Diggler’s Art Direction: What we need is a man in a hot tub doing some New Wave Impressionistic dance moves for his girlfriend on the video phone. Meanwhile we’ll have him being squirted by red dye for artistic effect… What do you think?

    Nude paintball? Hmm, kinky…

    Also, isn’t this the bloke from the previous day’s cover? Gets about, doesn’t he?

  2. Phil Says:

    He’s seen the Patchwork Girl reflected in his shaving mirror, and it’s caused him to cut himself. Very badly. In an unusual place.

    Hey, let’s prove it’s SF by joining the letters of the author’s name together like the letters in the Star Wars logo.

    Hey, make your own Star Wars-styled Larry Niven logo here:

    In the future, Barbra Streisand will be watching YOU in the bathroom!

    Those hands need some help.

    Does it look to you like one of the old abstract sf covers of the ’50s – ’60s got laid down on the floor, turned 3-D, and made into the environment for this one?

  6. Jane Says:

    Like the strategically-placed splash…And is that a ting around Bubble Lady?

    LARRY NIVEN
    Episode XIII: A NEW BOOK

    It is a time of shoddy pocket-book releases.
    Editors, releasing out of tiny offices in New York,
    try to keep alive the SF boom that began with
    George Lucas’s blockbuster movies.
    But the GALACTIC INCOMPETENCE of SF book
    art threatens to wreck the SF surge and end
    all hopes for publishers…

    [PAN DOWN to midtown New York, where a skinny, frightened artist is chased down the streets by a much larger, irate editor who shouts: “You call this a professional cover? You fink! You fraud!]

    Ah, the ‘Galactic Space League of YMCA haters’ strike again.

  10. Hep C Says:

    There is an unforgivable omission of the ting! tag here.

  11. Yoss Says:

    You can tell by the forearm development that he’s a lefty. I’ll err on the side propriety and not speculate on his hot tub activities.

  12. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    The water was so fine that it caused him to spew red light from his mouth and chest in ecstacy. Observing these carnal activities via camera is some red-haired lady with no sense of shame whatsoever.

  13. The Tag Wizard Says:

    @Hep C – Not sure if it’s Ting! or Lens Flare! Well pointed out, I’ll add both!

    Not good enough. Make that boiling water, make the dancer a Freddy Krueger look-a-like and surround the tub with futuristic, puddle-like basins.
    Then we have a deal.

    I Think this guy was last seen in Madonna’s “Vogue” video.
