PAN CLASSIC COVERS: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY

08 March 2013

Back in the day, before Tor was born and Pan Books joined Macmillan to become Pan Macmillan, Pan Books had a strong stable of classic genre authors. Rooting around in our archive the other day I found some gems, and some pretty garish and amusing covers and redesigned covers to boot. Check them out below, and scroll down for the chance to enter our competition.

I'm not sure about the naked man on the front of the second PUPPET MASTERS cover . . . but love the line on THE ENTITY 'the ultimate novel of supernatural terror and sexual horror'. If that doesn't rope you in . . . 

We also first published Douglas Adams' THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, whose psychedelic cover had a long run until a few years ago when we redesigned it.
