Chuffmunky’s Art Direction: “Ok there’s NO budget for the cover this time. Go through that pile of dusty CDs; there should be some forgotten illustrators’ portfolios from the 90’s we can raid.”

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!

Tat Wood Comments: Amazingly, this is about the most tasteful cover for this I’ve seen. The original hardback had a 90% return rate, which makes sense when you see what they put on it.

So... Can't help but notice you don't seem happy with my redesign of your space ship...Click for full image

Nanoalchemist Comments: The first 49 shades of grey apparently involved space furries. And giant furry based robots. And a bubble helmet, so you know it’s in space.

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!
