Anything is possible when your man smells like Old Spice and not a lady. Im on a horse.Click for full image

Man of the Mountian’s Art Direction:So, the story is about a girl trapped in the middle of the black death in midevial England, while everyone back in her time are dying of a flu epidemic. Give us a nice upbeat cover, otherwise nobody is going to buy this!
Published 1993

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: 6.73 out of 10)

    “Sigh… Doomsday wasn’t so bad after all that, was it?”

    Great book (all the medieval scenes, anyway. I could have done w/out most of the modern era stuff). Horrible cover.

    Trying to tell the future with the ‘DNA’ tarot, I see. There are millions of cards in that pack, you know. Though only four designs …

    What a novel use for a TING!

    I thought the DNA thing was a sticker, not part of the actual cover.

    This is a remarkably “retro” cover — might have been on some 1940s pulp magazine.

    Also, it screams “ROMANCE!!!” Because the Black Death makes the ladies swoon faster than Barry White, baby.

    Give us a nice upbeat cover… with tiny people on it, a giant head and some guy riding away on a horse.

  8. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Wow, that horse seems to be emitting own light. Either he’s running really, really fast, or that is one badly faded cover!

  9. Smith Says:

    Behold! I have the biggest sleeves in all the kingdom!

  10. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Check out the scientists having fun with the DNA strand.

    @A.R.Yngve: If it hadn’t been on this site, I would have thought that this book was a romance novel. Then I would have wondered what was with the DNA picture. Trashiness incarnate. NOTHING about this cover indicates time travel, which is much, much cooler than trashy romance novels.
