Thoughtful Thursday: Identify last month’s covers

Today’s covers all come from books we reviewed in December 2012. Once you identify a book cover, in the comment section list:
1. The number of the cover (1-12)
2. The author
3. The book title

Please identify just one cover that has not yet been identified correctly so that others will have a chance to play.
If you get it correct, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a book of your choice from our stacks.

Winners are notified in the comments, so make sure to check the notification box or remember to check back in about 10 days.

Good Luck!

KAT HOOPER, who started this site in June 2007, earned a Ph.D. in neuroscience and psychology at Indiana University (Bloomington) and now teaches at the University of North Florida. When she reads fiction, she wants to encounter new ideas and lots of imagination. She wants to view the world in a different way. She wants to have her mind blown. She loves beautiful language and has no patience for dull prose, vapid romance, or cheesy dialogue. She prefers complex characterization, intriguing plots, and plenty of action. Favorite authors are Jack Vance, Robin Hobb, Kage Baker, William Gibson, Gene Wolfe, Richard Matheson, and C.S. Lewis.

    #7 is Snuff, by Terry Pratchett.

    By the way, I won the Thoughtful Thursday of two weeks ago, the 10th of January, but I don’t know if my emails to Tim got through, because I twice got the message that I had something called “illegal characters” in my post. What that meant, I still don’t know, as I was fairly sure that I didn’t type anything out of the ordinary.

  3. Alan Braeley /

    #1 is The Folly of the World by Jesse Bullington.

    Could have swore I had number 5! Now I’m digging through all your reviews looking. Which I guess is the point. :)

  10. Does the “guess again after a week” rule still apply?

  11. Here I am…guessing again after a week! :)

    #6 is The Steam Mole by Dave Freer

  12. Melanie Goldmund /

    #2 is White Wolf, by David Gemmell.

    When will we find out who won? It’s been more than two weeks already.

    • Correct!

      I think Tim usually chooses these on the Sunday after it’s been up a week which means he may have missed it this past Sunday. He’s busy with grad school decisions, I think. I’ll give him a nudge.

  13. And the winner is Michelle Miller!
    Michelle, please contact Tim with your choice and a US address.
