It’s that time again! Time to highlight some of my favorite fantasy covers!
Now before anyone completely loses their minds when they scroll further down the page and discovers the covers I’m highlighting this time around please let me explain. Sure, I realize the franchise I’m focusing on is usually labeled a space opera or science fiction, but it has come to my attention in the last week that many critics consider it a space fantasy. A fact which was quite shocking to me, since I’ve never heard of the term before. But who am I to argue with critics? I mean, those people are never wrong, right?
As you view my favorite covers from the past, please also understand I am not commenting on the reading quality of the books themselves (though there are many of my picks which I’d heartily recommend), but the fact that I thought they had great covers. Covers which captured my attention and made me want to open them up, immersing myself in all the amazing places and events the image on the front promised me. You will also see that more than a few are comic or graphic novel covers, which I had to include for the simple fact they are too stunning to not recognize.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy this retrospection of this franchise!
Splinter of the Mind’s Eye? Really man?!? I know that it isn’t Foster’s fault, dealing with incomplete info, but come on, twincest? EVERYBODY needs to forget that book ever existed.
Now, the Old Republic and Kenobi books, those look awesome indeed!
