April 13, 2012
  • Title: 離島風雲
  • English Title: Island Situation
  • Canon: Barrier Island

  • Country: Taiwan
  • Format: Paperback
  • Year: 1987
  • Publisher: Crown

There is very little to say about this cover. It’s just a photo cover and not a very interesting one at that. Yes, there is a girl. Probably a girl. Part of a girl.

Believe it or not, that wave, as dinky as it is, is bigger than most waves I’ve ever seen in the Gulf of Mexico.

The title translation is just one idea. 離島 means “island”, is “wind” and means “cloud” or “clouds”. Taken together, 風雲 can be “storm clouds” or “a threatening situation”. I like how the Chinese language works. So take your pick: Island Situation, Storm Cloud Island, Threatening Island.
