Fantasy fashion trends. Heroines are starting to wear more sensible shoes these days and their weapons are more compact. Damsels in distress have almost disappeared but cleavage is here to stay.
Well thank goodness heroines are wearing more appropriate footwear these days. I feel better about the future of the universe already. Seriously, I’ve never been too hung up on the accuracy, or even the plausibility, of fantasy and sci-fi cover art though I do appreciate good cover art. The worst covers, in my opinion, are those that are too simple, lacking in detail. It’s nice if it appears to be somehow related to the story inside but mostly, just give me something fun to look at.
UPDATE: Oops. I think I must have typed this in my sleep. Fixed two really, really stupid errors.
