    Who needs clam-shells when you have Lewis pasties? It’s what all the creepy red-haired space models are wearing today, y’know.

    All those evenings in night acting school, pretending to be a tree… well it finally paid off!

    I see the curtains don’t match the…um…what is all that down there?

    @DSWBT – That’s called a shag carpet.

    I don’t know what it is, but something in particular about this cover simply screams 1970s…

    This is from the era before the Brazilian came into vogue.

    You hear stories from the early days about artists who drew everyone naked so that clothes had to be painted on after. Well, I don’t think that has ever been more obvious than in this case.

    Pretty much how I would expect the rebooted Trek movies to cover the ‘Who Mourns For Adonais’ TOS ep if they ever get around to it.

    @B’Mancer: shag carpet ends at the foyer. This is out onto the veranda. This is like a dead, skinned Elmo giving her the thrill of a lifetime.

    Now if I can just snap my head into place, like . . . so . . . I’ll be able to pull you out of that quicksand pit and we can resume our climbing of the Geometric mountains.

    She needs both hands to keep her head upright since they glued a hula-hoop full of stars to her hair

    I can’t tell if she’s supposed to be Red Sonja or an exotic dancer. Likely both, now I think of it. Also, our astronaut friend in the turquoise spacesuit who’s coming out of the floor – is he actually made of rubber? Because that’s the only way I can think for him to have gotten out of that hole. Unless, of course, he actually got in from above, in which case he’s stuck. Good luck getting out, mate.

    NASA must have rejected Malzberg’s ‘Go-go girl on the Moon’ proposed replacement for the Apollo program even though it would have revived falling TV audiences. The idea most likely came from watching Moon Zero Two.

    Recovery of ‘The Moonbase: Episode One’ turned out quite the revelation!

    Is this a still from Vogue?

    How did he get his head into that tiny helmet? Looks like it’s strangling him.

    Those Reg Grundies are only supposed to be worn on washing day.

    It was nice of whoever spray-painted the Half Man blue to leave a circle so his skin could breathe.

    “I want a cover that shouts ‘New Wave Science Fiction.’ No, I want the cover to scream it. Preferably with some spittle.”
