    Notable for a lack of argent. The compositor of this cover didn’t even read the title. But full marks for the lateral thinking of a twenty-four hour sundial. That must be really handy at the poles, for at least half the year.

    (stops and thinks about what the Midnight Sun’s trajectory across the sky would look like)

    No, actually, it wouldn’t.

    I say, sir, you’ve lint from your jumper all over your face and arms.

    I remember him. It’s the Silver Wanker!

    Looks like he’s part of some kind of Whack-a-Mole game now. Gimme a hammer.

    “Love… exciting and new! Come aboard! We’re expecting you!” (This is one of the guest stars you’d never heard of).

    If you’re going to assault the high wall of the enemy’s fortress by being shot from a cannon, then you ought to wear a helmet, sir – a helmet!

    What is it about this book that inspires all these shirtless man covers?!

    Book cover as Halloween costume. I smell a financial opportunity.

    “Robbie Williams, as you’ve never seen him before!”
    “Let meeee… Live-Roleplay youuu…!”

    Why is Bryan Callahan entering through a tiny Stargate? Have things been that bad since Mad TV?

    Tom Noir asked:
    “What is it about this book that inspires all these shirtless man covers?!”

    – As you know, Bob, it was the Romans who introduced the shirt to the ancient Celts. Before the Roman invasion, Celtic warriors used to wear live sheep or freshly killed deer to stay warm.

    Manscaping by Stephen R Lawhead

    The most highly disturbing thing about this cover is . . . I like the old one better. Eheheheh . . .

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Major typo. It’s supposed to be “Stephen R. Lawhand” and The Silver Head. Got their body parts mixed up.

    Much better this way, don’t you think?

    I don’t remember eating a shirtless man with a sword….why won’t he flush????
    Must keep flushing..don’t want that leaping out at me in the middle of the night..

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Thanks, rev — now I’ll have nightmares about toilet bowls…

    I feel like real celtic warriors probably had armpit hair.
