Lee Moyer, artist, designer and illustrator, has created a gallery of sci-fi cover recreations on his website.

We first heard about this pastime from our lovely and talented GSS ex-noob in a comment back on “The Light of Lilith”:

My people of GSS:

At a convention this past weekend, I went to a slideshow of bad SF/F covers. Most of them have been seen here. Then we re-enacted a few.

I am pleased to report that upon being shown our old pal ISTBE fractal centaur, the Artist Guest of Honor literally shrieked and recoiled, taking a step away from the picture. Quite literally taken aback and repelled.

In the reenactment, I played one of the bored background lizard women in
http://www.goodshowsir.co.uk/?p=12947 (with my regular clothes on!) whilst the octopus was two people covered in jackets and hoodies.

http://www.goodshowsir.co.uk/?p=12956 could not be re-enacted as the hero could not actually support the damsel in that position with one arm, being a mere mortal.

————————————————————————

Since this teaser we have been able to access these lovely/terrible cover recreations as well as many others over on Lee Moyer’s site. I’ll let GSS ex-noob tell the tale:

1. We started off small — here’s me as the dead body (I’m not actually bald…)

2. Then myself and my athletic pal posed for the bored background women, while rather a lot of people were the octopus.

Filling out the gallery are a number of well-done recreations of many of our favourite covers. Maybe if we all ask really nice Mr. Moyer can reenact I Sing the Body Electric someday!

Good Show Sir Comments: Cover art, suitable for framing, from the artist’s website.
From his biography:
Peter died much too soon but at least he was sitting in a bar with a drink in front of him. There are worse ways to go. At his funeral the vicar said he was probably “getting in the rounds” in heaven. I like to think he’s painting there too … He was intelligent and widely read and a regular member of his local pub’s quiz and cricket teams, though he would say that was mainly for the beer! He died in March 1998 in Skegness while he and some colleagues were working on a mural at Butlins, relaxing in the hotel bar after work.

That’s right! Dr. J. R. Asimov’s latest, and sexiest, installment into the Fantasy lands of Good Show Sir! Need more convincing?!? I would bloody hope not, but here’s an excerpt!

Glistening balls of sweat and water rolled down the orange coloured fur of Timanus the man tiger, as he stepped out of a steamy shower. His stripes sparkled in the light, his muscles rippled with power, his tail wagged seductively and his large dong waved around near his knees. Tiffany deLarge Cleavage also stepped out of the shower, her rack impressive and discussed throughout many lands.

“Is this for me?” Tiffany deLarge Cleavage seductively said as she lent over Timanus and grabbed a glass of water.

“Actually that was m….”

Before he could finish Tiffany deLarge Cleavage grabbed Timanus the man tiger back into the shower where they made, once again, hot passionate intercourse.

Unannounced to the sexy couple, Gilbert W. Izard watched through a magical perv hole in the wall. “You’ve gone too far this time,” he paused dramatically, “old friend!”

“MU HA HAHAHHAHAA HAH HA AH AHH AHH AHAH AHAHAHAH,” he laughed, “MU AHAHA AHHHHHH HA HA HA HA HA HAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH HA!”
