Happy New Year!

So, just wanted to do a little sum up of a few of the best covers we have posted and some personal favourites of the Good Show Sir staff. Just kidding, we don’t have staff, more like some sort of trained animal that has been taught how to sit correctly and not bite the children.

First, just a couple of thanks. To Justin Leego who faithfully does all the tags for the covers, finds out who the artist is and corrects any spelling/grammer errors I make about six hours after I post it. And to CSA, who endured an entire afternoon with me searching through the shelves of three second hand book shops over Christmas. We have quite the collection of covers to add to the site!

And thanks again to those who visit us here. We love to hear from anyone who comes along, so feel free to comment and you will be welcomed with sarcastic undertones!

One of our favourite covers:

Man I am so wasted right now... there is no rope.Click for orginal post

Another favourite:

God damn it, that T-Rex has got him another knight!Click for orginal post

Personal Favourite:

Stop playing with fireworks Tim and bloody shoot someone!Click for orginal post

Most under-rated cover, as voted for by CSA:

Blad women acceptable. And I can stand a man with four arms. But green fur!? Take this deamon! ah HA!Click for orginal post

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: 8.70 out of 10)

He's a faithful lute player, even though all he knows is Stairway to Heaven.Click for full image

And it thus cameto passthat the Mighty Lord Weber created the one thing which could instantly bring tears to the eyes of mortal men. Together around the campfire elves sat covered in blankets, drinking mead, talking to their wenches andwieldeda singlelute. But most importantly and what would soon become legend,they hadridiculous ears.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Day!

Hello all!

It’s getting to that time of year were peace and love fills the hearts of many and an empty hole of pain fills our bank accounts. Also, it is time for us here at Good Show Sir to take a little break over the Christmas period. We will be back, in force, after the new year with a collection of covers that will make you laugh and your eyes bleed.

I do suggest you cast your family and friends to one side both on Christmas day and New Years day to check out the site. We will have a ‘special’ post on both!

Thanks to everyone who visits the site and comments! And if you do have any covers we would love you to send them to us so we can add them to the collection.

We hope you all have a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday!

– Good Show Sir

I have to admit I really loved this show growing up. Sci-fi mixed with complex morals. Wouldn’t be caught dead reading this in public though!

Thanks to Adam Roberts who comments:

I know nothing about this book. But I do know that’s not the way to ride a spider. In fact, I’d say that’s a Kid’s Spider, when the knight is clearly a Grown-Up. He needs to get to the Raleigh Spider shop and trade up a size.

Thanks to CSA. This breaks every rule in the book! I have no idea why you sent me this, you rebel you. If there is one man who can teach us how to bring up children, it’s the Cosby.

What was that noise? Ah, probably just the wind.Click for full image

Really… winning? Green? With a gold photoshop glow? Really? Well best add an exploding space ship in there too. Oh and some babe in a space suit completely ignoring the explosion. Hopefully that will distract from our winning colour.

Leave this place, or I shall show you my genitals sir.Click for full image

Look, all I am saying is what good is a ‘warrior king’ unless he is the size of a building? A big building! If I was on a horse and in front of me was a massive magical warrior, glowing in the morning sun… Man, I’d run away back home and hide under my bed covers. That’s why we need this, we need it.

WHY! Why didn't I bring any arrows for my bow?!?Click for full image

Just have some muscled dudes on horses, pretty much looking exactly the same. Where we will shine, my good apprentice, is in the title and border. Our colour scheme will be brown and the links will be many. And we’ll have a horse or two leaping over the border giving the viewer a 3D experience! Uhhh well, some sort of experience.

Engineer!! My tank is fuming purple gas again!Click for full image

Out of the many things I have quoted which people love, I can guarantee there is nothing loved more on a cover than a good nazi! In a tank. With a huge purple nuclear explosion going off in the background. And the cover all shiny. Nothing more my friend. Nothing more.

Hmm. Why did I think sitting on the tail of this shuttle would be comfortable.Click for full image

Guy sits uncomfortably on the tail of a space shuttle. Don’t forget huge shiny text. And we’ll have to quote another one of her books, something that will really appeal to those hardcore Sci-Fi readers. Oh oh! I know. Dragons of Pern. Ace!

Bring that body to me muahahahahah, and some berries mmm MMM!Click for full image

So this is the cover I came up with, what do you think? Tim? Paul? Guys? Did you like the inclusion of the berries, the half skull, and subtle heart monitoring line? The large glowing atom in a circle on the dudes head? I’ll take your silence as a yes.

Thanks to CSA!

In someones head, this probably made sense.Click for full image

I’m speechless. I asked you for a mermaid, riding a merhorse on an ocean wave with a rainbow coming out of her back. But this… this is so much more. A picture like this should be kept in the Louvre.
