This was actually kind of fun to read, especially since there are some guy shots in it too. Thanks to Jim Hines for pointing it out.

Lots of fun to read and it left me pondering. It seems to be a marketing ploy that took off closer to 2000 than 1990 (I suppose I could wander off and check dates, but not now...). When discussing sci-fi fantasy cover art in college lit classes, we discussed the way women were portrayed, if pictured at all. But I don't have a single note on cover art where the female model was looking over her shoulder at the audience while presenting her behind. Odd.
