The Tripods, which we discussed a few weeks ago, are back in a new edition. I’m not sure how I feel about the covers. The original U.S. covers have a spooky coolness to them while the latest iteration is more literal. But there have been two or three (how does one count these?) generations of kids since the mid-1960s, and who knows what those covers say to ten-year-olds today? Google images for “Christopher tripods cover art” to see an array of changing tastes.
Here they come. Down the Street. You can hear. Their little feet.
