Bibliomancer Comments: I picture this is how it went down: Artist: So what do you want on the cover? Editor: Its called “Invasion of the Robots” paint me a robot. Artist: What kind of robot? Editor: I don’t care, any frickin robot. Later. Artist: OK, here’s your frickin robot. Editor: You’re fired. Artist: I quit. Editor: Oh yeah, well I’m putting this on the book anyway. Artist: Put my name on this and I’ll sue you. Editor: Idiot, you forgot you initialed it!

John Comments: There isn’t a joke I could make that would trump the description on the back – “The wife of a powerful figure in CA is found brutally murdered in the couple’s lonely mountain retreat. Wesley Stoneham made certain that all the evidence concerning the murderer of his wife pointed to a nearby hippie community. He had 3 goals in mind: to get rid of his wife, to drive out the hippie commune, and to enhance his own power in the state. He was at the point of achieving them all when Garnna, from the peaceful planet of Zartic finally made contact with Debby, a hippie from the commune, who had problems of her own. Then, Stoneham’s troubles began.” OF COURSE I BOUGHT THIS RIGHT AWAY!

Shelley’s Art Direction: We’re looking for a sort of lion-centaur. And a spaceship. And gore. And…could you do something with foreshortened perspective? Thanks.
