The first time I saw the cover at the back of Good Omens (didn't finish Good Omens yet) as an ad I thought "Huh, must be some kind of political commentary. Probably has nothing to do with the fantasy genre." I only read it because I recognized it at my local book store, read the plot description on the back, and thought "Oh, wait..."
The cover isn't bad, mind you, just saying it won't attract new readers.

Yeah, but I assumed it would just be the author talking about about politics. Kind of like a book written by a former presidential candidate.
Yes, it is hard to take that step back. I knew that before I even started it. I 'do' still like it, however.
It is a little weird seeing someone as awesome as Vimes in the gutter. But then that ended up being the point and it definitely works.
To Doughnut Jimmy:
No, the 25th anniversary cover with the Watchman about to be hit on the head. The chessboard one actually makes it out to be fantasy-meets-murder-mystery, which is much closer to what the book is about. That and social commentary.

What I wanna know is why there hasn't been a Watch movie yet. We get a few cameos here and there but that's it.
Am I gushing too much? I find I either complain or gush about things too often.
