While kevinswatch.com has all sorts of cool TCTC & The Gap Cycle covers, at the behest of Usivius I've decided to PM him (kevins-watch, hate the hyphen Razz ) and start a stockpile of our own here, here are the only covers I've ever owned:

I like those covers, Murrin!

The UK editions of SRD's book always seem to have better cover art than the US ones, imo.

I've got this version of Mirror of Her Dreams, but I never found a copy of A Man Rides Through that goes with it:

Hey, great!
Yah, the two micheal Wealan covers are what I got. I LOVE the depiction of Mordant in the background of the first one, otherwise, they are so-so to me.
I think the recent paperback editions have a better, more vague dipictions that I like. And the UK cover of Runes is great! Although I do like Wealan's art.
I doubt that the armoured man in either the UK edition or the paperback versions depicts anyone specific. The original covers, however seem to show specific persons (Wealan is known for reading a book before he paints a cover). The first is obviously Geredan and Terisa. and the second shows the same couple in a mirror that (whatsisname --- the hunchback Imager... damn...) is looking at them through...

Those are the covers I have too MM. It took me a long time to find a matching AMRT, but I was lucky...eventually. (Hell, took me years to find any copy of it.) (My first copy of it had the same cover as danlo's). The ones I have are my favourites, which is always nice. Same with my Chrons...(Except the one mismatch, WGW. *sigh*)

Well, if that is supposed to be Master Gilbur, then I think Whelan drew him too handsomely. I pictured Gilbur as a vicious-looking bastard.

That's not exactly how I pictured Terisa.. (well, at least not the headgear!)

As for Murin's and DLB's covers, I've seen those on some trade paper editions for the last couple years.

Or she just stepped out of the mardi gras parade. Big Grin I think that headgear might be more appropriate for the "Sun Sage" right? Hahahahahah Thoolah would have a field day with that. Big Grin

I'm a big fan of Michael Whelan's artwork. Everything he does is absolutely beautiful to me.
