No no... I'm pretty sure watching this movie will completely tell us how to defeat a dragon.Click for full image

You know what always bugged the hell out of me about the whole north verses south thing? No dragons or magic crystal orbs. The north frees the south of: dragons! Right there on the cover, with King Lincoln watching the battle on his orb! It almost makes me proud to be Americaglish… or whatever.

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: 8.49 out of 10)

    Couldn’t Lincoln just turn around to watch his men die? Instead of watching them on his orb.

    And what is it with these books using a font that looks like it was done in clip art.

    Well im no historian but that’s definitely Shakespeare, Adolf Hitler, and Frank Sinatra jr.

    Can it really claim to be alternate history when there’s dragons and crystal balls?

    awesome dragon btw

  3. CSA Says:

    Dont harry turtledove, david weber and Eric flint all have the same horrific orange font on all their books?

    The small boxes around the M and T of marching through is a nice touch…

    Id actually love to read that on a train and say to confused people “thats right, evil Lincoln AND a dragon”

    I am having terrible problems just getting past the title. It has a rather overly dramatic font for a name like Peachtree which is kind of sappy. More flouncy girls in pink dresses skipping down lanes with fruit baskets then army destroying dragons.

  6. CSA Says:

    you’re so right. “Marching through Peachtree”, sounds like one of those awful daytime TV movies about some single woman tring to raise her autistic adopted child in suburban america.

    I think they missed an opportunity here.

    I’m sure they could have crammed a few buxom wenches in…at the very least. There is a bit of space in between the flammed troops and the dragon.

    And a couple of elves. Trolls even.

    I do agree, that is a cool dragon.

    PS. Isn’t there a difference between alternate history and reality? Am I being overly pedantic?

    Is that Hugh Laurie off to the left there?

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Peachtree is quite obviously the dragon, AND he’s sensitive about his name. Do you want to turn your sun into a mean ol’ cuss? Name him Sue. Do you want to raise the meanest, fiercest dragon ever? Name him Peachtree.

    And then march your army through him, or whatever.

    If those four men would just stand closer, I could make some progress on this sculpture I’m carving on the face of Mount Rushmore.

    Stealing the Elf-King’s Peachtree.

    Marching through peachtree?!
    How about around it?

    The sphere at the bottom of the picture is the problem: they’re so distracted by 3D reruns of ‘The Love Boat’ as to not notice a rampaging dragon behind them.
