I've always been a sucker for "musty old paperbacks at yard sales and library sales," and I tend to gravitate to older books that I, theoretically would like to read. But admittedly, I am sometime drawn to...plain old cool covers.

Cover design by ???
Who is Oedipa Maas? And what was she doing when the Paranoids blew out all the lights? What was the strange legacy of Pierce Inverarity that first led her to the world-wide conspiracy known as the Tristero System, and then onto the mystery and enigma of America itself?
