I knew I remembered this picture from somewhere!

Splash 2 – Mermaids from outer space!
Lunch is escaping!
Top alien: “It would have worked, too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!”
Those Cornish seagulls get everywhere.
The portal opens up on top of shoreline rocks, possibly on a seaside cliff. Two of them are trying to catch her before she either injures herself badly or runs to her death. The third guy is trying to hit the seagulls.
Is that you, Ethel? Whaddaya think you’re doing? You git your clothes on!
That lady looks more like Bugs Bunny’s horse than a real human being.
Don’t look back lady … that’s Daft Punk … BEHIND YOU!
@Bibliomancer. I’m on the job!
Well, there is both tit and tans in the title so I guess this cover is literally correct.
@anon – I like to think the third guy is giving a good ole one of these:
FORGE OF THE TITANS
GET OFF HER TITS, NOA
Also, OFF GO EARTHEN TITS, TITS GAFFE NOT HERO, and TITS GOOF THEN FARE.
Alien 1: “Away with you woman, Health and Safety regulations clearly state you must be wearing appropriate clothing and eye protection at all times around the Forge!”
@DSWBT – OFF GO EARTHEN TITS indeed!
How about FINE TEATS GO FORTH.
I’m surprised Baen would use a stock photo for a cover. This is the image that made NASA realize something was wrong with the Hubble space telescope.
On the one hand, Nancy’s plan to avoid the Chunnel delays got her to the coast successfully…

Apparently it was the other co-author’s job to remember to put clothes on the characters.
The lost Shakespeare stage direction: “Exit, pursued by seagulls.”
The soundtrack to this book is Yakety Sax.
I’m sure I saw this on the Benny Hill show when I was young. Though I may have been dreaming.
Actually, this type of nightmare is more common among SF fans than the typical “I dreamt I was back in high school and suddenly realized I was naked and everyone stared at me”.
“I dreamt I was on a Baen cover and suddenly I realized I was naked…”
Baen announced no further book-release events at the Sigma Nu fraternity house.
“Refreshingly different…” Well, except for the “nude female being threatened by nefarious unidentified figures” cover theme…
‘Ms. Johansson, you’re needed on the set…’
