Title: The Leather Burners
Author: Bliss Lomax
Cover artist: Uncredited
Yours for: $13
Best things about this cover:
- It's like two guys at a Flamboyant Ascot convention are having a chummy discussion about fabric texture: "Go on, feel it with your knuckles ... hey, easy, not so hard, I paid 6Gs for this. Persian silk. Etc."
- If this is a fight, it appears to have begun with a drink dispute—specifically, with the question of which is the manlier drink: Miller Lite or a whiskey sour? Unsurprisingly, whiskey sour man is kicking ass.
Best things about this back cover:
- In case you were wondering about the plausibility of my ascot scenario, I give you: Rainbow.
Rainbow saw Lint Granger stumble and go headlong. Grumpy was at the sheriff's side in a flash. Lint was heavy, raw boned, but Grumpy picked him up in a single movement, hurled him forward toward safety.
I wish this book were called "A Man Named Lint." Who *wouldn't* read that?
Not sure what kind of character-naming prowess I expect from a guy named "Bliss."
