Friday Face-Off is an idea originally thought up by Books By Proxy which I stole from the fantastic The Tattooed Book Geek. The idea originally was to compare UK and US covers based on an assigned theme each week and choose the winning cover. I will be twisting it slightly: not specifically US and UK covers, just different editions.
This week’s theme is a cover featuring a moon: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars”.
This week I have gone for Jim Butcher’s Fool Moon.
And the winner is… COVER A!
I love the atmosphere in this one. It feels moody, and the moon is prominent adding a sense of darkness to the book. Cover G is a close second this week.
What are your thoughts? Do you agree with my winner, or does one of the others work better for you? Let me know in the comments!
Next week I will be looking for a cover featuring a cat: “In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this”.

I agree with your choice. Given the title, it’s surprising most of the covers don’t make the moon much of a feature…

love A it has a mystique going on there, will put it on my to read ones
You’re right, A has a lot of atmosphere, but for me, it has to be B.
Cover A is definitely the clear winner! The moon is shown prominently, and it just looks COOL!!
Cover A for same reasons very atmospheric
