Requiem for a Dummy

David Stuart Davies just sent me the cover for his forthcoming novel, Requiem for a Dummy, which is due out from Hale in September. Requiem is the fourth in his acclaimed Johnny One Eye series, and I think the artist has done a fantastic job, really capturing the sinister aspect of the ventriloqust's dummy.

They ARE sinister, aren't they? Agree with you - great cover.

Agree, very sinister. Wasn't Ray Allen (ventriloquist of Lord Charles fame) a Hale author a year or so ago? I still recall William Goldman's ventriloquist horror novel Magic too; creepy stuff!
