[quote=""DianeL""]The Caustic Cover Critic has amassed a truly stunning collection of covers with a "woman clutching her head in a field" photo. She has a disappearing scarf! :p [/quote]

Check this out. I can't find the cover at GR so you'll have to look at the
Ammy page.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

That's what I thought, but it's still the same dress, isn't it?

Those last two covers look like video game art, almost.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Terrible IMO. Did you know the male on the right hand side cover is supposed to be Henry VIII?

The woman in the left hand side cover looks like an elf to me.
