AdamK Comments: The notes on the back cover provide a stark warning that THIS vision of man’s mental bondage could have already begun!
Published 1978

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!

    Regardless of the cover artwork, the title alone makes this god-show-sir-worthy.

    GOOD-show-sir-worthy. (I was was so desperate to be the first commenter that I hit SUBMIT without reading what I’d written.)

    At least he didn’t shave his chest for this cover.

    i can just see the, “Beware of large scary Man-Dog” sign in my head.

    “Walkies! No, I insist!”

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    There’s a couple of gobsmacked dogs in the background. “He’s not serious, is he?” “I…I really think he is…”

    Also…”Camp Concentration”? That is in the very poorest of taste, sir!

    I’m pretty sure I know how this ends. The intrepid spaceman discovers that this bizarre planet of dog people was really Earth all along!!!!

  8. Matt Says:

    Unsurprisingly, the novel doesn’t feature dogmen at all.

    “You maniacs! You chewed it up and whizzed on it! Bad dogs! BAD DOGS!!!”

    Puppies of Terra? Wasn’t that an early Russ Meyer movie?

    So, what is it that SF editors do? I mean — this cover begs the question, doesn’t it? What, precisely, do SF editors do?

    Man, furries are everywhere, aren’t they?

    I couldn’t help but look this one up – I found a plot summary here –

    And another plot summary with an alternate cover, that’s actually worse than this one, here –

    If these be the puppies of Terra…then I fear Terra’s DOGS.

  14. Kathleen Says:

    that…does not look like a puppy

  16. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Of course you’re going to see dogs in chains here. Just look at who the publisher is. None other than Panther Science Fiction!

  17. Eoin Says:

    other posters have hit in the same thing – what is worse the title or the cover? – looks worse that the ads for my favorite gay bay, jjs

    “…and my chain.”
