States of Desire

This is probably exactly what they were going for, and they’ve probably never regretted it, but this is an awful cover.  It’s roughly that Tom of Finland style of illustration, maybe that’s why it makes sense- but ick.  The author, amazingly, has his name smaller than the title.  I know, in these other cases it wasn’t the author who chose the font size of his name.  But that is the first person you want to blame.  I think part of what I hate about this drawing is the guy’s expression and the fact that he’s blushing.
