Q: What am I looking at?
A: The Paperback Beauty Pageant judges books by their covers. By creating synopses of the apparent plots as depicted by the art on the front, the reader is saved the hassle of concerning themselves with the contents.
Q: What’s all this other crap?
A: For those who wish to appear smart and opinionated at parties, the inside bits are reviewed and rated. Following that, questions are provided for people who wish to challenge their own interpretations of the cover art, or for lazy teachers.
Q: Who’s doing the judging?
A: The Judge of the Paperback Beauty Pageant, final arbiter of worth, ultimate adjudicator of spiffiness, the executive decider supreme, is an arrogant, loveable ham.
Q: You do a lot of science fiction.
Q: Who did your logo?
Q: Where do you get your books?
A: I buy most of my paperbacks at The Armadillo’s Pillow, an independent bookstore in Chicago. And eBay. Hoo boy, if you could see my PayPal bills…
Q: Where can we find you on social media?
A: Stuff from this blog is regularly posted to www.reddit.com/r/badscificovers/
