My gun is so powerful I blow away cities...Click for full image

OK! Get ready ’cause here comes the cover train and we’re about to jump right on it! One, a hunky topless man holding his huge gun. Two, a post-apocalyptic scene in the background. Three, the author’s name in terrible fonts and way larger than the actual book title. Four, did I mention muscles…mmm, MMM! Wooo woo all aboard!!!!

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: 8.74 out of 10)

    Good lord… why in post apocolypse earth is he not wearing clothes?

    You’d think he’d want to protect his well oiled muscles and silky shiny hair from the harsh elements.

    Maybe a nuclear/chemical hasmat suit is needed? thad be more realistic.
    Dont the people who read this book care AT ALL about the details!?!

  2. SI Says:

    Well… probably certain details. Like measurements of his ABS!

    I do really love the authors name in this one. It’s probably the most offensive I have ever seen. When I was saving the image I completely though the book was called, ‘Knight Warrior’. I was wrong… oh I was wrong.

    I note from the muzzle flash that he is apparently firing his gun. It doesn’t look like he’s going to hit much of anything, though. Maybe he’d do a better job if he wasn’t busy casting smoldering looks over his shoulder?

    Look at the waistline, above and below the arm and the belt satchel. The artist must have been working from a pot-bellied model. He or she touched up the muscles, but left the trousers intact!

    Or–and I could be mistaken–the lighting is utterly daft.

    It appears that the muzzle flash is actually coming from the torch attachment under the gun barrel.

    Getting some seriously schizo vibes from this cover. It’s all over the place.
    Is it supposed to be romance? Or “survivalist” SF?

    By the way, who’s the target group? Women who love guns? Women who love men who love men who love guns?

    Oh, and note the brackets around [Angela Knight] in the review quote.
    Would you bet a quid that the editor made a “creative” leap of logic there…?

    “It says Danielle Steele, but I’m sure she meant Angela Knight…”

    The good things about this is his head’s not cut off (usually we just see buff torsos) and that for once a man is forced to do the “simultaneous chest and butt” pose.

    No excuse for the rest of it.
