Painting for In the Rift: Glenraven II — by Clyde Caldwell
This one is a bit closer to what I would have chosen, in that the main character, Kate Beacham, looks a lot tougher and more ready to take care of herself than Jayjay did on the cover for Glenraven. You still get no indication that she’s from a small town in North Carolina, or that she’s been transported into an alternate universe — again, this was the publisher’s choice of scene to illustrate. Clyde is very true to the scene. I just wish Jim Baen would have picked one that conveyed more of the sense of the novel.
On this one, too, I had no input.
