Thoughtful Thursday: Rename this cover!

36Baen is known for its cheesy cover art, but this one is particularly horrid.

Please help us rename this awful-looking story collection by Christopher Anvil. Rx for Chaos is highly rated at Amazon, by the way, so let’s not judge the book by its cover.

The author of the new title we like best wins a book from our stacks.

Got a suggestion for a horrible cover that needs renaming? Please send it to Kat.

We love this game!kelly

    Huh, at first I couldn’t tell if he was cradling a gun or playing some kind of guitar-shaped musical instrument, so my first thought was just plain “Def Leppard” and then I remembered a certain story by Heinlein and amended it to: “Deaf Leopard sings [i]The Green Hills of Earth[/i].”
