Two Themes For Saturday Morning

leave a comment »

Book covers:

  • Caustic Cover Critic marvels at some wildly inappropriate book covers from Tutis Digital Publishing.
  • Orbit do some in-depth research into what makes a fantasy book cover. Swords and glowy magic, apparently.
  • Elsewhere Sherlock Holmes goes pulp.

Stuff in the paper:

  • Peter Bradshaw doesn’t like The Time Traveler’s Wife but does like The Butterfly Effect. Me too.
  • Adam Roberts reviews Kim Stanley Robinson’s new novel which strikes me as a better use of a couple of hundred words than these round ups. (Same contributor name fail though.)
  • Jeanette Winterson has written a fantasy children’s drama for the BBC.
