Dear Cousin Jonathan...

Please don't do any more gamebook covers. Thanks.


  1. As I scrolled down that trail of misery I thought to myself "These are the US covers, aren't they?" and then we got to the Corben Fighting Fantasies and yep.

    I quite like Corben in general, but he was not well suited to those covers. I do like how the House of "Hades" seems to be the TARDIS however.

  2. I remember seeing those for the first time and feeling sorry for Americans.

  3. I have fond memories of many of those covers. The Lone Wolf covers are just as good, if not better, than the UK covers. House of Hell Ameican cover is sweet, and really depicts what you've got in the book. Also, the picture of the bloodbeast on the UK cover of Deathtrap Dungeon, I thought, was rather cartoonish. On the other hand, the UK cover of Starship Traveller is just awesome- a great, rather surreal quality.
