‘A potent force stalking the dark ways of the night.’


Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme being hosted by Books by Proxy .   This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers.  The rules are fairly simple and can be found here.  Each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite (stop on over to Tenacious Reader to post your link so we can all check out each others choices).  Simples.   This week the theme is:

2nd Sept: Hell is empty and all the devils are here โ€“ A cover with a demon or demonic creatures.

My choice this week: The Devil Rides Out by Dennis Wheatley.  It’s a long time ago since I read this and to be honest, I remember very little about it!  But, the cover fits so here goes:


Which is your favourite?

If you fancy joining in with FFO the themes for the next few weeks are below.  Iโ€™ve listed these as BooksbyProxy is currently a bit swamped and MIA as a result.  Donโ€™t worry, ordinary service will be resumed soon๐Ÿ˜€

9th Sept: Pack up your troublesโ€ฆ and โ€ฆ leave โ€“ A cover with some form of luggage

16th Sept: A bouquet for you mโ€™lady โ€“ A cover featuring a flower/flowers.

23rd Sept: Wee, sleekit, cowโ€™rin, timorous beastie โ€“ A cover with a beast or beasts.

30th Sept: This solitary tree! A living thing โ€“ a cover with a tree or trees.

7th October: Consumed by the darkness within, it hides all our sinsโ€ a cover that is predominantly black.

14th October: There was once a princess, who lived in the top of the highest tower โ€“ a cover with a castle.

    I like the last cover with the horse and scythe. ๐Ÿ˜€

    I agree with your choice, Lynn:). He is downright creepy…

    • @lynnsbooks

      He is creepy and also a little bit perfect for the era I think!

        Absolutely! I also like the red cover, by the way… It was quite a close-run thing for me. I loved the book you chose, btw!

      • @lynnsbooks

        The red cover is quite impressive – it has more to it than at first meets the eye.

    I have never heard of this book but does have some suitably scary covers! I’m not sure I can pick a favourite as they creep me out lol ๐Ÿ˜›

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, these are books that I read many years ago – to be honest, they’re probably very tame in the current market! But, I can’t barely remember them and I don’t think that you would enjoy them even with the vague memories that I have. I only picked them to go with the theme really and the cover I chose is so perfect for that era!

    I fancy the last one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s very eye catching – it makes me smile that one, something about the way the horse looks as though it’s stubbornly refusing to move!
