1. Jason Brown says:

    Sometimes, actually very rarely, I’ve noticed how a book cover with nothing more than a blank black background and the title will seem bland and worthless but the story itself is worthwhile. Last Call by John L. Robinson comes to mind.
    Minimalist style can also be useful if done with both taste and atmosphere to the story, such as Through the Fury to the Dawn by Stu Jones (gas mask and fog, scratchy title font, giving it the dreadful creepy vibe the story itself contains).

  2. The last paragraph sums it all up for me.

What do you think?
