Epic Cover Fail.
Take a look at this cover. That is A Civil Campaign, one of the more recent books in the Miles Vorkosigan saga. Looks like an okay cover, doesn't it? Kind of cheesy, but hey.

Now realize that the couple in the center is meant to be Miles and Ekatarin. Now remember that Miles Vorkosigan is four foot nine. Now remember that Miles should therefore be on an eye level with Ekatarin's breasts and thus looking at them far more obviously. As if that's possible.

Also remember that neither Ekatarin nor Cordelia is blonde, but that's neither here nor there (black-haired and redhead, respectively, in case you're curious. Even more egregious because "roan-red hair" is one of Cordelia's stock descriptions).

I think she's standing in a ditch. Or Miles has one of those "tall guy" suits, like Farquaad's horseback riding armor.

Hi, random person randomly passing by. I always thought the couple was supposed to be Gregor and Laisa, seeing as their engagement was the background to the plot, and their descriptions match better than Miles' and Ekatarin.

But... but... I always assumed that was was a messed-up Gregor and Laisa. Or possibly and even MORE messed up Ivan and Date-of-the-week. But... MILES? O_o

That's just WRONG.
