Thank you for making me climb this hill, just to see the next hill we have to climb. Idiot.Click for full image

Every man, or lord of the lands, needs a hairy companion. And what would they do together I hear your mind ask. Well they would go hill walking, dress in lovely princely clothes and watch the sun set together over the lands of… America? Wait… what?

Happy New Year!

So, just wanted to do a little sum up of a few of the best covers we have posted and some personal favourites of the Good Show Sir staff. Just kidding, we don’t have staff, more like some sort of trained animal that has been taught how to sit correctly and not bite the children.

First, just a couple of thanks. To Justin Leego who faithfully does all the tags for the covers, finds out who the artist is and corrects any spelling/grammer errors I make about six hours after I post it. And to CSA, who endured an entire afternoon with me searching through the shelves of three second hand book shops over Christmas. We have quite the collection of covers to add to the site!

And thanks again to those who visit us here. We love to hear from anyone who comes along, so feel free to comment and you will be welcomed with sarcastic undertones!

One of our favourite covers:

Man I am so wasted right now... there is no rope.Click for orginal post

Another favourite:

God damn it, that T-Rex has got him another knight!Click for orginal post

Personal Favourite:

Stop playing with fireworks Tim and bloody shoot someone!Click for orginal post

Most under-rated cover, as voted for by CSA:

Blad women acceptable. And I can stand a man with four arms. But green fur!? Take this deamon! ah HA!Click for orginal post

Shit, I forgot my arrow.Click for full image

Hello there sir, could I stop you for a quick survey today? Excellent. Imagine that we gave you a cover that included terrible fonts, a man with a very chiseled chin in some sort of armour, holding his short bow. Then pump tons of strange glows and lens flare on places you’d not expect. On scale of one to ten, how likely are you going to take this on a bus with you? Sir? Come back! Sir?

I told you this was a great idea, we both look way more awesome up here.Click for full image

Two fine gentlemen sir! Both of them wearing only the finest apparel that royalty can buy. On top of the highest castle tower pointing into the distance in ponderous thought. Leaving the viewer with a single thought, ‘Health and safety ain’t great in this castle.’

If that dam bird touches my thumb again... I swear...Click for full image

Science fiction is mainly read by what gender? Males! Exactly! So therefore we should have a big hunk of a long haired lumberjack man, topless, showing off his muscles and tugging on his rope. Don’t forget to add a bird in there! If ya know what I mean, nod nod wink wink!

Thanks so much to Chris R!

Shifting between worlds to get a hooker! ohhhh Yeaaa..God I love my powersClick for full image

Some artists define a generation: Picasso, Michelangelo, Paul Klee… I want you to be inspired by their works and create something for me. Think of these things: hookers, cats, bats, stereotype vampires, a real man with long cheesy hair holding his long sword. And to make it art, we place them all…. between worlds! Together, my friend, we will define the next generation!

My god... You're loincloth hides nothing... just kill me already...Click for full image

A huge hunky man with bulging muscles and a loincloth that just about covers his ass with a sword symbolically hanging down from it. Oh and have him holding a huge spear with his taught sweaty arms.Wait – better make this a little less fabulous – add in a dragon that he might be about to kill… or seduce….

Thanks to CSA!

Wait... wait say that again. How much oxygen do we have.. and how long to dragons live?
Click for full river of lava!

Art direction: A huge lake of lava flowing down from a pointed ice mountain, and a dragon chasing some guys encased in a magic crystal of ice as they meander down the lava. Wait… there’s something missing isn’t there… Got it! Have a white ice eagle chase them too. But is it their companion or tormentor?

Thanks to Stu!

 purple prince stabbing at some green guy, oh and make sure there is someone with at least four arms

Art direction: The question is, what shouldn’t we have on the cover? Have a purple prince stabbing at a furry green wolfman with a couple of guys watching in the background.. one of them has to have four arms.
