Charles Comments: This title bothers me. If they are “Legends from the End of Time” then they would have no descendants and so nobody to remember them as legends. Also did he use a live model to paint those boobs? I’ll bet she felt ridiculous after she saw the results.

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).

One of our fanboys sent a link to some “funny” science fiction book covers online. Funny as in this smells funny. A lot of these parody covers have a je n’est ce quoi familiarity about them. Check out a few:

Here is the culprit:

It seems “E-online” is muscling into on our territory of terrible sci-fi covers. Not only that, they are nicking our proprietary memes such “jazz hands” AND “BEHIND YOU”, not to mention our Dick Blade obsession. So we paid a visit to our solicitor and he said “go away until you give me my back pay”. Later he said “it’s probably just a coincidence, great ideas can be thought up independently, didn’t Newton and Leibniz both invent the calculus?”. “Yes” we said “but Newton later became Lord of Mint and spent his later years hanging counterfeiters! We demand justice”. He said “anyone can take a picture of the same book cover, come back when you have more proof”.

Then we looked some more and found this cover:

And compared it to this:

After we accused Bibliomancer of passing off the same cover to Tag Wizard AND Joel McHale, he swore his innocence. So it is obvious that we have a strong case for INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT. After our solicitor finishes his rehab stint we intend to file a legal complaint. E-online will, no doubt, want to settle this in a hurry for a sizeable sum.
