Proposed cover art for "Plague of Zombies" e-book

Diana Gabaldon has posted 5 different versions of the proposed cover art for the upcoming e-book version of "A Plague of Zombies" (to be released in April 2013).

You can see them on her Facebook page.  If you're not on Facebook, or you'd prefer to see all five in one place, you can see the pictures on Compuserve here.  (Click on the attachments at the bottom of Diana's post to see a full-size view.)

My favorite is #4, the one with a pink-purple background and a silhouette of a snake.  What do the rest of you think?

In case you're wondering, this is the cover art for a standalone e-book that will be released in the US and Canada, priced at $1.99, similar to the e-books for "Custom of the Army" and "A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows".

And yes, this is the same story that appears in A TRAIL OF FIRE and in DOWN THESE STRANGE STREETS as "Lord John and the Plague of Zombies". The e-book version will be published under the title "A Plague of Zombies".  Look here for Diana's explanation of why they changed the title.

If you want to let Diana know what you think about the cover art, you can post on Compuserve or on her Facebook page.  I like the fact that she's asking for opinions from her readers!
