A to Z Challenge: Richard Hescox

The A to Z Challenge is a meme posting every day (except Sundays) in April. Check out the list of 2000+ participants and follow along for 26 days (and 26 letters) of fun. The 2-letter code after each blog name may help narrow your choices - (BO) is Books, (WR) is Writing, (PH) is Photography . . . and, if you're concerned about those NSFW pages, (AC) is Adult Content.

For my theme, I thought I'd do something I generally try very hard not to do, and that is judge a book by its cover. Yes, this year my A to Z Challenge is all about the cover artists who give the books we know and love so much damn shelf appeal.

Continuing through the alphabet, we have another bit of a cheat today, with Richard Hescox lending the last letter of his name to the theme:







Although not as prolific as he was during the 80s and early 90s, Hescox is still going strong. In fact, he was recently selected to provide the cover art for the Subterranean Press edition of George R.R. Martin's A Clash of Kings.
