Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Ah sure… this is on the back of the book no one will see it. Just put a greased woman on there. Though I’ve just got a new arty thing on my computer… lets mess around with a few fonts!
Published 1989

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: 6.13 out of 10)

    Be sure to use the proper adaptor when plugging in your dead-eyed sex doll for a recharge.

    The gritty reboot of Pac-Man

    The plug goes up her nose, right?

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    If you were plugged in to the Tiptree Market you would know this book is worth a fortune!

  5. fred Says:

    Unplug, tune out, drop in.

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It appears the artist has captured the subject right at the moment of plugging.

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    By jove it just occurs to me the dangerously wrong game we could instigate simply by stating the direction, “Complete this sentence . . . .”

    Behind you! Tommy Wiseau!

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    So apparently “The Girl who Was Plugged In” deals with the objectification of women… in the context of a staring contest.

  10. A.R.Yngve Says:

    She regretted the eleventh Botox treatment.

  11. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Poor thing, she’s knocked her head against the font swoosh.

  12. Ray P Says:

    Can she team up with the one who has a dragon tattoo?

  13. Anna T. Says:

    Is the Sith Lord standing behind her the one who plugged her in? Because she looks remarkably emotionless for someone who’s supposed to be “plugged in”.

    Either that, or the title is a shoddy attempt to cash in on the success of the Millennium Trilogy. Your pick.

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    The zooming 3D effect on the font really bugs me. For one thing, it is very inconsistent (for instance, only part of the ‘D’ on the end is 3D, apparently??). For another, what the heck is it zooming out of, the bottom right corner of the ‘N’??

    It’s distractingly weird.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Bless your soul, you’ve hit your head on the font
    You made a fool out of Tor
    When your forehead went ‘bonk’
    She’s misshapen and melted
    You’re golden and such
    But rumour has it no one shows your face on the bus.

  16. HappyBookworm Says:

    I took this title to mean that this woman is addicted to electronic devices and “screen time,” as so many are. She should unplug for a while. Take a walk. Maybe read a book…with a strange cover perhaps? Good for her clearly over-strained eyes.

    How was the pug grilled? Gin!
    How the grill was nigged up
    Hugged the wrong paws, Lili
    The plural who swigged gin

    Less well-known than the sequels, The Girl Who Was Turned On and The Girl Who Was All Lit Up. Neither of which had cover art in good taste.
