Daniel’s Art Direction: Alright, just gimme that robot from Star Wars fighting some giant ant-headed thing submerged in clouds or smoke or something, and if the scale makes any sense, you’re fired!
Published 1985 (maybe)

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: 5.93 out of 10)

    So, which robot are you guys rooting for? I’m rooting for the giant, zombie-ant robot.

  2. Jaouad Says:

    The zombie-ant is looking a bit surprised.

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    Love Tap with the Robots.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Good evening. I’m Robot, and with me is Robot. It’s eight o’clock, and time for War.’

  5. Phil Says:

    I thought zombie-ant was looking a bit pouty.

    I have a distinct impression that during the ’70s and ’80s Chris Foss was just turning out SF paintings by the dozen, and book editors were randomly selecting from them for their books.

    I want #17 on my fantasy Robots War team. Small but feisty.

  7. Yoss Says:

    And if you enjoyed “West of Eden” be on the lookout for Harrison’s other novels:

    Peace and War, The First of the Mohicans, and Here With the Wind.

  8. Ian Says:

    Is that #17′s Yo-Yo hanging under its chassis?

    Probot vs. Robo Shin-Chan.

    Trendy cover… the small robot is dancing GANGNAM STYLE!

  12. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The huge red robot appears to be saying “Ooo, that tickles.”

    Let me make this easier on y’all.

    Okay. That is the biggest zombie ant robot I have ever seen. But is this War With the Robots or War OF the Robots? And where can I get one of those?
