All the bits that don't belong on the other blog

This marks the first time I’ve disliked one of Raymond Swanland’s covers. I love the man’s art and feel he does some of the best covers around, but this is just shit. Some have pointed out that the pose is physically impossible (and I am inclined to agree), but Abercrombie and fans are arguing the opposite. Not that it really matters because the possibility of the pose does not change the fact that the main character—supposedly a strong female character, from what I hear… because I haven’t read anything from Abercrombie since Last Argument of Kings—is showing a bit of ass to make sure the horny fanboys have something to wank to while they cry over how much money they just dropped on the book.
