Covering Covers: Swords & Dark Magic

Over at a Dribble of Ink, Aidan is showing off, praisingpromoting, acknowledging that the cover for the 2010 Swords & Dark Magic anthology has been released. I don't normally post covers Im not impressed with but this is an anthology I'm really looking forward to. To be fair, it's not a terrible cover but it's definitely not as strong as it could be.

I think this is a case where the anthology has so much potential that to give it a great cover would be unfair to other books.I mean take a look at the ToC
