It’s hard to go wrong with Barbara Walton (or Robert Hale, for that matter), and today’s post doesn’t change my opinion. A gruesome, graphic image (or as Mr. Poe would say, “ghastly, grim, ungainly, gaunt, and ominous”, but that’s neither here nor there) that leaves little to the imagination but certainly does attract your attention. We all know the scene, right? We should, because I’ve told you again and again to read this excellent story. If you don’t believe me, believe Steve Scott. Sylvia is beyond caring at this point, as the vultures argue over who gets the white and dark meat. Ms Walton manages to get a little leg into the picture, but it’s hardly titillating; zoom into it and see the nasty scrapes and bruises on it.

I wish all the covers were this good. It’s stuff like this that makes this blog fun.
