More Cocker's Mad Gods and EnglishmenClick for larger image

Verylatetotheparty Comments: More Moorcock. The next book in the series after “The Jewel In The Skull” and a similar GSS suitable standard of cover art. The cover of the third book is disappointingly not nearly as bad. Published in 1975, it might also qualify as an early example of Orange and Teal, (although it’s come out more pinkish in the photo).

Quoth the raven: 'Never Moor ... cock!'Click for larger image

Verylatetotheparty Comments: I bought several “Mayflower Moorcocks” at my Oxfam shop a few years back and some of the covers have already been on GSS, but I don’t think you have this one yet and I really think it belongs here. The colours sort of look faded but I think it was that bad originally. Apart from that I will let it speak for itself.

It’s a Two-fer Tuesday – Virgin Planet special!

Good Show Sir Comments:

#1 It says “Cover design Lester, Larkin & Divers” on back cover. Took a three-man team to design an arse cover.

#2 OK lady but if you’ve never seen a man you’re setting your expectations up a little high.

Calm down Faux-nan. Don't get your knickers in a twist.Click for larger image

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.

John C Comments: Look, you wanted me to modernise the planet so I went to IKEA and got one of their “Flty” anti-gravity beds. It’s not my fault half the bits are missing and the instructions don’t make sense.
