You're a white witch... I'm a black samurai.. opposites attract, right?

Horses. Three horses to be exact! Well, lets put a generic ranger on one of them, but I was thinking of something different for the others…. Oh! A female sorcerer and a huge black samurai! Man, this is going to be a bestseller!

Thanks to CSA!

I must look so dam awesome right about now!Click for full image

Well, we’ve got the red on there, ’cause of fire being in the title. We’ve got the epic dragon and the merlin esk wizard with his magic orb. But we’re missing something. Something that’s going to make someone pick up the book and think, ‘this is the one.’ Of course!! Surround the title in an awesome gold shiny goodness!

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: That’s a really nice painting you did for the Le Guin cover, but you know what would really sell it? Incorporating this photograph of my nephew and I at the Ren Faire. Don’t be silly, my mod seventies mullet-ponytail combo looks COMPLETELY medieval.
Published 1981 (maybe)

Many thanks to Tom!

Don Comments: In the Future

  • Your basketball shoes will be shiny.
  • Your garage will have lots of random gages and tubes on its walls.
  • “Dead Gopher with Habanero” will be a popular flavor of cat food, judging by the expressions of this guy and his cat respectively.

Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Comments: Any similarity between the cover art and turn-of-the-millenium Hayao Miyazaki heroines is purely coincidental.
