Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Spaceships/UFOs

Technically the topic this week is UFOs, but really whether something is a UFO or not is relative, right? I mean, to the aliens in the UFO, it's actually just a spaceship. Or it could be humans flying around in a ship, or something that's not even a ship, but if someone happens to see it and doesn't know what it is, voila! It becomes a UFO. Yes? This was all just a really long way of saying I'm...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring New York City

When I was a kid, I always wanted to go to New York. I don't know if I'd ever actually want to live there, but I finally got to go there when I was 16 or so, for two days on a family vacation, and yes, I loved it just as much as I thought I would. Unfortunately that's the only time I've ever been. Anyway, New York, it turns out, is an awesome topic for book covers! And, because I'm a...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Elephants

A lot of the covers I found this week aren't my usual type of covers, and I'm pretty sure quite a few of them aren't sci-fi/fantasy, but elephants is just an awesome topic! So I wanted to join in anyway. You know, I always say I have a story for everything, but it turns out I do not have any stories about elephants. I mean, I've read some interesting/funny/awesome things involving elephants in...

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Cards

You know what's great about the topic playing cards? They're all red and black, my favorite colors! However, I didn't end up sticking to just playing cards. I couldn't quite tell what some of the cards on covers were and just using playing card covers was limiting, so tarot cards, baseball cards---really any palm-sized cards---I also deemed appropriate. Speaking of cards though, it has been a...
 

Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Tentacles

Tentacles is kind of an odd topic for me to choose since I don't read a whole lot of books that involve tentacles. What kind of books involve tentacles anyway? Books set out at sea? Maybe books about weddings if comedian Demetri Martin were writing them? I've read a few books that had kraken in them, and one of them did in fact take place out at sea. I also read a couple of books in a series that...
