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: 7.71 out of 10)

    “Woman! You’re not fit to hug my waist! Try my ankle and maybe I’ll let you work your way up (a little bit).”

    I expect that, for once, the cover is a pretty good representation of the book.

    What you can’t see is the pile of chicken drumsticks behind the throne, each with a single bite taken out of them.

    No one puts the Science into Science Fiction like John Norman. If it weren’t for the Science of gravity this cover would be 1000% better, but John Norman cares about Science and the way it is depicted on his book covers.

    It’s this guy, in his younger days.

    Before Netflix and chill.
    At first glance, I thought the dancer had a dramatic, upswept dragon hairdo.
    I like the catty look on the woman in red.

    Ed Miliband wonders why he was invited on Dom DeLuise’s stag night – and where everyone else got to.

  7. Anna T. Says:

    The blurb in the lower left corner says the guy who wrote this book also wrote the Gor series. I can’t say I’m surprised.

    I imagine the girl in red (and by extension the model they used) making some snotty comment under her breath about the lameness of this whole scenario.

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    Which one of these people is the The Captain? I see The Diva, The DoucheBag (on the beanbag), The Hater, The Glutton. That only leaves the woman on the floor with the really big big-toe on her left foot.

    I imaging the woman in red thinking: ‘Oh, Sherry just HAD to do the “sacred” dance of Ishtar so she could flash her butt in that outfit.’

    Everyone looks bored, even the king.

    I think the woman in red speaks for all of us.

    The title font is… uh… indescribable.

    The blurb down right contains way too many “of”.

    @JuanPaul: I’m guessing beanbag douchebag is The Captain. Captain Douchebag.

    Artwork by Vallejo the Lesser.

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Ah, Mr. Norman! We meet again…
    [Cracks knuckles, stretches neck, draws deep breath]

    My only objection to this cover is that it’s completely unnecessary. When I go to the bathroom, I need to reach the paper without having to rip off a piece of colorful wrapping first.

    @GSS ex-noob. She rolls her eyes for all of us, you mean?
