(This follows part two in our week-long Q&A with Vin about his new novel, “The Miskatonic Manuscript.” Part two is here.)
Q: It’s interesting how many people seem to judge a book by its cover. Many people, looking at the Testament of James cover art, assume it’s a religious tract. Others, reacting to the Miskatonic Manuscript cover art, have assumed it’s pornographic — although in my opinion, it’s an artistic nude, beautifully done by a highly skilled artist, and it also fits the theme nicely — though there’s really not a lot of sex. Will those presumptions influence your choice of cover art in the future?
