Re: June 2013 SF&F Books (OT)

Items that I know nothing about but was compelled to click on due to the beauty of the cover and/or the interest provoked by the title:
  • Metro Winds by Isobelle Carmody (title and cover)
  • The 'Geisters by David Nickle (title and cover)
  • The Stranger by Anna Banks (cover)
  • Wisp of a Thing by Alex Bledsoe (title)
Now off to read about them to see if they might be as interesting as they appear at first blush.

And here, for the record, I will state how HORRIBLE all the covers for the reprints of Anne McCaffrey's novels have been. Ugh. They all look like cards for a new CW series. (Actually, I'm not sure they're all THAT bad, it's just that compared to the beautiful covers from the 80s and 90s, they are vastly inferior. I cut my fantastical imagination's baby teeth on the covers for The Dragonriders of Pern and the Talent series.)
This is our small proof, not only that things can be done differently in this business, but that the greatest expression of rebellion is joy.
