Finally, someone whose Photoshop skillz rival my own. :)

I couldn't help wondering at what point it switched from a review to a bullying. I imagine the debate Jason Kehe had with his editors at Wired was whether this was just plain meanness. (If it was a prize fight, the referee would have stopped it in the second paragraph.)

If I were Lawrence Ambrose, I'd put "As Featured in Wired Magazine!" on the cover.

Michele | 274 comments Yes, I did feel a tiny bit bad for the author but...those quotes from the book - they're terrible! Anyone who publishes a book better be prepared for write-ups like this. Making it public makes it fair game.

Kindle Cover Disasters has occupied my evening. www.goodshowsir.co.uk is also great for awful classic sf/f covers.

Bryn Hammond (brynhammond) @Brendan Thanks, can do with more humour. No end of it here.

Rose | 201 comments As much as I enjoyed looking at that cover, I think they missed the mark slightly. The same author has one much more....interesting
