No... I don't like this one it makes me look all hung...Click for full image

Perry Comments: Somehow, this cover gives the appearance of being both sleazy & profound, like Ingmar Bergman meets a 70s porno.
Published 1970

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 6.25 out of 10)

    Ah, have a heart! Farmer Brown spent all day tilling those rows, and now you’re ruining his hard work.

    The 1970s starting out in its chosen colour scheme of yellow, brown, beige and orange.

    Goodbye, cruel perm…

    I believe that is A.E. van Vogt on the left and his wife E. Mayne Hull on the right. Excellent job painting the authors onto the covers, unknown artist.

    Hey guys, isn’t this how you feel hanging around while the wife shops for clothes? Amirite?

    The fellow from The Sirens of Titan took his frustrations out on himself…and they didn’t care! 🙁

    Girl gets around and she really does like yellow/orange it seems. And fetish porn.

    That was his daughter, also the star of dismal sitcom ‘Mind Your Language’

    The cover itself is deeply symbolic – she’s walked across the sand to the mirror and not left any footprints. Like, heavy.

  17. Tom Noir Says:

    What’s supposed to be going on with that sheet, though? She can’t be said to be wearing it in any reasonable sense. It’s more as though she has become momentarily entangled in it. As though while walking through the desolate wasteland towards an ominous mirror, she just happened to walk into a freak bed sheet.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat Wood—she also starred in Fanny and Alexander Do Dallas.

  19. Anna T. Says:

    Are we absolutely sure this isn’t from a horror-movie-themed fashion shoot? Because it would explain both Dead Guy in the mirror and her odd pose.

    Either that, or she’s standing in front of a portal, and the bedsheet’s just blown out of it.

    I have heard that Rachel Dolezal had a few skeletons in her closet,but this is frankly ridiculous …
