Mr. David Thacker said...

Spiral please

Difficult to choose just one of the four as the best cover , but I went for Wereworld .

Karen said...

Spiral looks amazing - David Wyatt designed all the Tunnles series.

Leighton Johns said...

Spiral for me - feels like you're getting sucked into the cover!

Carmen said...

This one's a toughie!

I actually went with Storm Singing but it was by a whisper - very hard to call this one!

Ian Kenworthy said...

I went for the Storm Singing on this one. I find it enchanting. The others didn't do it for me this time.

Barry Hutchison said...

Wow. Very difficult, not just because all the covers are great, but because I know three of the authors. Now I know how poor Curtis Jobling felt last week.

I will consider my vote carefully.

And hey, what a fantastic prize! What happens if I win?

Witchfinder gets my vote.

dipsyjan said...

Gosh what a hard one to call - gave it to Spiral in the end!

Jo Bling said...

You've hit the nail on the head with "Poor Curtis" there B - if you vote for Wereworld I'll be able to relocate my family from the hole in the ground (covered in tarpaulin) to a shoebox in't middle't road!

Sorry Mr Jobling, but I just had to give it to Storm Singing!

Somthing about that cover just moved me so profoundly..maybe because it had that wintery feel..I don't know! :0)
