I was like there is a Vonnegut and a Priest and Matheson and Clarke and so on. Not as tasteful when it comes coloring,covers as the old SFM books but it works.
They certainly are striking and draw your attention, a bit like the old Gollancz yellow jacket series.
However, the only one of the new cover styles I have read ("Inverted World"), I was disappointed by the fact that the plastic sheet on the cover has peeled away from the edges quite badly. If the next one I buy is like that, I shall be very disappointed.
