Oh where to start on this one! Firstly we have the blurb quote author's same in a bigger font that the book's Actual writer. Secondly... and speaking of that quote... HP Lovecraft never used the dubious term 'authentic gooseflesh' about Mr Hodgson's classic weird novel - that line apparently comes from a New York Times review which was quoted on the cover of a different edition so someone got very confused! And completing the triple whammy of this high terrible cover we have....Woooooo! Scary corn! And yes, there is no corn, scary or otherwise, in the book either! Truly this is a masterclass in how not to do a book cover!

Celebrating the mad, bad, and dangerous to look at covers inflicted on the book world
