Cover Characteristics is a meme by Sugar and Snark- every week a characteristic is selected and we post 5 books with that week's theme.
This week's pick- Retro
Going rogue again- this week I am taking a look at books with retro covers. And since SciFi Month begins tomorrow I'm getting a bit of an early start as these are all SF books.
A favorite cover of mine. There's so much to see here that the cover doesn't do it justice- I've included the full artwork below (bottom of post).
This isn't really a retro cover as it's a fairly new release, but it has that retro feel for me.
A book about a world orbiting a green star, with huge trees that ascend miles into the air.
Of course an Earth guy ends up there, although this one is kinda different as he keeps taking on the bodies of people who've died. The usual planetary romance stuff.
I don't know- the boat's silly but there's some guys on rocks and a city in the background- this was something you saw a lot with this artist (there always seems to be water). Plus it's set on a moon of Jupiter.
Love the cover- and especially the city in the bottom right corner, which is easy to miss.
Another cover- same artist I think. Pretty old school, of course the woman is upside down on a lizard SMH.
