Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!Click for larger image

Zoom in to further enjoy Fire Dancer, Dancer’s Luck, and Dancer’s Illusion!

Good Show Sir Comments: One of our little birds sent us a link to the Smart Bitches Trashy Books blog from a few years past, wallowing in the glory of terrible Ann Maxwell book covers. We’ve skewered a few in the past such as this one, and this one. This Signet series of “Dancer Series” covers has us doffing out hat and saying Good Show Sir! Good show, indeed.

Sadly, all three covers are by a graduate of the Unknown Artist Institute, as per isfdb.org.

Ernie the Muppet Comments:
♫ One Of These Things (Is Not Like The Others)
One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn’t belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others
By the time I finish my song? ♫

It’s a Two-fer Tuesday: Dominic Flandry Showcase

Good Show sir Comments:

1. Poul Anderson pulls a George R.R. Martin; kills off Flandry in a first chapter surprise!

2. Signet decides that putting Flandry’s face or name on the cover does not sell books.

Thanks to Charles for sending one in.
