The Friday Face-Off: Horror

         Friday Face Off New

Welcome to The Friday Face-Off, a weekly meme at Books by Proxy. Join us every Friday as we pit cover against cover, and publisher against publisher, to find the best artwork in our literary universe.  You can find a list of upcoming topics at Lynn's Books.

This week's topic is:

There are so many options for horror and it was hard to choose. In the end, I chose to go with a favorite: The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones. I was pleasantly surprised by how many different editions there were for this one and I had so much fun exploring all of them. Let's have a look!

2020 US Hardcover | 2021 Spanish | 2022 Portuguese

2020 Russian | 2020 US ebook | 2021 German

2021 Large Print | 2022 Polish | 2020 SST Publications

My choice(s):
I honestly love so many of these, so it's hard to choose. I'd have to say the original US hardcover, Russian, and German ones are some of my favorites, probably! I'm really impressed by how unique the Russian edition is and also how beautiful it is, and the rest are just at stunning. 

What cover(s) do you like the most?


  1. The Russian one is really stunning; I like how they all incorporate the deer antlers.

  2. Wow, there are a bunch of new covers since I checked last! I love the Polish cover, and I own the SST edition. Great choice!
