          Well...... You can't judge a book by the cover.

                Revival Officially Announced
                February 12th, 2014 9:00:27 am

                We now have permission to officially announce the release of the novel, Revival, which will be published by Scribner and Hodder & Stoughton on November 11, 2014.

                In a small New England town, over half a century ago, a shadow falls over a small boy playing with his toy soldiers. Jamie Morton looks up to see a striking man, the new minister. Charles Jacobs, along with his beautiful wife, will transform the local church. The men and boys are all a bit in love with Mrs. Jacobs; the women and girls feel the same about Reverend Jacobs—including Jamie’s mother and beloved sister, Claire. With Jamie, the Reverend shares a deeper bond based on a secret obsession. When tragedy strikes the Jacobs family, this charismatic preacher curses God, mocks all religious belief, and is banished from the shocked town.
                Jamie has demons of his own. Wed to his guitar from the age of 13, he plays in bands across the country, living the nomadic lifestyle of bar-band rock and roll while fleeing from his family’s horrific loss. In his mid-thirties—addicted to heroin, stranded, desperate—Jamie meets Charles Jacobs again, with profound consequences for both men. Their bond becomes a pact beyond even the Devil’s devising, and Jamie discovers that revival has many meanings.

                      I wouldn't say it looks like crap, just TREMENDOUSLY uninspired, as the other photos in this thread show. I guess they realize they could put a King book in a brown paper bag and it would still sell millions, so why waste money on cover art.

                        The cover reminds me of the UK editions of The Stand with the lightening.

                          That's the one I posted up above, John. I bought that copy at The Alchemist's Head bookstore in Dublin, many years ago.

                            The Uncut version of The Stand is also similar:

                              A brown paper bag on the cover would be better.
