Axe o'clock again... man... time to head back upstairs...Click for full image

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Man climbing stairs to heaven, a grandfather clock with an axe for a pendulum. I think there is only one way I can improve this masterpiece… it has to shine… and I mean literally! Get the silver glossy shiny cover people on the phone, I’ve got another one for them to perfect!
Published 1992 (maybe)

Many thanks to Ethan for sending this in!

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!

Sara Comments: Here I am, just stepped out of my mecha-techno, time-traveling, chrome, orb-y…thing. The only drawback is that it destroys all clothes that are not right gloves or right boots. Swords are not clothes so they’re all right, too. Also it makes weird shadows stick to you. Wait, am I floating above a strange river?

Daniel Comments: Bought this gem in an second-hand bookshop last year. I was slightly embarrassed taking it up to the counter. It’s rubbish on a number of levels: it’s a literally awful bit of artwork; it’s artwork that bears pretty much no relation to the story; and said story is a sombre dystopian yarn by Christopher Priest, a renowned purveyor of genre-crossing, award-winning novels that have more recently been reprinted by Gollanz with classy covers.

Happy New Year!

And so the world has spun, strutted and wobbled its way around the sun yet again! We’ve come through ruff storms, predictions of the end of the world and a lot of superhero movies. This leaves us though with one eternal question, will anyone find a cover to top I Sing The Body Electric!?! It certainly doesn’t look like it! But who knows, who knows eh? I am sure the year ahead will be full of wondrous treasures!

Thanks to everyone for sending in all the covers we’ve posted over the year! And thanks to everyone who leaves a comment. Oh they do make me laugh! Ah ha ha ha ha… ha!

The top rated cover of the year:

She may of had three bottoms and lived in a severed foot. But she would never date something with a Mohawk!Click for original post

A personal favourite:

Back in my day it wasn't considered a night out unless you woke up half buried in a field surrounded by mangoes!Click for original post

CSA Chooses Lizard shield attack:

Ah John... you realise... you're not actually hitting the lizard!Click for original post

And finally, just for the double triple Ting!

Most men have horses... I have a... mmm... scaly chicken thing... yeah... WOOO!Click for original post
