    Willo the Wisp seems to be hiding behind her head. And what’s with the pair of Iron Crosses flanking the title?

    The blurb seems to be telling me, in a roundabout way, that this is a horrible book. I believe it.

  2. Jaouad Says:

    After the blue lights had faded, Athaya decided she would never again select her hairdressers on bicep size alone.

  3. Jaouad Says:

    Is it just me, or do those arches look as if they’ve been crayoned in?

    Julian Sands decides that Derren Brown book was a wise investment.

  5. Tom Hering Says:

    Candles, vapors, swooning. Athaya’s aroma therapist gave her everything she wanted, until the day he wore his sword. Now he would take – without asking!

  6. Rags Says:

    Wait, is he wearing rubber muscle shirt and pants? Well at least he is liquid proof.

    Queen blew the castle budget on the candle holders.

  7. Bibliomancer Says:

    Are those stink lines wafting off of Princess Athaya? She’s using way too much perfume.

    @Tag Wizard — beard-wielding? He’s wielding a whole lot of stuff but nary a beard … unless you are implying that the princess is his “beard”?

  8. The Tag Wizard Says:

    @Biblio – left candlestick

  9. Phil Says:

    Ooh, good save, Tag Wizard. I hadn’t noticed Dave Lee Travis concealed in the candle stand.

  10. Tom Noir Says:

    @Tag Wizard – you have a good eye for beards!

    Does that make you… The Wizard King??? And are you rocking an epic ponytail?

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Julie Dean Smith writes very dood books, says Gene Simmons.

    Behind the wizard’s right foot–where is that pool of sunlight coming from?

    I’ve heard of Princess phones, but not Princess lanterns.

  13. FëäröfMüšíc Says:

    Oh so very busy. So much color and detail. A mescaline manifestation of motile formal and freeform color and flow. What it means or is does not factor. This is a DMT alternate reality inter-referenced perceptual journey, with clear insights into the infiniverse. The story is an ever expanding exploration into the individually perceived subjective reality of their surroundings.

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Dude, watch the upcreep on that right hand. You’re the Wizard King, not a Lizard King.

    And it feels like there should be a tag for the kind of belt buckle she’s wearing. I think it’s that monkey from the space-banana pile.

  15. The Tag Wizard Says:

    @Mr Chiclitz, monkey tag added (and with only mild annoyance at the species for not conforming to the pre-existing “ape” tag). Good shout!

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @T-Wiz—Thank ye, kind sir, on the simian thing. By the way, good catch on that beard! Not often is Sri B’Mancer given a comeuppance.

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz — Don’t you feel bad now that you’re making The Tag Wizard spend the weekend updating all the monkey tags on the appropriate book covers. There must be a barrel of monkeys here!

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The cover blurb seems to assume that the entire world is familiar with those pesky wizards of Caithe — whoever they may be.

    Can YOU guess who the Wizards of Caithe are? Are they:

    A) The dreaded IRS inspectors of Midgard
    B) The fun-lovin’ team of wizard beach volleyball players and surfers
    C) The renegade princess’s in-laws
    D) On their way to Bethlehem
    E) The renegade princess’s spin doctors
    F) Carnies

  19. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “This is for Warlock III!”

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The chap from The Golden Horn got around a bit when he was younger.

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @B’Mancer 17—Now that you mention it, I do feel sorta bad about that. Why don’t you spend some time helping him out? You’re still on summer hiatus, aren’t you?

  22. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Of course I meant left hand. Congenital spatial dyslexia, the curse of left-handers.

  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Wait, wasn’t the Wizard King Γim Morrison?

  24. Bokrug the Beleaguered Says:


    *i can do anything*

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I am most dreadfully sorry that this obvious pun comes so late to the party, but here goes:


  26. Anna T. Says:

    Why is he wearing black leather pants and a matching muscle shirt? I didn’t know they had THAT in the Middle Ages!

  27. Perry Armstrong Says:

    Bill Cosby’s favourite fantasy novel.

    Too soon, Perry… too soon!
