Cover Love: The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker

3 years, 1 month, 1 week and 6 days since I’d seen daylight. One-fifth of my life. 98,409,602 seconds since the heavy, steel door had fallen shut and sealed us off from the world

Sherry has lived with her family in a sealed bunker since things went wrong up above. But when they run out of food, Sherry and her dad must venture outside. There they find a world of devastation, desolation...and the Weepers: savage, mutant killers.

When Sherry's dad is snatched, she joins forces with gorgeous but troubled Joshua - an Avenger, determined to destroy the Weepers.

But can Sherry keep her family and Joshua safe, when his desire for vengeance threatens them all? 

I've loved this cover for a long time, and only now had the presence of mind to feature it.  It's simple, clean, and enigmatic.  It gives away a little (the barbed wire, the blood) without telling the whole story.  It also has a sketchy Tim Burtonesque atmosphere that I couldn't possibly not adore.  Not to mention, the story actually sounds really clever and interesting.  You can bet I'll be picking this up.  (Oh, and did I mention the staggered typeface?  Brilliant!)  

Today's cover with a cover comes to us from Korn, covering Prince (or the symbol formerly known as Prince?)'s fantastic disco tune "Word Up."  I know.  Weird blend, right?  And they so very much pull it off.  It's still got plenty of that 80s flavor with an edge that only nu-metal can provide.  Enjoy. 


  1. Oh my, that is an awesome cover. So creepy and pretty at the same time.


    1. The creepiness is what drew me in first. I've got a special love for the eerie!
