Author and Reddit user Max Barry convinced his publisher to let the Reddit community help pick the cover for his book, Machine Man. As of this writing, cover design #5 lead with nearly 80 votes.

Check it out: “Here are some images. I would deeply love to hear what you think, because getting the cover right is really important, and I’ve been staring at designs so long I can’t remember what books are supposed to look like. And I trust your judgment. Or, at least, I’ve been around Reddit long enough to know there are more smart people here than lunatics.”
