Don't know which is worse, the titles or name of the author on the left. Same guy though.

I've seen the image on the right cover a couple of times. I think it's the same guy too, but I know someone who is familiar with some of the popular cover models. I think I'll pop her a line and see if she can get as an answer.

Unless it's photoshopped, their noses are different.

Agree. And the cheek bones and the ear. Besides #2 seems to have a reddish or blondish beard. I find him sexier :)

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.

Same guy. slightly different pose. More highlights on one picture make the nose look different, but it's just a matter of photo-doctoring. For sure those blue eyes have been photoshopped -- they don't match the rest of the guy's coloring at all.

Yeah there's a lot of odd highlighting in the pic on the left. The blue eyes don't look natural, either photo shop or maybe he had contacts in for that shot.
