Squids love women.... thankfully Space Sheep helps protect our innocent minds!Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Hakan’s Art Direction: OK, we’re printing the translation of The Pebble in the Sky by Prof. Asimov. I’m open to suggestions for the cover… Come on people! The story happens in a planet, so let’s have the Earth in the background, did you see the last episode of the Galactica? Let’s put that in the title! And some women! NAKED women! And some squid! NO! MAKE THAT A SPACE SQUID! GOLDEN! So, the title we’re using is now “Sinister Planet Galactica,” it suits better, the book has no pebbles in it but has a planet so there you go. Now I want the whole lot on my desk by tomorrow or bad things will happen to you, Sir!

Yes another year has passed and we have been through a lot. There’s been a overall disappointing 1000th Good Show Sir post, and a few cat people… oh and some real world stuff but who cares about that! I am of course kidding about our special 1000th post, it was excellent, well thought through and certainly wasn’t rushed. I do want to say a special thanks to the Tag Wizard, he’s been a real help over the past year! His skills are excellent and highly sought after so please continue to suggest your own tags to give him more work!

Once again no one has topped the ever strong I Sing the Body Electric, even with Chinese Good Show Sir making web imps to screw around with our delicate voting system.

2014 brings our 5 year anniversary and hopefully we’ll have something fun and actually well thought through! No promises though!

So here are some excellent covers to sum up the year! We’ll be back on Monday 6th Jan 2014 posting as normal, so that’s whenever we can be bothered!

This years top rated cover:

Look at me... you think I'd turn down an aardvark?Click for original post

The second top rated cover:

Don could only panic as he realised a normal woman had joined his odd parade! lsdjf;sp Click for original post

The Tag Wizard’s pick of the year:

Well... whatever you do don't take me to the butt lines!Click for original post

And the cover that of spawned the infamous, “The Comments that Came to Sarnath,” incident!

Anyone got more words that rhyme with doom? Good luck!Click for original post

Nothing like an evil space glove! Is that in the book?Click for full image

Jami Comments: Actually the best part is inside when I was trying to find dates on this. It’s the dedication Asimov wrote.

“To My Mother
Of Whose Authentic Gray Hairs
Not a Few Were Caused by Myself”

Yes, that’s how it’s capitalized inside.

Scott B’s Art Direction: I know the cover is late, so just give me whatever clip art you have lying around that looks vaguely science-fictional.  Guy In Huge Metallic Helmet, brilliant.  Old-Timey Person In Armor, Old-Timey Person With Gun, sure, great.  Wait, underwear-clad wrestlers, really?  You know I’ve warned you about that more than once.  Well, I guess we don’t have time to redo it…
