Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: So, I hear you have been seeing my daughter. Good artwork, my boy… be a real pity if someone would mess it up with a terrible grey cover plaque… wouldn’t it…
Published 1990

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: 6.56 out of 10)

    “Good news sir, we are going to publish your book, The Demon Lord. What’s your name again?”

    “Heh heh, tell them it’s ‘Peter Morwood’.” *giggles*

    “Sorry, what was that first bit again, Mr. Morwood?”

  7. Bibliomancer Says:

    I knew this was the work of an Unknown Artist Institute graduate before I even looked at the tags.

  8. Peter Morwood Says:

    Dear Sirs,

    I will not tolerate slander upon the good name that my parents, Richard and Ivana Morwood, bestowed upon me.

    Transpose the last two sentences from this what I am sure is a totally impartial ‘review’ and not done by the author or his representative to the cover art and it barely approaches my enthusiasm for todays offering.

    @fred: That gives me an idea for a blurb…

    Was Alric the destined warrior who would avenge his father? Or was he the kind of lonesome wanker to vote up his own paper books on Amazon?

    Genuinely read this title as ‘THE LEMON LORD’.

  13. Tag Wizard Says:

    Mr Morwood,

    Have you ever considered changing your name to Robert Peter Smyth?

    @Adam Roberts. Understandable- it’s a very lemony glow.
