It's a 1984 reference! Groovy!Click for full image

Good Show Sir Art Direction: This cover has to be at the printers in 15 minutes. Just cut some pop stars out of Melody Maker and paint over the collage. And add a rocket — it’s supposed to be “science fiction”. Next time don’t smoke angel dust before you come to work.

Published 1971

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!

Stop calling me Albert. My name is Der Maverik!Click for full image

Good Show Sir Comments: From a review: “The front cover is rather interesting, as it depicts Albert Einstein, General Ike Eisenhower, and former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini together. Unlike the past two book covers, this cover actually depicts a scene that happens in the book — without the jet, however.”

Published 1996

No... I'm sure it's spelt Jospeph... right? Click for slightly larger image

Rachel and Thomas Comment: There are fourteen of these now. Apparently, the reading public cannot get enough of these magnificent hissing catmen and their high-cut thonged armoured leotards festooned with Rob Liefeld pouches. And who can blame us?

YES! That t-rex IS holding a laser gun!Click for full image

Kristen Comments: Sorry about the poor quality of the shot…in any case, it looks like the designer decided to throw something from EVERY short story in this collection onto the cover. At least I hope so, because if there were also armed dinosaurs, fighter jets, and authors working on home computers on board the Titanic, history books have been holding out on us.

Wow!
Many thanks to Kristen!

God, I hate these Lost story lines...Click for full image

Art Direction: We need something that really gets across the feeling of time travel. So, in other words I mean a naked gladiator takes on a Boeing 737. And by naked I just having him at some strange angle so we can’t see his bum crack or giblets. I know, I’m no fun.

At least these invading alien robots had the decency to make themselves look humanoid!Click for full image

Nix comments: This has an annoyingly shiny cover, so it may be hard to read its contents. It’s an anthology of four famous SF works: _2001_, _The Demolished Man_, _The Day of the Triffids_, and _I, Robot_. As you know, all of these contained city-sized giant mecha and huge explosions (although only two had the giant mecha dive-bombed by rocketships), so the cover is quite appropriate, and obviously is a fine piece of artwork: tasteful, yet subtle. I’m only sending it in because it’s so annoyingly shiny.

Many thanks to Nix!

GAH the title is exploding from my stomach!Click for full image

There comes a time in a person’s life when they see something so beautiful that it brings tears to their eyes. Space ships, laser rifles, power backpacks,France being destroyed and of course, the mighty lizardman with a mohawk. People will cry my friend, people will cry for hours.

Thanks to CSA!

(I’m off for the next couple of days so no more updates till next week. Enjoy!)
