I don't even want to think about Australia’s view!Click for full image

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: I want a naked man, and he’s playing with these two blue balls. No, no, I’m saying he’s handling two massive globes. Don’t make ’em the same size, one is bigger than the other. Have him straining, concentrating intensely. Look, I don’t see what’s so funny about this.

Don't let looks deceive you... this chair is actually incredibly uncomfortable.Click for full image

Mirrie’s Art Direction: Sci-fi villians must be as campy as possible. Hmmm, maybe give him a chair made of antlers like Jareth from Labyrinth had, and have him wearing a gold suit. 70’s babe on the left of him, sinister chimp-surgeon to the right. And behind them all looms the Angel of Death, looking like if Peter Capaldi played Grandpa Rick.

Some may question it as an Olympic sport... but planet fork flower vase quill blood writing will catch on.Click for full image

Tat Wood Comments: Remember this? Well here’s how France saw it. Neither is entirely representative, this being a novel about an Australian sheep-shearer (in Space!) who buys Earth at a department store. Sort of. The sad thing is, Cordwainer Smith wrote extensively about cat-people but the artists never got the hint.

Monkey Comments: I actually don’t know the story, so i have no idea which of these covers is the most accurate. With Heinlein you can never tell.
