Garret (garretldavis) | 93 comments Here's something I think could be interesting. What is your favorite book cover? I know we shouldn't judge this things for the story, but how about just some neat pictures/paintings/designs that have caught your attention over the years.

On the flip side: what about the worst as well?

Here's a pic of one that I've always enjoyed with its tight, succinct, and subtle elements to show the horror.

Garret (garretldavis) | 93 comments Unfortunately it's not letting me follow through the link. Here is one of the worst covers I've ever seen, but it fits with the story and was a very decent novel:

Simple for simple's sake...what do you think those who may have read it?

I would read it just to see if the cover does it justice.

That cover is cool. I have heard you mention that book a few times. Give me the three sentence summary, if you would.

Tye (exjuan_valdez) Johannes Cabal is a necromancer and strikes a deal with the devil. Takes a train driven, soul stealing, carnival across the country(i forget the location). He wins the deal.

Tye (exjuan_valdez) It's been at least 5 years since i've read that book.

Garret (garretldavis) | 93 comments This isn't so much about the image...but the cover in general:
