Friday Face-Off – 9th November 2018

The Friday Face-Off is a meme originally created by Books by Proxy and now hosted over at Lynn’s Books. The idea is to compare the different covers of a book with each week being a certain theme.

This weeks’ theme is a cover featuring a critter of the eight legged variety: ‘All right! They’re spiders from Mars! You happy?’

For this theme I have gone with Lord of the Spiders by Michael Moorcock.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:


And the winner is… COVER E!

I went for something a little different this week, an old-school sci-fi/fantasy style. The orangutan-arachnid hybrid caught my eye. It interests me enough to want to read it.

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 weeks’ theme is a scary cover: ‘There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.’
