Uh, I have a question...why did I have to shave most of my body hair off?Click for full image

Naked people? You’re right, we can’t have two yellow glowing buck-naked people standing on some far away planet, with the man pointing upwards towards some awful green moon that takes up 80% of the cover. Oh I know, cover their jibblets with some storks. And we’re sorted!

Happy St. Patricks day! – Good Show Sir

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of artI would touch it without protective glovesI have seen worse. Far, far worseInteresting, but I would still read it in publicMiddling: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lamé picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show, Sir.... Good Show! (Average: 8.89 out of 10)

    Now I have to admit I have a copy of this book and the cover is actually really good. A very 70′s looking cryptic cover which I enjoy. This one is just awful. Well at least I thought it was terrible till I just found this:

    OUCH!

    Given how little a section of alien stork is being used to preserve their modesty in each case, one can only infer that Space Adams aren’t exactly well endowed and Space Eves trim their hair very close (except where they need it long for nork coverage).

    If I were you, I wouldn’t drink from that watering hole.

  4. SI Says:

    Yea that would be the same water that turned the turtles into Ninja Turtles!

    Also, is it just me or is that mans knees… odd. Maybe its just me but they look about a foot long.

    I didn’t know CS Lewis was a self-published author? That cover belongs on a creepy panel van that drives around a middle school.

    Despite awful cover, this is a fantastic read! And I believe the enormous green thing is supposed to be Earth.

  7. SI Says:

    Maybe it is just meant to be a moon around Venus? If it was earth I am pretty sure they would have drawn some land masses.

  8. Tom Noir Says:

    The naked pair on the cover IS fairly representative of the book’s content. What puts it over the top is the strategically placed storks.

    Which by the way is the name of my new band.

    Tom> Yea… the end of the book. I’ll have to take a picture of my cover. It’s brilliant.

    Strategically Placed Storks – Sounds a bit post-rock to me! Good luck!

    ‘Disproportionately Small Feet, party of five, your booth is ready. Small Feet party? Are you here? Where are you? Disproportionately Small Feet party?’

    admin: I call for the resurrection of the ‘fantastical rock star’ tag! We have seen many of them lo these months and years, and SCADS remain untagged! How are we to find them?

    Split-second timing, that artist. Brilliant!

    I move we replace Disapproving CS Lewis by Space Stork. Storks were obviously invented for covering up nipples and the like.
