TT: Spirit Fox

This week’s Throwback Thursday: Spirit Fox by Mickey Zucker Reichert & Jennifer Wingert What I Love about This Cover:  This cover is photo-realistic, rather than being a painted work.

TT: The Dragonbone Chair

This week’s Throwback Thursday / TT: The Dragonbone Chair by Tad Williams What I Love about This Cover:  There’s a level of tension in the characters’ faces–you just know something that arrow to the chest is bad news.
