Welcome to the Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in the literary universe.  If you want to join us next week, check out next week’s predetermined them, choose a book, compare two or more different covers available for that book, then name your favorite. A list of future weeks’ themes are available at Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme is:

‘‘…but Icarus flew too close” – a cover featuring the Sun

Difficult topic for me personally.  After some thought and some deep digging in my reading list, I finally stumbled on a speculative book with a great cover featuring the sun!

    I actually like #3 and #5 the best. I have a copy of this but I can’t remember which cover it is, I’ll have to track it down, now I’m curious!

  2. I like the last cover more than the others: there is something quite powerful and fascinating in the quality of light there… 🙂

  4. Didn’t think I would like an “old school” cover, but that was the first one that caught my eye too!

    I totally agree with this choice. Interestingly, the figures in the lower left almost seem to be posing for a photo!
