    Have to go with Duma Key here. Front and back of the cover, it is a fully realized picture that is beautiful and terrifying at the same time. I can actually feel the malevolence building in the distance.
    Margaret Emmie Mackey Catoe, you are, have been, and always will be my soulmate, and I love you.

    Ummmm...What he said

    Desperation. It's just perfect. And I also love how they connected it to The Regulators.

    I absolutely love some of the others, but my vote went with the Night Shift cover; an old favorite.

    Desperation

    I love the entire cover, but I am especially enamored of the doll in the foreground, its red eye bulging out toward the reader and its green eye staring blankly into nothingness. That element alone perfectly captures the emotion conveyed by the word desperation: no child willingly parts with a much beloved toy.
    It'll take a lot more than words and guns,
    A whole lot more than riches and muscle.

    The hands of the many must join as one.
    And together we'll cross the river.

    I nominated it and it was thirded during the nomination process. I think it's one of the more original covers I have seen, not just of King's books. I love the colors, the gradual sunset coloring of the text, the dizzying 3D effect, the font, everything.

    I like the Just After Sunset cover as well. At first I wasn't too sure about it, but it's grown on me.
    And the Duma Key cover I love everything with the one exception of the canvas with the stuff jumping out of it. I don't know, for some reason that just really turned me off. I wish they had omitted that, and maybe stuck Perse off in the background.

    Yes. Don't know about Perse, but the frog and the harpoon make the thing definitely cartoonish. Don't get me wrong, bears love cartoons... but Duma Key was more than three-dimensional, and that thing in the corner makes it plainer, simpler than it was.

    The canvas in the corner is my favorite part of the cover for Duma Key. It seems very much like Dali, who was the main artistic inspiration.
