Friday Face-Off – 10th January 2020

Friday Face-Off – 10th January 2020

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.

Welcome back to Friday Face-Off! This week’s theme is a cover that is vintage sci fi. For this I’ve picked Have Space Suit – Will Travel by Robert A. Heinlein,

Cover A:

scifi1

Cover B:

scifi2

Cover C:

scifi3

Cover D:

scifi4

Cover E:

scifi5

Cover F:

scifi6

And the winner is… COVER B!

This one screams vintage sci-fi to me. The two space travellers exploring an alien planet and its wildlife, it really invokes the spirit of adventure and exploration.

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 depicts a horizon: “Your “beautiful” ship killed its crew, Doctor.”
