Here are the books we received this past week. Which cover do you like best?
Let’s try a meme!
When considering the books above:
- Which book has the coolest cover?
- Which book has the worst cover?
- Which book do you most want to read?
My responses after the jump…
1. Which book has the coolest cover? It’s a toss-up between MultiReal and An Autumn War. Both covers are by Stephan Martiniere who does some of the most fantasic futuristic landscapes I’ve ever seen. I also like the classic look (as in classic 80s) of The Viper of Portello and The Voyage of the Space Beagle. All the Windwracked Stars look intriguing, too, though our copy, being an advanced review copy, lacks that cool cover art.
2. Which book has the worst cover? Keeping in mind that a book’s cover in no way reflects the quality of the story contained therein (is that a good enough disclaimer?), I’d say I’m les than impressed with What If…? and The Valley-Westside War. The former looks like a first draft and the latter looks like it is actually covered with newspaper, which I suppose is all part of the story, but still…
3. Which book do you most want to read? I’ve been hearing good things about Infoquake, so Multireal is on my mind at the moment. I also note that I have already read and reviewed The Voyage of the Space Beagle which you should read for the awesome “Black Destroyer”, the story that inspired the film Alien.
