I’ve settled on a final cover for GameSpite Quarterly 4. I respect the fact that so many people seem to be in love with the lawn gnome, but aside from a rather esoteric connection to Half-Life 2 it doesn’t really say “videogames” to me. But, as it happens, the back cover illustration — a minor edit of a lovely photo my fiancée shot a few weeks ago — has continued to grow on me. Much like Adrian Belew, the more I look at it, the more I like it. So, a simple switch and that back cover photo becomes the front, and I will keep the lawn gnome on the back side of the book so as to satisfy reader demand.
If you’d care to have a glimpse of which cover is in store for you (along with what will be between those covers), you can have a look at the GameSpite Quarterly 4 index page. Handy, eh?
