Sorry about the delay in posting! I would like to say the New Year was full of alchomohol but unfortunately it was full of coldy flu-y illness!

It’s been a crazy year, full of server crashes, fighting with corrupt databases, resurrections and return to nearly former glory! Just want to say thanks to all who have stuck around and I still love laughing daily at all your comments!

Also just want to thank the Tag Wizard who has been a huge help to me this year! May it continue on over 2016! Happy New Year!!

First, the top rated cover of last year:

We have trained him wrong... as a joke.Click for original post

The Tag Wizards Chosen favourite:

Dude... that is one awesome nipple!Click for original post

And my chosen favourite from the year:

Sir I'm picking up something permed coming into orbit.Click for original post

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: 8.73 out of 10)

    Have a wonderful new year GSS! May 2016 be full of bad covers, plenty of RX, and more Baen than you can shake a TING at!

    Better late than never, I say. I feel confident that this is the site that will answer that pressing question, how come we can say Merry Christmas but we can’t say Merry New Year without sounding weird?

  3. Tag Wizard Says:

    Thank you for the kind words. I’m doing this for all the kids out there. I remember as a young lad in the bookshops seeing my first font problems. And gazing in awe at my first UNSHEEPED cover. And let’s not forget the Unknown Artist. We know why, on second thought, you painted over your signature.

    Happy New Year 2016!

    @TXH 1138 – The same reason you can’t say Happy Christmas!

    Let’s give a New Years shout out to GSS Admin! I remember the sad dark days of early 2015 before he led us on the Great Migration to the new server. Don’t any one ever tell him he could be making big bucks creating listcicles on Buzzfeed rather than doing this for free.

    14 hilariously real sci-fi covers! #8 will make you weep tears of blood!

    Should CS Lewis be forgot and never come to mind,
    His head will censor all the nudes that the space sheep leaves behind!
    For Good Show Sir, my boys!
    For Good Show Sir!
    We’ll take a cup and shade our eyes from what space sheep leaves behind!

  7. GSS Admin Says:

    Just for you Dead Stuff! I have missplaced Lewis so I just created a new one… bit rough around the edges!

    No boobs under here!

  8. Anna T. Says:

    @Bibliomancer: Amen to that.

    And I still stand by my position that that guy in the ram helmet is going to break his neck. Mind you, the creepy eye problems on “Nightchild” are a close second.

    Happy New Year, fellow GSSers!

    By Asimov’s Sideburns here’s hoping everyone had a Happy (or should that be Merry?) Science Fiction Day on January 2nd, and to a great year ahead!

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Admin: I see Lewis is in action already! Jolly good.

    The third image down belongs to Don Ivan Punchatz. Although that particular cover was pretty dreadful, he did produce many amazing illustrations during the 1970s. I believe he produced some concept art for the video game series Doom later in his career.
