A Midsummer Knight's Fever DreamClick for larger image

Ryan Comments: Hey, Poul, I bet you can’t write a SciFi novel that references Shakespeare and contains D’Artagnan, the Ring Cycle, steam-powered locomotives, Classical Greek architecture, and bearded monks!

It may hurt like hell leaning up this way, but that sure is one pretty space ship.Click for full image

You know what’s on the way back in terms of being considered manly? Pink! That’s right. So we’ll have a lot of it. And on top of that epic dose of man we’ll add more layers of manliness. A crewcut, a crossbow and most importantly a stomach wound. That’s one large slice of man-cake for your eyes.

The morning mind - pre-coffee.Click for slightly larger image

Piccol78’s Art Direction: So there’s Rama in the title than you got to play it mystical; no wait; better! Indian stuff goes well with Psychedelia so make it more Grateful Death, a bit hypnotic but with monsters and some Random Escher stuff. Uh, Uh! Don’t forget to put in a Flying Vagina!

Art direction: Right, I want this cover to scream EVILLLLL! Have a cloaked dark figure drawing a pentagram with a big nerd fantasy dagger. Have you ever been LARP’ING? Just like that!

Thanks to CSA!

Art direction: I want this cover to scream EVILLL!!! Yes, yes, just like before. But this time forget the pentagram and just put an evil tree with friggin’ lightning coming out from its branches!

Man, I must look awesome. Pity I'm not actually charging at anyone.Click for full image

Nothing says, ‘I’m one hundred percent pure man,’ than a glowing sword, blonde curtains and a cape with some red velvet lining. We’ll have him charging towards the reader on his horse, waving his sword and smiling manically. Make sure the fonts have at least three layers of bordering!

Look, over there! Another stereotype to join our party!Click for full image

A hunky swordsman, an old Robin Hood character, and a strange female sorceress. Now, because our trio are wanting to keep themselves undercover, give the hunky one a Zorro mask to cover his eyebrows and nose. No-one will ever know his true identity. No-one!

Sequel to 'Hunter/Biden'Click for larger image

Ryan Comments: Yes, a novel by Robert Sheckley. No, I don’t know what he meant by ‘the Sheckley type’ of hero illustration. Maybe it stands for ‘Sheckley & Magazines’ or ‘Sheckley & More’?
