Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover Issue 99: Science Fiction (Part 4)

Do! Judge A Book By Its Cover is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I pay tribute to some of the best and brightest the publishing world has to offer in the way of book cover design. This feature is inspired by Katie’s feature Cover Love on her blog One Page At A Time. The idea is being used with her gracious permission.

Some of my favourite covers this week include Attack Of The 50 Foot Wallflower by Christian McKay Heidicker, That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston, Ruse by Cindy Pon, The Oceans between Stars by Kevin Emerson, The Pioneer by Bridget Tyler, Here and Now and Then by Mike Chen, Dealing In Dreams by Lilliam Rivera and The Similars by Rebecca Hanover.

Please Note: I’ve done my best to credit the designers and artists responsible for the beautiful covers below, but was unable to find this information for a number of those listed. If you know of an uncredited designer responsible for any of these book covers, please let me know and I would be happy to include proper attribution in this post. Their work is lovely and deserves to be credited.
