Friday Face-Off · Various Things

Friday Face-Off 24th June.


The Friday Face-Off is a new meme created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the UK and US covers of a book with each week  being a certain theme, this week’s theme is a cover which features Weapons.

For the theme this week I have chosen: Gardens of the Moon (The Malazan Book of the Fallen Book 1) by Steven Erikson.

Instead of just comparing the Uk and US cover, For the Face-Off this week I’m going to give you a choice of 5 different covers, labelling them A through to E.

Cover A:


Cover B:


Cover C:


Cover D:


Cover E:



The Winner: Cover E:


I hadn’t actually seen this cover until I decided to choose the book for the face-off this week (I only own the Kindle edition) however as soon as I saw this version I thought it looked great, I admit the font isn’t the best but the depiction of Anomander Rake and his sword Dragnipur is pure awesome.

Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree??

  1. Ooo… what a lovely bunch of covers, overall! I’ve never quite got around to reading this series – and yes. I have to say – your choice is also my favourite. And a close second is the purple one:).

  2. Hah ! what a coincindence , I just reviewed the Book and used 3 of those covers and now I see you had done a face off as well , I hadn’t seen the Anomander Rake cover myself before I googled book cover of Gardens of Moon for my review and I do agree Its the best cover

    just wish they showed Crone a bit closer to Rake like on his shoulder or something , I like Crone
