Texas was an all man state... till those darn girls all arrived!Click for full image

Simon W Comments: The blurb says “The women had taken over by 1998!” and, “Read the results in Richard Wilson’s unique, tongue-in-cheek, highly risible novel. It’s science fiction with a Woody Allen twist!”

I, the machine... stores all data to tape! Give me 30 minutes while I search for the right piece of information.Click for full image

Scott B Comments: You know, I never thought that when the machines finally rose and conquered humanity they would be led by a cyborg cordless electric razor.

Most aliens just don't appreciate a space suit with shoulder pads!Click for very slightly larger image

Sara Comments: It seems that this spaceman has crashed his (surprisingly intact) Z7F rocket on the planet of Floaty Corkscrew Mountain. I have to love his facial expression as he just stands there with his eyes squeezed shut and his feet planted, like he’s bracing himself for take three of, “the bit where I gettentacle-slapped by the angry insectoid-octopus-dragon.”

... I can put on a cover!Click for full image

Scott B’s Art Direction: For this cover I want a fantastical pink-purple-green eight-armed lobster-snake thing. But to bring it down to Earth I want you to paste in photographs of four human eyes. Because that won’t be incredibly creepy or anything.

You don't have to be so snooty about killing me!Click for full image

Amy Comments: I will admit, I have not read these stories, so the cover may make a lot of sense if one has, but I haven’t so what the hell, anyway? We’ve got a mouse/rabbit/robocop creature of blue blood, who is apparently either surrendering to the beplumed armored dude stabbing him/her in the gut. That, or they’re about to kiss, I can’t tell. And is that supposed to be a maple leaf on his shield, because if it is, I think that tree is growing too close to Chernobyl.
