    I think the most sci-fi thing about this book is that someone was trying to cash in on ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ some four years before it was published!

    The Triple-Exoplanet

    “Well… that was quick…”
    “We are travelling at lightspeed… so with time dilation technically that actually took 50 years.”

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    @ SI – He also should mansplain special relativity length contraction to her.

    The picture is slow loading. The book title ‘Pleasure Planet’. In my head the Christmas Story narration voice of Jean Shepherd is telling me all the possible visual goodies to come. Vallejo? Sweet? An unknown artist doing a Where’s Waldo style picture of all the goings on on this Planet Of Pleasure? Sheep sheep sheep? Nope. A recycled Fabio romance cover would be a gazillion per cent better than this. May Sos the Rope strangle everyone responsible for Jean Shepherd’s bitter disappointment.

    “Let’s not lose our heads, at least keep our underwear on.”

  7. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @fred: Something is indeed amiss when a cover makes you wistful for the Baen house style!

    “His purple rocket penetrated deep into her quivering spacewarp”…

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The publisher has certainly hit on a can’t-lose formula.

    Basically, keep the underwear on and don’t look at each other.

  10. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bibliomancer—also known as “quantum shrinkage.”

  11. Anna T. Says:

    They look like they’re doing some sort of weird modern dance. That, or shooting a bad, bad sex scene. Titillating, this isn’t.

  12. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: ‘Keep the underwear on and don’t look at each other’ sounds like the dating scene in my last year at public school. My first year at university was ‘Wild Men and Wormholes’, in more ways than one!

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The two things that strike me about the cover are:

    1. I feel as though his ear is staring at me.

    2. ‘Welcome to the Hot Side’ makes a better slogan for a place to eat than a book to read.

    Though if you rearrange the letters, you get:

    WELCOME TO THE HOISTED
    CHEWED TO THE TOILSOME
    THEISM TO THE LOCOWEED
    CLEWED TO THE SMOOTHIE
    COWHIDE TO THE OMELETS
    MELODIC TO THE TOWHEES
    CITED TO THE WHOLESOME
    COWED TO THE LITHESOME
    CHEWIEST TO THE LOOMED
    ESCHEW TO THE DOLOMITE
    WHELMED TO THE COOTIES
    WHEEDLE TO THE OSMOTIC

    I just can’t stop turning sci-fi books into sexy classics now!

    The Sex my Destination
    I-Sex Robot
    Do Androids dream of electric sex?
    The Stainless steel…..RIGHT… I need a cold shower or something!

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @SI: 2069–The Year We Reach Orgasm is a real title.

    So I’ve heard.

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Dead StuffWBT—I doubt one could improve upon “Cowhide to the Omelets.” 😉

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @SI—
    Lord of the G-Strings
    Poon (Frank Herbert’s classic)
    1984-Play
    Fahrenheit 451 in My Shorts

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Also, ‘Evangeline Anderson’ is an anagram for ‘No Angel, Envies A Nerd.’

  19. Bibliomancer Says:

    @SI, @B. Chiclitz

    Stranger in a Strange Hand
    A Cockwork Orange
    The Sheep Hook Up
    Rendezvous with Yo Mama

  20. Perry Armstrong Says:

    @B.Chiclitz (9): strangely, “keep the underwear on and don’t look at each other” sorta works for one of my submissions that has yet to be posted!

  25. Innocent Bystander Says:

    Yep. Nothing says hot sex more than doing it up against the wall in your space obsessed 10 year old son’s bedroom.
