Good Show Sir Comments:

There once was a damsel named Janet
Who came from a world called Big Planet
The gravity well
Caused her boobies to swell
But the Space Sheep is here so don’t ban it

Published 1978

Thanks to Kathy C. for sending this in.

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: 8.33 out of 10)

    On a big planet dreams stay with you
    like a lovers jugs on a high cliffside

    Yeah, that really narrows it down…

  3. Bibliomancer Says:

    Under the extra gravity of that big planet I am impressed with her support.

    Of that 100 pound necklace.

  4. Francis Boyle Says:

    I read the title as ‘Pig Blanket’ which makes more sense than anything here.

  5. Raoul Says:

    Impressive knockers, by Jove!

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Ok, now that we’ve knocked off this clown and stuck him in the jug, it’s our turn to stand atop the mesa looking all enigmatic and mystical. Except for the boob flash of course, that’s pretty straightforward.”

    @GSS admin—very, very nice limerick 😉

    You know, I had no idea that the Ancient Greeks had off-world colonies.

  9. StevenLP Says:

    This isn’t a cheaply produced paperback with cynical hackwork cover (“just make sure there’s breasts”), this is the limited edition Underwood-Miller hardback of Jack Vance’s novel, intended to be a respectful reprint of his work for the collector …

    Mr. xn, who likes dumplings even more than the next man, looked at this and said “Proportions are off.”

    Yep, this art is so bad it distracted him from nekkid boobage.

    He’s right. Girl on the right has such tiny feet it’s a wonder she doesn’t fall over. She also appears to have a bad case of scoliosis.

    Mr. xn and I also both think Janet’s standing on a coffin. WTF?

    That’s not really a jug, more of an urn. What’s a Grecian urn? A trip to a Jovian moon and a chance to show her knockers.

    I’d have guessed the book to be 10 years older, judging by the title font. The combo of the font and bazooms makes me hear bow-chicka-wow-wow music.

    On a strictly astronomical basis, I’m doubtful that the world they’re standing on would have such a livable climate and atmosphere, being that close to a Jovian with so many satellites.

    Lower right foliage shows Dennis Moore was there (dum dum dum).

    Is the artist signing his name in Morse code?

    @Anna: with that neckline and jewelry, I think she’s Cretan.

    @BC: heh.

    @GSS: excellent limerick!

    Schoolhouse Rock’s “Interplanet Janet” was… surprisingly endowed for a hybrid humanoid/spacecraft, but hers were covered.

  11. Ray P Says:

    Not big enough for the author’s name.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: whoever approved that cover art certainly is a something that spells like Cretan.

  13. Innocent Bystander Says:

    One of Melania’s more tasteful modeling gigs.

  14. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Big Planet…where everyone is Celine Dionne.

  15. Anna T. Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: Yeah, woman in yellow is probably Cretan. In which case her friend is still probably Greek, since she’s not showing off her breasts. They didn’t really do that on the mainland in those days (I think).

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Thank you for spotting the set-up.

    @Innocent: There really is a resemblance, isn’t there?

    @Anna: I think so too. Still doesn’t explain what Cretan Melania’s standing on. Coffin? Suitcase?

    @Ray: The art was so WTF I didn’t even notice!

    This book has certainly had a wide variety of covers.

    This looks remarkably like those pre-war posters for Kew Gardens on the London Underground. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-41552276 https://www.pinterest.co.uk/Bryonyrogers/kew-gardens-poster-research/

    But, you know, bustier. And on another planet.
