    Say, why does the lady in green appear to have a tail of no small size?

    If you turn bikini lady the other way, her clothes reappear.

    When men without souls join forces with living machines, is there any hope for the Republican party?

    @BC: Ask Ron Paul. 😉

    If Green Girl ever stops running, gravity will cause a major fashion faux pas.

  9. Tat Wood Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: not if she runs into one of the anti-grav fashion display cubicles, like the one where the ginger lass is getting lifted and separated.

  10. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Is that a tiara she’s wearing? Is this some sort of futuristic beauty pageant?

    “Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s time for the anti-grav swimsuit competition. The girls will be judged according to how certain protuberances react to Zero-G.”

    Oh my! DAW brings the BAEN. I am assuming the above cover is also a Telzy Amberdon book. Duh.
    BAEN Telzy. Great fonts. Ahem.,204,203,200_.jpg

    “When men without souls join forces with living machines, is there any hope for humanity?”

    Is this a rhetorical question??

    *yawn* Yet another sci-fi world where women wear only swimsuits without any consideration of the climate.

    And what creep’s been keeping women in boxes? The world needs to know!

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    @Anna T.: Obviously, some creep thinks that under-dressed women need protection from the harsh environment – he must be the one man with a soul in this barbarous world.
    (That’s assuming that all the other glass boxes have women rather than men in posing-pouches or less. And that the gynoid characters in this picture are human and not the living machines as advertised.)

    Ms. Green, please explain to the red-headed customer that these wall-mount anti-gravity bathtubs are demonstration models and that she has to buy one if she wants to use it.

    Art Director #1:’Let’s…huff…exploit…huff…the female…huff..main character’s…femininity.’
    Art Director #2: ‘Yes…huff…! And let’s…huff…hide her…huff…accomplishments!’
    Art Director #1: ‘Great! And…huff…give a minor…huff…male character…huff…unwarranted…huff…prominence!’
    Art Director #2: ‘Huff! And add…huff..another bird in there… her bathing suit. Whew! Goodness, I can’t get enough of beating this dead horse during design meetings!’

    “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was 10:42 AM, and it was 1:28 PM, one of my two clocks was working properly, and one of my two clocks had been broken for the last three weeks.”

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Scott B— 😉

  19. Tat Wood Says:

    Living Machines is a trademark for a company that makes liquid compost for hydroponics.

    Dunno about men without souls. Didn’t they do ‘Safety Dance’?

  20. HappyBookworm Says:

    @Scott B. At least your clocks are right twice a day, just not at the same time. Maybe there was a power outage…

    (I can’t fathom why an artist handed a title like “A Tale of Two Clocks” drew a cover with exactly none clocks. Is there some sort of chronometer I don’t know about that uses women in boxes as counterweights?)

    “…A scientific tale of great imagination.” I’ll say – y’ever see gravity work so hard?
