I worked in a public library. I saw literally thousands of books every week; the good, the bad, and the truly hideous. These are the covers from the latter category. Joining me (Maughta) is the ever-popular pinch hitter (and handy husband) DocTurtle.

Had that illustrator ever actually SEEN a woman?
She is sporting a mighty set of arse antlers...
At least this artist realizes that the only way those pants can stay on is if they bite her butt.
Damn. I don't want to be a skinny basher, but -- WHERE IS HER ASS???
I found this while looking for "really bad book covers," so I know I'm late to the party here. (1) The author said that he'd never buy or want to write a book that had a cover like that. (2) The author of course has no choice in the artwork. (3) *I* never want to buy a book that has a cover like that. BUT (4) I have read some of the author's other work (under a different name) and turns out that this book is good. Really good. So I hope that some of you give it a try despite the cover.(5) Wish I could find the post--somewhere out there in the blogosphere--where someone posted copies of zillions of book covers that all have scantily clad women in black leather with tattoos seen from the back holding a weapon. It's hysterical how many of them there are!
Hmm, here's one (it's a video w/music). http://www.scifiguy.ca/2008/10/urban-fantasy-paranormal-book-cover.html but I think the ones I saw were just images, not a video.
