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: 8.43 out of 10)

    Eccentrica Galumbits?

    @Dead Stuff. Since when did she have two heads?

    Ah, me – bah!

  4. L.B. Says:

    The artist’s stance; “I like my women like I like my coffee. Double-double.”

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    Joey likes to paint his action figures. Unfortunately, his new project in art class got him called to the principal’s office.

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The early days of body painting as an art form led to some unfortunate results.

  7. Bibliomancer Says:

    Looks like these crash test dummies had a side-swipe collision.

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @RachelJ: they only ever talk about her mammaries, any other parts of her body are glossed over.

    C’mon guys! How many times have we grumbled that a photo cover is just a few domestic items out of focus or some off-the-shelf toys shot against a badly made background? This one had some actual effort put into it. They hired similar-looking models, surgically removed their fingernails, built a glass fibre suit that could never be re-used, built kooky hats (or one hat, it’s hard to tell) and shot them against a backdrop the exact colour of Sheckley’s mood when he saw this cover.

    Looks like they might be wearing flesh-tone bodysuits underneath the daft armour-fetishwear-whatever. I could be wrong, though. Although, the question must be asked: how much did the model(s) get paid for agreeing to wear that outfit? It probably was not cheap.

    🎵Heaven, I’m in heaven
    And my heart beats so that I can hardly move
    And I seem to find the happiness I groove
    When these two come waltzing over boob-to-boob

    This years winter collection and M&S is just odd…

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    If you think about it, if one of them sits down to eat, it’s the same to you, but halved.

    If one of them downs a pint, it’s the same to you, but halved.

    If they’re hung over the next morning, it’s the same to you, but halved.

    Maybe this isn’t so appropriate a picture after all…

    Strip poker by a cover artist who doesn’t understand how to help sell books.

  15. JuanPaul Says:

    Their armor looks like it’s made of the chocolate shells of Junior Mints.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    But did the models get double pay for this cover?

  17. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Needs a blurb…

    ‘Meet Anya and Clara Bothrioleyva, the most cojoined twins ever in outer space!’

  18. Francis Boyle Says:

    Sorry, Tat Wood, but I hear you can by these things here .

  19. FearofMusīc Says:

    Model on the left is shooting one mean cockeyed death glare at the director of photography. Looks like somebody is wishing they’d completed that degree rather than falling for the seductive lure of the niche market for pseudo-conjoined science fiction cover models

  20. HappyBookworm Says:

    The title sounds like the lame comeback of a playground bully:

    “You say I’m a dummy?! Same to you!! Doubled!!!”

  21. infoqueen Says:

    Can’t decide if it would be more uncomfortable to be 1st boob or 2nd boob in that outfit…

  22. Muttley Says:

    The artist misses the point of the story, where the protagonist is cursed to have unlimited wishes, but whatever he wishes for, his worst enemy gets twice as much. A conundrum he solves by wishing for a companion who is just as much as a man could ever wish for and cope with. His enemy gets two……….

    Wonder if she’s related to this famous rocker gal
