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.

BookWench’s Art Direction: Okay, so this just looks like two nipple-less people standing there exposing their inner wrists. How do we make it more “Faith of the Fallen”-y? Uhm, how about chucking a craftsman in there, admiring his nipple-less handiwork?
