Scary, Man is…well, scary! I put two concepts together for this title, and I was pleased that the author chose to move forward with the one above, as the horror/thriller market seems to be saturated with book covers that are already pretty nerve-racking. But I'm more interested in the fear that builds over time, grabbing hold of one's consciousness in more subtle ways. In other words, the takeaway is greater if one can say with a whisper what would otherwise need to be shouted. I think this cover captures that idea pretty well.
