Worst Cover Copy

Don't They Screen for That?
If you read the cover, it says that John Merrill is a pacifist Navy Seal. Um ... no. Doesn't quite work that way. That's not the only detail they get wrong, it's just the most amusing one.

Worst Acting

Laura Albert, Aid Worker
The female aid worker has a monologue here which is shades of Myra Chason in The Lost Idol.
