nothing will.
