Once again, I’ve spotted a familiar cover in LibraryThing’s latest batch of Early Reviewers books. This time it’s The Rape of the Muse by Michael Stein (2011), which I recognized because Stacked recently discussed a lookalike cover, Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey (2010). When I plugged these covers into TinEye, I found two more lookalikes: Simply Wicked by Lisa G. Riley (May 2008) and Brilliant Insanity by Yvonne Mason (July 2008).
I dislike all of these covers (I think that mask looks creepy), but if I had to pick one to read, I’d go with Guardian of the Dead. I also think it’s interesting that the mask is slightly different on each cover—and that three of the four covers use red fonts. What do you think? Do any of these covers appeal to you?
