It’s a Two-fer Tuesday: Dominic Flandry Showcase

Good Show sir Comments:

1. Poul Anderson pulls a George R.R. Martin; kills off Flandry in a first chapter surprise!

2. Signet decides that putting Flandry’s face or name on the cover does not sell books.

Thanks to Charles for sending one in.

Published 1975, 1987

We’ve got submitted Spock covers coming out our pointy ears so it’s a good time to toss them all together into a Mr. Spock Megapost! Credit where credit is due but there are some unknown artists and publishers in this mix.

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. Yes we are both threatened by the giant ants. Why do you persist in yelling Me Too?

2. I wish to be now known as Father Spock.

3. “Airing … grievances … lot of problems … you people … gonna hear it …”

4. Next time let’s not get our publicity shots posing in the Sears Portrait Studio.

5. Sorry. I don’t know what happened. I’ve never lost my Vulcan Death Grip before.

Jonathan Art Direction: The Styx? OK, we need a boat. Give the boat eyes. No, give it two sets of eyes. And some empty eye sockets. And bat wings and a frog. And a hand coming out of a skull holding a rubber spider. Oh, don’t forget the boatman needs to have the author’s face.
