sWe're going streaking!!!! We're going up the quad and to the planet walking space fortress!Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Billy Awesome Comments: Says on the back here that “The diadem that crowned the head of Aleytys was in contact with her central nervous system – and invisible to outsiders.”  I don’t know what a diadem is, so make her whole outfit invisible, just to be safe.
Published 1981

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 6.92 out of 10)

    Princess Leia’s first plan to defeat the Death Star proved futile.

    @Perry Armstrong. Best comment! I’m afraid it’s going to be all downhill from here…

    “Come back with my wardrobe!”

    This would have been a much better cover for yesterday’s Pleasure Planet

  5. SI Says:

    What started as a fun afternoon of streaking turned into horror as the robot was equipped with nudity sensors.

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    You think this is in bad taste? The first version of the picture included the birthing stirrups!

    Things seem to have gotten lost translating this one into German…

    …but others in the series are very Diadem worthy.,204,203,200_.jpg

    I’ve seen ‘2001’ too often to see a ship like that without hearing ‘The Blue Danube’.

    Which rather kills the mood.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I thought at first she was squatting on a rock, but now I think it may be some sort of living creature. The confusion is probably due to my eyes wanting to close of their own accord when I glance at this cover. It is quite painful to look at. Less funny than just plumb ugly, on several levels.

    This brings to mind the stereotype of witches doing nude nature dances.
    Except she looks more like she’s trying to poop. There, it’s been said.

    And that having been said, it does make you wonder if the people aboard that spaceship did indeed make off with her clothes. It might explain why she’s maybe trying to use magic to force it down.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @BC: Perhaps someone replaced Super Mario with a nude woman?

  12. anon Says:

    @Tat Wood: Blue, Da Nude
    @Anna T.: You shall not suffer a witch to poop dance.

    All will be forgiven the day we see a cover to THE MARTIAN with Matt Damon offering his buttocks to the readers.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AR: shush! Or Hollywood will hear you!

  15. Ray P Says:

    Does some sort of sf art genre exist of humans riding around on the backs (or pointy heads) of aliens?

  16. Michael Toland Says:

    I’m with B. Chiclitz. I wanna know what that thing she’s standing on is. Is it alive? If so, is it thinking that today is its lucky day?

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Michael Toland—well, it might be a lucky day, except for that poop issue.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Michael: Lucky? Imagine an organism with an entirely different body plan and reproductive system than yours, but with half your body weight, perched on your cranium.

  19. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @DSWBT—but if we follow the universal rule that all aliens can be taught to speak English with minimal difficulty (as in the 1960 TIME MACHINE film where Rod Taylor simply has to scratch “w-e-e-n-a” in the ground and Yvette Mimieux learns how to read!), might it not follow that any alien, now matter how exotic its body plan or gender taxonomy, would feel lucky if a naked human babe were perched on its head?

    Having failed to fend off anagram competition, I’ve decided to move on and try palindromes.


  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I’m wondering if ‘diadem’ isn’t an archaism for ‘twerk’.

  24. Hammy Says:

    All I can think of when I look at this cover is a line from the 1966 Woody Allen movie “What’s Up, Tiger Lily?” –

    “Hey, you’ve got my vibrator!”

  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I like the way Space Sheep appears to be swooping in from the left to cover her dumplings. As if rocket-powered, or at least leaving a contrail. It’s actually a nice effect. “Swoosh! Space Sheep to the rescue!”
