For today’s post, a Richard Powers cover

Work on the book is going well but I can’t let up yet.Of course, “Who Goes There?” is covered in Alien Visitors as the source for The Thing From Another World and John Carpenter’s The Thing so it’s appropriate.

In lieue of a post, here are some book covers

All stuff I’ve posted before, but like I said Friday, I’m a little rushed finishing Alien Visitors. I suspect I’ll have a political post Monday because I feel the need to vent.

Can’t say I’m a fan of the book, but I do love the Powers cover.Here’s Gallardo’s cover for a book I’m not familiar with.Next, one by Earle BergeyAnd one by Lawrence Sterne StevensAnd a once famous Frank Frazetta Conan cover.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.

Jack Kirby for Halloween (slightly late)

Once again, I didn’t have time to write out a post, so here are some Jack Kirby monster covers as a Halloween leftover. The Where Monsters Dwell cover is Gil Kane. I’ve no idea why Grottu’s cover came out bigger than the others (different source website I suspect)#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holder.s

Cover to Cover

Diane and Leo Dillon give a grotesque cover but hey, it’s Harlan Ellison.This Earle Bergey image looks like a 1950s music video.Another Frank Frazetta cover, though I doubt the infamous Sawney Bean clan looked quite this barbaric in real life.A mystery cover by George A. Frederiksen.And a Jeff Jones cover to wrap up.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.

It’s Tuesday, so let’s cover up!

So this Riviera strip club is patronized by cardinals with moon hats? Better strangeness from Diane and Leo DillonNext up, an eerie Frank Frazetta cover.Here’s an uncredited cover with S-E-X and sin on it.And the kind of based-on-the-movie tie-in book I’m not sure they make any more.#SFWApro. All covers are uncredited unless artist is identified. All rights remain with current holder.

Can you judge a book by its cover?

Maybe. I’m guessing this Robert Gibson Jones cover illustrates a comedy, for instance.This uncredited cover suggests mystery, murder and a gorgeous dame lie within. Great title to the story too.The next couple both express stories of supernatural evil, in different ways. First is uncredited, second is by Jeff Jones.And this Frazetta image gives a sense of a sword-and-planet romance, though I don’t recall it matches the book much.#SFWAPro.

Covering fire!

Much as I think of cover posts as a stopgap when I don’t have time for a real post, I’m finally realizing it’ll be an ongoing thing.

I don’t know where they’re going, but this Allen Anderson cover looks cool. And “Flame Jewel of the Ancients” sounds like the kind of pulp story I’d enjoy.

I’ve read Hannes Bok’s The Blue Flamingo and it’s not good. However I do like the Earle Bergey cover

.Here’s an uncredited book cover I like.This one by Fiedler looks good too.#SFWApro. All rights to images remains with current holders.

Tuesday’s covers are full of grace

Hannes Bok gives us a weird one. Unfortunately his writing wasn’t as good as his art.I’ve no idea what’s going on in this V.E. Pyle cover either, but I’d like to.This Walter Brooks cover is good, but it makes Simak’s amazing Time and Again look much more mundane than it is.

This Mel Crair cover — the guy’s face looks he’s either having a stroke or about to hulk out.

And here’s what looks like creative marketing of a Vonnegut book to make it cooler. Art is uncredited.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.
