One day, Jones, my collection of historical space postcards would be completeClick for full UNSHEEPED image

Lauren F Comments: Two covers for the price of one! But you’ll spend all your time trying to figure out the front cover so they may as well have left the back cover blank.
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! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.89 out of 10)

    New from Parker Brothers! Fun for all the family! “You’ve chained my lady!” Only 20.99!

  3. Phil Says:

    The title must surely be a euphemism for something…

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Hull breach! We’re losing breathable air! WE’VE LOST THE BLOODY TAROT CARDS!’

    Oh my this is a mess. Busy busy, and none of it very attractively done. And the summary on the back is going to make me want to overlook the cover.. oh wait. No it’s not.

    The mistress of Space is enslaved! Well, Space warned her what would happen if his wife ever found out about them.

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    But if it’s “untold humiliation” won’t it be a fairly thin book?

  8. FëaröfMůsic Says:

    By the way, Avon, Baen called. They’d like their cover back. Immediately if not sooner.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Er, shouldn’t that be “daughter of Flintstone, the caveman”? And shouldn’t she be bringing peanuts to the people of cluster?

  10. David Cowie Says:

    Piers Anthony? BDSM? What can possibly go wrong?

  11. fred Says:

    Looks like a lost episode of LEXX.
    Is that big red thing on the front cover a cape or a plant?

  12. Jane Says:

    So what do they call it when the people of Cluster massively screw up?

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Jane 12—they call it “The Second Novel in the Cluster Trilogy.”

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The third and final volume will, of course, be called “Cluster’s Last Stand.”

  15. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Hey, E.L. James and Piers Anthony should write a book together:

    FIFTY CHAINS OF XANTH.

  16. Lionrock Says:

    Is the kneeling nude woman holding a jug or a cuttlefish?

  17. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Piers Anthony’s
    EMBARRASSING THE LADY, THE GENT AND PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE IN THE VICINITY OF THIS COVER

  18. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    “But first she must endure untold humiliation…” – so this untold humiliation seems to entail watering the plants whilst naked, and enduring caped bug-men trying to tickle your behind…Oh the horror!

  19. Tom Noir Says:

    Glad to see that in the distant, spacefaring future polaroids make a comeback!

  20. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tom: that’s the world’s largest laser printer they’re exploring.

    TEN CENTURIES AFTER THE WAR OF ENERGY SAVER MODE, KONICA OF MINOLTA–DAUGHTER OF FUJITSU THE CANON–ASSUMES THE FORM OF RED, GREEN AND BLUE, TO BRING VICTORY TO THE PEOPLE OF COMPAQ AGAINST THE APPLE SPACEFLEET. BUT FIRST SHE MUST ENDURE ENDLESS PRINTER-HEAD CLEANING…

  21. anon Says:

    Insects in the bacon tree were becoming a problem.

  22. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Not meaning to nitpick here — we never stoop to that — but technically speaking, what does “mistress” of “Space” mean really?
    Is there a “Lover of Space” as well?
    And a “We’re Just Friends of Space”…?

  23. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @AR: SPACE: THE FINAL FRIENDZONE.
