Stevie Comments: Robert Silverberg’s Recalled to Life has to be the classic tentacle-sex cover drama. Why is the guy naked and floating in a huge vat of octopus to begin with? Wow!
Published 1977

Many thanks to Stevie!

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: 7.84 out of 10)

    I dare you to run around in public while holding up that book cover and shouting to everyone who sees it: “YES!! I am a science-fiction fan, and proud of it! I read books like this one and I’m not ashamed, you hear?!”

    You need a new tag: tentacles.

    I have heard it said that Robert Silverberg is a talented writer with a remarkable ability to craft captivating prose. And then I see this cover!

    Starpilot Brick Lawson was about to regret that he had been… RECALLED TO LIFE!

    The pink! The yellowish-green! The pink! The horror!

    Actually, if you look closer the author’s name is First Paperback Publication (has to be a pen name), and the title of the novel is ROBERT SILVERBERG RECALLED TO LIFE.

    Quite apart from the disturbingly pink skin, one hopes this process will cure the poor chap of his spindly little legs and RIDICULOUSLY long arms

    More tentacle porn!

  12. Zycrow Says:

    The title is incorrect; this is actually a sequel an Ayn Rand novel and is called, in some countries, “Atlas Raped”

    Although to be honest I can’t tell who is doing the raping in this image
