It is horrible, but I think you are confusing the Shining (crazy guy in hotel on a mountain) and the Stand (flupocalypic).

It is a horrible cover for either, though.

If it was for the Stand maybe you could argue it was about one of the ladies in it, so might not be so horrible. The Shinning though it is bottom of the barrel. No that is unfair to barrel bottoms.

She looks pretty good. She wears the post-epidemic apocalypse pretty well. It reminds me of my first creative writing teacher. Her first book was selling better in Germany than anywhere else. Then she found out the cover is a blond chick wearing nothing over her breasts but a well-placed cowboy hat. This seemed like an odd cover for a story about driving across the country trying to find a doctor who could treat her son, but it was selling, anyway.

Honestly, if Terms of Endearment sported a picture of Jenna Jameson on the cover wearing nothing but a set of pasties, I'd probably read it and not feel the slightest bit depressed until I got to the end and discovered that she's not in the book.
