Famous Book Covers with Corrected Titles

Also, the posts Jo Walton links to from her tor.com post are really funny!

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

My favorite cover in Part 1 is the David Eddings cover, with the new title: Remember The First Five Books? Like That.

Or maybe the Robert Jordan cover, which is down farther.

My favorite in Part 2 is once again the one at the top, Mercedes Lackey’s cover with the title: My Little Pony Goes To War.

Hah hah hah! Sorry. That really *is* just what the cover looks like. I also really love the Turtledove cover’s new title.

Not sure which one I’d pick from Part 3.

Anyway, these are well worth clicking through and admiring.

    Oh, man Weis and Hackman, “A Tale of 5 Million Experience Points.” So true. The thing is, I knew it was bad even as an adolescent. (Same with Eddings, who really did write the same thing over and over.)

    I admit I never read Weis. (And don’t plan to.) I thought Eddings did a good job with dialogue, but his books did tend to be a bit repetitive, didn’t they?

    Yes, Weis-Hickman are useful only as a cautionary tale. My favorite technique for a (negative) review of an excessively plot driven book: well, it’s better than Weis and Hickman…
