1960! Only 95% sexist!Click for full image

Frank Comments: Now here we have an example of how to punch up a work by giving it a new title and new cover art. The story is from 1950, and was previously published as “The House That Stood Still”.

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.

Scott B Comments: Judging by the back cover blurb this one surprisingly is a faithful cover. Except it didn’t mention geodesic-head guy there. But the rest of it, including blue-glow-from-nose man, seems to be taken straight from the book. Still… wow.

David’s Art Direction: I was up late last night and I’m getting tired, just draw me an alien ostrich on E and a beautiful naked woman. … What do you mean that’s gratuitous? Oh alright, I need sleep, give her a bra then—BUT NO PANTIES!

Frank Comments: Good thing that fern was handy, else the publisher would have had to get really blatant with that maple leaf. All the electronic equipment out among the foliage is worrisome too. I’ve seen what happens when that sort of thing is left in a damp environment and it’s not good for continued operation.
