|Mindwerks Cover by Kevin Long|
Long before I began collecting Dungeons and Dragons books I wandered in many comic book/gaming shops in search of Defenders comics, and this book was always there. The woman with the impossible bosom and that menacing smile, surrounded by those neutered, demonic clones in vats.
For years I dreamed about that cover wondering what sort of mad game RIFTS was and what sort of strange people must play it. Every time I would wonder about those comic book/gaming shops I would pick up this book and wonder what those scientists wandering about the laboratory were thinking. Did they think that growing sexless demons was a good idea?
And why is that woman wearing a cape and holding a mechanical heart?
