Best things about this cover:

  • O dear god if he lifts that left knee any higher... First rule of warfare: protect your junk
  • Whose blood is on that sword? Or is he posing in triumph after winning the jelly application portion of the PB&J Olympics?
  • Are they on some team? Why are they wearing the same uniform?
  • "Manitoba Curling Champions, 2210"
Maughta, over at "Judge a Book by Its Cover," very coincidentally featured this very book just last week. I even delayed writing about the book because I didn't want it to be the subject of the one write-up a week that I crosspost on her site. She likened the cover to the movie poster for "Star Wars." I'd like to provide two other movie posters for your consideration:




And now, the back cover:



Best things about this back cover:

  • Boring!
  • This plot sounds like the plot of "The Most Dangerous Game"
  • "This is how adventure should be written" - this is not, however, how book reviews should be written: "Excellently evoked settings and characters"? Who says that??

"You know what I think of her characters?"
"No, what?"
"They are excellently evoked."
"I want to kill you right now."

Page 123~

Dane stood looking after her for a moment, then bent, on a strange impulse, and lifted the long, silky coil in his hands. It clung there, fine and smooth and springy; he coiled it into a roll and thrust it inside his tunic next to his skin. A favor from my lady, he thought.


This is from the chapter entitled "Creepy Guy at the Renaissance Faire."

Who says that? Science Fiction Review Monthly, that's who!

Wait... The "best weapons available" in the future are swords and gnarled tree branches? That's lame. If I don't get to have a turbo plasma rifle in the future, I'm not going.

John, thanks for making me laugh out loud. I love when the comments are funnier than my write-up.
