Thanks to Bob Pattison for this nice Empty Trap cover. I’m generally not a fan of the later covers, but this creepy William Schmidt effort isn’t bad at all. Sure, you would think that the setting sun and the cloud are proof positive that this cover is a McGinnis, but you would be wrong — I can actually read the signature for once! I’m giving away no secrets (well, not many) because anyone who has read Steve Scott’s outstanding review of this book (and if you haven’t, then shame on you) will already know that the arm belongs to Sylvia and will already know how she came to be subbouldered. Yep, that’s a word. Now it is.

    Yesterday’s cover shows up fine (Firefox on the Mac) but not today’s.
