I glanced through his archives. Okay so the majority are pretty atrocious, but there are some that aren't any worse than I've seen done by professionals. Several there remind me of old cheap paperbacks for horror/sci-fi in the seventies - and for all anyone knows, without talking to the author, that was the intention.

Cheap shots are easy ... and sometimes even justified ... perhaps. But a lousy cover every day of the month? That's just filler for his site. Amazon had almost 92,000 new releases in the last 30 days, of course there's going to be some pretty ripe choices.
