Phil’s Art Direction: Are you SURE Bradbury is sufficiently recognisable enough to appear on his own book covers? Well, jazz it up a bit; he looks a bit plain.
Published 2009

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: 8.03 out of 10)

    Shouldn’t the more appropriate title be RAY BRADBURY’S BOOKS OF BLOOD…?
    Oh, right, Clive Barker’s got dibs on that one.

    You have to look a LOT of times at the author name to spot the “super-duper-clever” use of color to hide “Ray” inside “Bradbury.”

    Way to go, Art Department.

    That “hide the name RAY inside the name BRADBURY” trick has been annoyingly used on a whole load of his books:
