Hi Todd, here I am lagging behind again. But this time it's not my fault. Really. Google-Blogger is giving me such a difficult time in composition form. It took me ages to get my post looking presentable (and that's not counting the time spent editing), luckily I wrote the thing earlier or I'd still be at it.

What a pain. Anyway, it's posted now and that's that.

Thanks for picking up that link—a pleasant surprise, since I wasn't even thinking of this meme when I wrote today's post. The one you linked to is actually an old post from almost a year ago, but I think it's the better of the two. :)

Todd, I was cruising here and there looking for fun sci-fi covers for my Pinterest board when I came upon this hoard of paperback sci-fi covers which might interest you. Most of these authors I've never heard of, but I'll bet you're familiar with most of 'em. Still it was fun to see them like this, lined up one after the other. Most of them are really ghastly - speaking artistically, but fun to look through.

Thanks for fighting with the delights of Blogger, Yvette, and for the link. Yes, most of the writers and editors of the books pictured there are well-established, and you're right, that's a pretty undistinguished mix of at best decent, but few excellent, and a whole lot of pedestrian, covers...that the compiler for some reason thinks (particularly in the case of the 1970s covers) wouldn't be used today...I'd disagree, there. You can do a lot better, and one way you might is looking for cover-collections that don't use the term "sci-fi"--often the indicator that the sf fan in question isn't too sophisticated.

Elisabeth, no problem, and thanks...sometimes I "go deep" in the participating blogs if there is something that looks like it might be of interest to the audience here.

Hiya, Todd! Like to join in the fun again if I may:

Thanks again for putting this all together!

Thanks! Reminds me I need to buy some ant traps.
