Lich Gate? Seems more like an archway to me... Click for full image

Jered Comments: It’s seriously like the artist used pictures of existing pop culture icons to model their characters. Matthew Broderick for the hero, Hoggle from Labyrinth for the goblin dude, and possibly Joey Fatone for the dwarf.
Published 1994

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: 6.15 out of 10)

    Heroes never die; they just get plagiarised into covers for new books. Good to see Hoggle again, though!

    And Neuschwanstein Castle for the backdrop.

    Doesn’t this merit a ‘font problems’ tag?

    I pity da pony. How on earth(?) can it hope to keep up. But then, why would it want to. The word yipes springs to mind.

    “Steven Frankos, author of The Wheel Trilogy.”

    It’s like The Wheel of Time, but much more concise.

    To my great surprise, a lychgate is an actual thing. And, to my greater surprise, it does involve dead bodies, though not re-animated ones per se.

    How do they get fresh water up to that castle? By bucket brigade?

    Heroes never die… but book covers are frequently killed.

    To be fair, Lich Gace is a hero name.
