Ian Comments: No one will notice the nude lady disguised as hills and valleys.  Bound to get more sales that way.
Published 1976

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of artI would touch it without protective glovesI have seen worse.

    “Adventure beyond even Space:1999!”. Space:2010 then? Still not impressed.

    You get your filthy mind back on your work, Capability Brown!

    Home, home on the strange, where the sheep and bemused Lewis play…

    The Englishman who went up a hill and stayed.

    “I’m going to murder my landscape gardener!!!!”

    Also kinda looks like she is keeping an earth ball afloat above her face with just the air from her nostrils.

    Ah yes, the far-flung wonders-filled future of 1999.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    ‘Adventure beyond even Space:1999′ could be a whole twenty quid, or ‘Star Maidens’. If we’re lucky, maybe even ‘Blake’s 7′.

    I presume that the back cover shows the Mons Veneris.

    I think it’s kind of pretty, even though it does fall into the “MUST HAVE BOOBIES” category that usually annoys me. Kind of like a downmarket Bosch, what with the weird plants and landscape-that-turns-into-other-stuff.

    Cover artist went for broke on oblique vagina references.

  11. Phil Nichols Says:

    How nice to C.S.Lewis deployed on this, the anniversary of his birth!

    What a clever artist to hide the lady in the landscape like that.

  12. Greg M. Says:

    Sure, there’s a nude lady on the cover, but I’m more concerned with what appears to be Quentin Tarantino’s face staring out at me from the Earth.

    Greg M. scored a real zinger there! :)

    Not as good at tennis as her sister, Serena Development.

  16. Clamps Says:

    Is this a reprint or was this actually written after the Soviets landed a probe on Venus?

  17. Phil Says:

    I get a lot of spam emails about venus development.

  18. Tom Noir Says:

    “Hey, check it out, it looks like that landscape has boobies!”

    “Knock it off, Frank. Get your mind out of the gutter, we’ve got work to do.”

    “No, seriously man!”

    “Shut up, Frank.”
