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 week’s Friday Face-Off theme is a cover that from a murder mystery in space: “In space, nobody can hear you scream.” The book for this week’s theme is Isaac Asimov’s The Caves of Steel.
And the winner is… COVER B!
Without a shadow of a doubt, I felt cover B screamed detective/murder mystery. There’s almost a good cop bad cop vibe going on, yet it is filled with sci-fi details that leave you in no doubt as to the genre of the novel.
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’s theme is a cover that is brooding, grey or cloudy: “I don’t know that I brood. I just occasionally take time out to silently consider the specific ways in which others have wronged me.”
One thought on “Friday Face-Off – 28th January 2022”
I agree – cover B very typical 60’s style sci-fi cover too.
