Helen Yentus: Peace and The Pesthouse

Two gorgeous covers with amazing photos from Magnum and Gallerystock. Both matte, Peace is gritty. And the title in The Pesthouse is embossed. Feel it. Both books are pretty dark. Peace is a short novel about a group of soldiers marching through a wintry Italian hillside, weary of constant sniper danger and questioning their sargeant's recent murder of a woman on the road. The Pesthouse is a novel set in a future America, where civilization has deteriorated and people attempt to trek out east to catch ships going to Europe while avoiding bandits and slave traders.

Kulick Spectacular

Recently saw the top two in the bookstore. Couldn't help including some other Gregg Kulick favorites. And I just watched Twilight. Some cool things going on in the Gaiman covers...the fly has some weird mechanical solar-panel wings...and the spider has four human eyes, at least two hands, and appears to be juggling a skull and a flaming heart.
