Dude!!!!! ... you always need to have the vindaloo!Click for full image

OK, spinning my cover creator wheel again! We have… dragons, plural – nice! The dragons are (throwing my action dice)… shitting out fire, awesome! Hmm, they are also… (roll)… carrying… (spin)… a woman in a Persian rug, touch! And in the background this time we will have a….. pyramid… awww just like the books name!

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: 8.22 out of 10)

    Eric Flict you god amoung mere mortals. Another awesome cover!

    however, i do believe this one could be satire. but sometimes you just can’t know with Flint.

    Well the thing is… the book is comedy. But it’s not a joke unto the genre.

    So I think it still counts.

    Wow…that poor dragon. That must have been an epic curry.

    And they even managed to get in a buxom woman.

    I’m not convinced of that womens safety! She’s a tad bit top heavy and leaning out …. If that dragon has to come to an emerency stop there will be tears!

    I should probably not comment when I’m in the pub!

    Gotta love every time ‘shitting’ and ‘fire’ come up on the dice. It could always be that “breathed fire” has been misinterpreted in the old legends, wouldn’t that be embarrassing.

    I wonder if those two are related to Terry Pratchett’s Errol.

    It’s nice that you get not one, but TWO electrically charged black obsidian pyramids incorporated into the design. The cover art team really pulled out all the stops on this one!

    “.. better than a three ring circus… ”

    That’s not saying much really. Circus’ are freaky.They have clowns.And clowns are creepy and kinda evil. Then again, so’s Eric Flint.
    The artist hadda love this though. How often do you get asked to draw a surprised looking dragon with a massive column of flame shooting out it’s arse? And through a hoop no less. Pretty sweet.

    It is a caricature, but all the elements are in the book . . .

    The worrying thing is just how many of these titles/covers i own . . .
