Re: Anyone Like the "Inaccurate" Book Cover art from the 1980's?

Back in the day, the covers were often finished before the books were. I confess I've been known to adjust the books to make them fit the covers. (Beverly saves the day in Dragon's Honor because I'd seen the cover art and knew Gates McFadden was going to be on it . . . .)

Actual conversation:

"Hey, Greg. Is there a helicopter in The Eugenics Wars?"

"Er, not yet."

"Well, can there be a helicopter in the book? Because we put one of the cover."

"Fine. I'm sure I can work a helicopter in somewhere . . . . "

(This is also the reason Iceman suddenly shows up halfway through my X-MEN trilogy. Because he accidentally ended up on the cover!)
