Yes!! May is so full of UK Bank Holidays which means only one thing… which the world eagerly awaits… a special Good Show Sir post!

Today I bring you a French Mega Post! Sent in by the wonderful Cedric *coughs* two years ago… So I am just posting them now. Maybe it has something to do with me currently visiting Paris with le wonderful Tag Wizard. So watch out, French bookshops! We’ll be looking for more!

Enjoy the post and to those in the UK that get a long weekend, I hope you enjoy it!

Fly around like that... you're going to get crazy locals checking you out!Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Cedric Comments: The blue bird with rainbow wings and of course bare breasts (the marketing dept. strikes again) is already wonderful but what takes this cover to a higher level is the man at the bottom left, staring at the bird with a WTF look on his face. Beautiful.

Cedric Comments: I can’t help but think the tiger and his friend the very stern bear keep bitching about their colleagues in the back, the hippo and his friend the fox (hyena? other strange mammal?).
Published 1983, available in English as “The Battle of Forever”

Nope... I really preferred when the giant gorilla attacked it... lets get it back in place!Click for full image

DPN Comments: Finding a bad Baen cover is like shooting fish in a barrel, while standing on a pile of corpses as the city explodes behind you, illuminating your massive pecs.

David A Comments: I assume after losing 80% of their population over the past 100 years, tigers are finally going to get even with the human race… with the help of a sexy female sidekick, naturally.

Jon Comments: I know those Moorcock/Mayflower covers are like shooting fish in a barrel, but I needed something to go with my chips. I actually got the man himself to sign my copy recently and I told him I felt the film version was underrated. He agreed with me, with the minor change of “under” to “over”. Seemed a nice bloke, though.

Turns out this book might be apocalyptic Christian literature by E G White.
We appologise, but the cover is still pretty epic!

Lauren Comments: The colors on this are just so awful. And spike heels? But at least she’s not in a fur bikini. Although he appears to be having some wardrobe malfunction with his shirt.

At least he doesn’t have a mullet!
