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.
