That's the Russian cover, the one with the Й. Й is a sort of short i or y sound. The text in yellow is the Russian equivalent of "James Blaylock"
written phonetically in Cyrillic. эльфийский корабль = Elven Ship.

Cool to see all of the different interpretations of the cover artists in different languages/cultures.  There's a cover for the Elfin Ship in an alphabet which baffles me a little.  Could be Cyrillic.  Don't think it's  Greek.  But there are some diacritic marks I don't recognize.  A little mystery for the uninitiated/ignorant, like me!  Anyway, there is a face popping out of the cover that looks more like a deranged pro wrestler than a Blaylock character.  Certainly a different take from the way I see the Cheeser, et al., in my mind, but that's all to the good, I say.
