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 windmill: “The tall white windmills that came to her mind. How their skinny long arms all turned, but never together, except for just once in a while two of them would be turning the same way, their arms poised at the same place in the sky.”

This week I am going with Dean Koontz’s Cold Fire.

Cover A:

Cover B:

Cover C:

Cover D:

Cover E:

windmill5

And the winner is… COVER C!

I found this cover to be pretty atmospheric. The dark windmill off to one side, and the red sky with birds flying across the foreground make for an interesting image.

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 an umbrella: “The umbrella won’t stop the rain, but it will help you to get out during rainfall.”

  1. I had a hard time choosing this week as none of them particularly attracted me. Too much big lettering shouting at me it seemed. I guess they selling it on the name recognition of the author. The one you’ve gone for is the best of them I reckon.
