Even dragons can be whitewashed

DragonFAIL! Check it out:

Srsly, the dragon cover makes me all sorts of sad, because the title and contents are just so evocative. As I commented on rosefox's post (sorry, wasn't intending to hijack it): It frustrates me that a SFF anthology by authors of Chinese descent called The Dragon and the Stars gets a Western dragon on the cover. What the hell? I don't need a cheesy Chinese brushstroke font, or something that goes overboard on the ethnic look, but nothing about the book cover says Chinese culture at all.
