Every cover of The Last One Left depicts a power boat, as long as “every” can be defined as “69% of those depicting anything at all or 75% if you include any general aquatic theme or 100% if you only count American paperbacks”. This one of them. I started this blog as Not A Fan of the “circle” covers but have reluctantly been won over to some of them because I like the way they tend to incorporate the circle into the artwork. Unfortunately, this example does not; it merely shrinks a previously used cover picture (I would link to it but it seems I haven’t posted it yet) down to Way Too Small and plasters a circle under it.

The scan is not good enough to read the collection ID but I can’t find anything better. Anybody? Anybody? Bueller?

Update (09/23/2013): Added cover artist. This cover was used sometime after the 19th printing.
