MisterBob Comments: I think a GRYPHON is like a griffin, but hunts ladies of the night?
Published 1989

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!

    Wow, Chrysler/Dodge K-cars really were everywhere back then.

    At first I thought the lighting on the damsel’s face was coming from the wrong angle.

    Then I realized, she’s looking forward and to her left.

    Therefore, however horrible a griffin/gryphon/jroeghynn/whatever is, there is something even more horrible and also glowing right in front of her.

    Maybe it’s the real gryphon king? And that’s the gryphon self-park lot attendant in the back?

    What is a “human confusion”?

    Wow, there sure are a lot of TINGS here…

    And why is the girl trying desperately to get her jacket off you ask? It’s quite well known that gryphons have a thing for tie-dye shirts.

    Behind you!
    Yeah I know, that’s why I’m running. In this peculiar way.

    I’m so pleased that the author of WINDMASTER’S BANE wrote another novel, and one that doesn’t focus on windmasters or banes.

    All I can think about is, “Mine… Mine… Mine… Mine Mine Mine Mine!”

  10. Adam Roberts Says:

    I don’t believe she’s running. I believe the Gryphon’s evil magic is in the process of shrinking her left leg. No wonder she looks so alarmed.

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Well, “human confusions” pretty much sums up everything about this cover…

  12. Tom Noir Says:

    The fashion police’s methods may SEEM harsh, but that blouse really is a crime against humanity.

  13. Hep C Says:

    OK, this is a gigantic Ting!/Lens flare. And it’ s green. It’s not tagged however.

  14. Herm Says:

    I’m wondering at the texture on the wings. Those don’t look like they’re even *intended* to be feathers.

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    Can anything fly with wings made from savoy cabbage?

  16. David Cowie Says:

    Those aren’t wings. They are sea-turtle flippers.

  17. FeàrofMusiç Says:

    Lessee..definitely in need of the Phil! Behind you! tag. And I believe there is a ‘perspectives issues’ tag as well. This qualifies for that as well, (look at the car, then look at the house it is in front of. How tiny ARE the locals?)

    If we had a mutant anatomy tag she could have that as well. Those legs. Yipes!

    “A magical blending of immortal wars and human confusions.”

    Run this rather feeble blurb through the Blurbinator ((c) Doofenshmirtz Corp.), and you get:

    “An immortal blending of magical wars and human confusions.”

    “A magical confusion of immortal blendings and human wars.”

    “A human war of magical blendings and immortal confusions.”
