Bookcover Spotlight

Pirates of Venus (Venus, #1)

This is an atmospheric cover. The Venus books by Edgar Rice Burroughs are not great literature, and I don't think this series is good as his John Carter of Mars books, but they did have some good covers at times. This one just puts me in mind of storm- tossed seas on an alien world, an exotic city in the distance (lower right corner), and of course the bird men are kinda cool looking.

  1. Some of the old covers are so fun to see again, Greg. I like a lot of Baen Publishing covers because they have that old-time feel.

  3. Hi, Cait! *waves to my buddy Cait* I love this style of cover. I have the first six Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever books from years and years ago, and they are a similar style. I treasure them. :)

  4. I've been loving the warmer weather too! I only like snow in VERY short spurts - I like it to snow a foot or more (so the kids can play in it) and then melt the next day. :-)

  5. I am so happy that i got cured from herpes virus 1&2 after i have suffered from this virus for over 3 years. I have been using drugs to suppress it,i got introduced to doc tor razor by a friend of mine who knew i was herpes positive, she believes in herbs, and i have full doubt on her idea to try out herbal medicine. I contacted the doctor and told him what i was passing through, so he promised he was going to get me cured completely. I am so glad that after applying doctor razor herbal remedy for 18 days there is no trace of the virus in my body as confirmed by the results given to me by the medical hospital,where i conducted my test. I am so grateful Doctor Razor. For those who are in same situation just like i was, you can reach out to doctor razor on email : drrazorherbalhome@gmail.com , WhatsApp or Call him on +2349065420442. Please share as received, so multitude can be saved from this virus
