Cover Art! 'The Annotated Sword of Shannara' (Terry Brooks)

Because it just arrived in the post, this morning, and I thought this would tide things over until I can expand on my review of the 'Eisenhorn' trilogy (currently three words, 'I loved it!') Here you go,

I don't know... It looks very nice but I can't help but think that, well... It's the 35th anniversary of the book being published! Surely they could have come up with a cover that looks like it's happy about the fact. I'll admit that I'm not sure what that would involve something with a little more energy than this. Cool looking sword though :o)

Shiney weapons seem to be the new cheesy looking blond guys with swords fantasy covers were full of in the 80s (no matter if they were about blond sword-fighters or not XD).

The new James Barclay Raven-covers all have weapons on them, too and Richard Morgan's books, too...
I do find them better than random warriors/wizzards and so on but it's still all so non-descript. You could just swap around all the swords between the books and it would make no difference.
