Well, slap me thrice and hand me to my momma ....

It's been sitting on my bookshelf for at least 15 years, though I haven't read it yet.


OMG! You should!

I just discovered this cover on my shelf. It's an ace double, the other side is a book by one of my favorites, Barrington J..Bailey. Never paid attention to this side of it though. Dig the antique computer chips on the cover. Also, the jacket copy sounds....topical?

And here's one to send chills up your spine, so terrifying is it. Never read it, was compelled to find it and buy it on the internet after seeing an image online.

Really love the cover of thee bodice-ripper, Sil.S.

Now if ever there were a genre of book & cover to live within, i say it will be this one...!

My copy isnít fit for picture day.
This is hands down the best historical fiction novel Iíve read. At over 1300 pages itís not for the faint of heart So worth the time though.

i love the style of cover art on the story of Sacajawea. It seems very gentle in spirit. Love the log, or whatever, in the foreground. And the perspective as well, looking up, towards the heroine as she moves forward.

i just know i have seen this artist's work before, probably a zillion times, too.
