Frozen wastes. A spectral Lovecraftian sky. Bodies half-buried in the snow. All on the cover of a novel with the words "The Terror" written across its front. It was as if they'd designed this book with me in mind. With a Barnes & Noble's gift card in hand, I was helpless not to buy the damn thing. This is how you sell literary horror.

Anyway, just thought I'd share with you this melding of the perfect cover design with the perfect title. On to the enjoying of the weekend.
