Dan'l wrote great wisdom on covers, but...

I just recently bought the omnibus Jack Vance _Dying Earth_ trade pb (my
Lancer _Dying Earth_ is falling apart, etc.).  The cover depicts a genre
spaceship hovering over a genre future-abstract planet's surface.  This book
is published by Orb, which, as I recall, is Tor (Wolfe's publisher) under an
assumed name.  _Dying Earth_ is, as I hope we all know,
magic&fantasy&manners set in the far, far future.  Certainly a Unique, but
the people looking for spaceships are going to be very confused.

Explain that one, please, Dan'l.
