Badger Books are the bomb! Stinkbomb. We’ve gotten a number of Badger covers over the years, most of which have sat unused (mainly because Tag Wizard couldn’t meet the high bar we set for alt-text humour). So we figured if we piled enough Badger Books into one heap they would reach critical mass and burst into flames, solving our problem.

So let’s have a go at our first Badger Books Megapost. Today’s theme is

Damsels in Distress,

or, Badger those Babes!

or, BEHIND YOU! RUN!

She'd run faster but her skirt won't allow itThe Girl From Tomorrow

Hey that's the number plate of my car!U.F.O. 517

I've got more pulsating cells to show youNight of the Black Horror

I hate these new dance club spotlightsMind Force

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. “I come from the future to … rock your world!”

2. Whence did they come? Thence must we run! Hence.

3. “Get away from me, Nerd!”

4. This is where you’d expect to find Bow-tie Man!

Thanks to Marvin and Roger T. for sending these bad boys in.

It’s time for Mars Sexytime Honourable Mentions. And it’s a score in more ways than one. Scraping the bottom of the Mars barrel, here are three also-rans that, for various reasons, didn’t meet our STRICT AND RIGIDLY ENFORCED GROUND RULES.

Sex Life on the Planet Mars. I can’t find much info on whether this is comedy, sci-fi or maybe even a mystery. But I’m not surprised it’s written by this guy. Somewhere Capt Kirk is getting a boner.

A Princess of Mars. Further proof of the benefits of novels losing their copyright and entering the public domain. This is an actual by-the-rules science fiction book cover, but it’s print-on-demand and I didn’t feel like spending a tenner of Tag Wizard’s expense account money to buy a copy.

Mars Ho! It’s a Kindle ebook cover. I think it’s also paperback but, since nobody is in a hurry to send that cover in, this will just have to do.
