Le requin Fonzie!Click for full image

Bruno’s Art Direction:
Setting – barren Mars landscape, red clouds.
Foreground – grinning shark in regal purple robes.
Background – Minotaur-ish creature with spear hauling vaguely human shape.
Perfect!

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Nightmare… Blue… well we can put some blue on the cover. But how do we get across… nightmare? I say that like I don’t already know the answer. Two words, cat person… with a light bulb syringe.

Cat people boobs... really Baen... Really??Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Tom Noir Comments: Naked cybernetic armed cat woman in an improbable pose bursting through a cover of shiny 3D fonts? This is what happens when cover designers play Bingo. This cover is SO shiny that the camera couldn’t quite deal with it. Pretty much everything that looks black is actually highly-reflective chrome.

Colette’s Art Direction: We need to convey a Utopian future, so nothing represents that better than a pastel circuit-board Lego city with buildings encased in test tubes. Add a happy gorilla-headed torso man carrying a life-like unitard-wearing sex doll. Ooh, and lasers! And… and shoulder pads!
