Many thanks to E! You might remember this from here.

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: 5.62 out of 10)

    Billy Connolly’s World Tour of The Netherworld?

  3. Tom Noir Says:

    So… is that the ‘lady wizard’?

  4. Lulu Says:

    Maybe it’s the ‘con man’… or the demon. Really, it could be all three. Maybe that’s what they meant by “join forces”?

  5. Amy Says:

    What the fuck is Billy Connolly going in his Deluxe Snuggie? Watch out, Billy, there are three Republicans behind you!

  6. Amy Says:

    That was nonsensical. I meant “Where”! Tumbeasts in me keyboard…

    Billy Connolly: “So I was on this comedy gig in the Seven Realms, and I went looking for the local pub, when a bunch o’ crazy demons show up. ‘Give us yer soul!’ they say. And I look at them and say ‘F*** this!’…”

    “Which backdrop are you using? It’s the one with the lasers, isn’t it?”

    “Um, yeah…just…say cheese.”

  9. Adam Roberts Says:

    Is he standing on top of a gigantic Easter egg? That really is the piece de resistance.

    Welcome to Reading Rainbow! Today in our ongoing bad fantasy series…

    Ronnie James Dio returns from the dead! Minus his Just For Men.

    Riddle of the Seven Realms: ‘Why did the conjuror put on an ear of maize for his summoning ritual?’

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Oh my. Somehow I missed this one in my trawl through the archives.

    That’s definitely Billy Connolly in a Deluxe Snuggie, standing on a giant Easter egg.

    I think the demons are recoiling in horror about being on this cover. Nowt to do with the Big Yin’s walking stick.

    The link, sadly like so many older ones, is broken, but I looked at all the covers on Goodreads and they’re all horrible. The reviewers, by the way, said this was the worst of the series, the female characters are cardboard, and simply “Meh.”
