AH HA! Consider your re-enactment ruined! YEEEEEHAAA!Click for full image

Tom Noir Comments: Once the SCA started doing their reenactments next door the local NRA chapter, it was only a matter of time before trouble started.
Published 2001

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: 7.40 out of 10)

    As and when Cortez bags another redneck the tally floating above them will change to 1633

  4. Dave Van Domelen Says:

    And, of course, like pretty much all weird Baen covers, that actually happens in the book.

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Needs ‘hunkbutt’ tag?

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    Baen runs out of book titles. Starts publishing books by number.

  7. fred Says:

    This cover lost all historical accuracy with me due to the lack of bumper stickers on the truck.

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @fred: note the lack of conventional bumper on said truck.

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Is this, by any chance, a novel where a bunch of drunken rednecks and their truck are caught in a time vortex and whisked back to America in the year 1632, where they fight back a Spanish invasion, thereby laying the foundation of the Republic…?

    You don’t have to answer that question.

    It’s fixin’ to be another quiet Friday afternoon in Hazzard County. The school kids are watchin’ the clock, and the big hand can’t make it to three fast enough. Ol’ Cooter Davenport’s fallen asleep workin’ on Doc Petticord’s beat-up Oldsmobile. Down at the Boar’s Nest, folks are already talkin’ ’bout tonight’s live musical performance. But even a blue sky can have a cloud, and Gustavus Adolphus looks to be cookin’ up a little hail for the Duke Boys. Pardon my Thuringian.

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    Reviews on GoodReads seem to indicate that this is every bit the jingoistic pro-guns, pro-‘Murica exercise that the cover makes it out to be so… win??

    Conquistador re-enactments? Aren’t they, you know, a bit too far North for that?

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    When LARPers Attack

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    @anon: Hey, I live in Florida and we had more than our fair share of conquistadors tromping through here! They got farther north than you’d think.

  15. anon Says:

    @Tom Noir: Ok. Spruce naturally growing there too?

  16. Rev Says:

    Pardon my Thuringian, Finnegan, begin again.

  17. Tom Noir Says:

    @anon: actually the MOUNTAINS are the big problem with this pic. In Florida we have two types of terrain: flat and swampy.

  18. anon Says:

    @Tom Noir: Ah. They do look a bit out of place and it’s not because of the truck or the house. One less conquistador and no guns and I might be thinking a failed depiction of Don Quixote with Sancho Panza..

  19. Nissa Annakindt Says:

    Perhaps you should read the book instead of just guessing based on the cover. It’s actually quite good and the fellows you think are NRA members are actually good progressive union men who happen to have had their county sent back in time to, you guessed it, 1632.

  20. Alessandra Kelley Says:

    Dead Stuff With Big Teeth wins (re: Dukes of Hazzard reference).

  21. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Alessandra: cheers! It’s what I have Wikipedia for. 🙂

  22. anon Says:

    @Nissa: So, that’s why they use a log for a bumper!

  23. Rev Says:

    Shouldn’t that font be orange?
