Should have kept this one buriedClick for larger image

Verylatetotheparty Comments: I can’t believe anybody would choose that font. If the only brief was a piece of paper with ‘title: The Tomb’ written on it, nobody would choose that font. Even the skull on the cover looks like it can’t believe that font.

Good Show Sir Comments: Bibliomancer commented yesterday “It seems whenever we post a Devil-worshiper cover we encounter “Technical Difficulties” on the site. Best not to mess with the Dark Forces.”

Well I say “Bring it on, Beelze-Buddy! Good Show Sir doesn’t fear you or your skank mistress!”

Alessandra Kelley Comments: I recall Saberhagen’s book, which I read in the 1980s, to be a not-at-all-bad retelling of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” from the pov of Dracula himself. While the book has a certain dry wit and self-aware sense of humor, it is not, as this 1975 first edition cover might suggest, a wacky goofball comedy precursor to “What We Do In The Shadows.”

Special bonus interior cigarette ad because 1975.

Many Authors, not a good sign
Oh god, it’s a novelization
of a screenplay of a story idea
written on cocktail napkin

And it’s a HAMMER FILM
