    Perfect….silent….humanity….so I’m guessing no invader is making a living as a politician.

    That guy is never going get a job with a tattoo like that.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    I’d recognize that hat anywhere!

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    A silent Quinn Martin production.

    A hunkbot being driven by an alien chimpanzee? In the Matrix?

    You certain this has anything to do with the book? Because, for some reason, I have my doubts about that.

    I’m pretty sure ,i recognise this Hearing Aid from the last amstrad catalogue .

    @Anna: Charles Dee Mitchell, care of the ever-insightful Goodreads, says *ahem* ‘The first landing parties of two rival species, disguised as humans, are establishing their footholds on the planet to prepare us for a coming intergalactic war. The only human characters tend to be either helitaxi pilots or hotel concierges. Many of them might be robots.’ So, perhaps stuffing someone into someone else relates to the subject of the book, if you squint at it a bit.

    How the Grinch replicated humanity.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    Their infiltration would have gone a lot more smoothly if they’d realised that humans aren’t mauve.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    It’s a before-and-after poster showing the benefits of chin implants, namely becoming a perfect replica of humanity.

  12. Noel Says:

    I managed to replicate this in the shower once. Don’t ask.

  13. Anna T. Says:

    @DSWBT: Okay, so this cover actually does have something to do with the book, which on this site is not especially common. However, the odds of one of the alien species looking like green chimpanzees is still unlikely.

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Goodness! It’s the same hat as we saw previously! No wonder her proportions looked more than a bit absurd, she’s a puppet being manipulated by an anglerfish.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    There are silent invaders…there are deadly invaders…but there don’t seem to be silent BUT deadly invaders.
