Title: Ill Met By Moonlight
Author: Leslie Ford
Cover artist: Gerald Gregg
Yours for: $10
Best things about this cover:
- Ew, that red. Seems like the title should be "The Band-Aid Was Insufficient."
- I keep reading this "I'll Met …" and thinking "that's not grammar."
- Surely one of the dullest of Dell covers. In their defense, it is a Very early Dell, and I'm not sure they knew exactly what the hell they were doing yet.
- I don't think the eyeball-in-the-keyhole was ever this big again. Love it.
Best things about this back cover:
- Cursive? Really? Could you not afford a font-ist? Or a second color?
- Those are some gigantic sailboats.
- Who is this "Jo" guy? "Jo Village," "Jo Dock" … aw crap, that's a "T"! $&%^ing cursive!
"And then when he came to, days later, he was married to her. I suppose he did the decent thing."
