Guys, when you asked if I'd like my bachelor party in a cathouse, I was thinking of something different.Click for full image

Tom Noir’s Art Direction: “This cover is a work of art! A triumph! Baen’s crowning achievement! And to celebrate gentlemen, I give you: collectible miniature figurines!”

Published 1990

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: 8.28 out of 10)

    Does this mean it’s cat people week at GSS?


  2. Tat Wood Says:

    On the left, a sword and knee-boots; on the right, combat armour and a laser-rifle; in the centre, twerking.

    And I have the theme from ‘The New Avengers’ running in my head.

  3. JuanPaul Says:

    @TW Clearly she is the scout, and for a scout to move silently, she would wear no clinking armor, or even clothing that might make a slight rubbing sound. Right? Right?

  4. Tom Noir Says:

    @JP I think her appearance might generate a slight rubbing sound regardless.

  5. fred Says:

    Cat people got tail armor.

  6. Bibliomancer Says:

    Creepy, but less creepy than yesterday’s cat lady.

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Misread the author as ‘Dean, Inc.’ Presumably in the rest of the world, he would be ‘Dean LLC’.

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Has anyone read this? Do we know for sure that it’s about a Catholic Louse?

  9. THX 1138 Says:

    I’m not sure they know what a cathouse is. To busy deaning?

  10. Anna T. Says:

    I’m feeling strong NSFW catperson orgy vibes. And they gross me out.

  11. Francis Boyle Says:

    Coquettish kitty has a mane. I salute Baen’s progressive approach to non-traditional gender presentation.

  12. Ray P Says:

    @Tat One needed a bowler and a furl umbrella.

    I immediately thought: cowardly lion, tin-man, scarecrow.

  13. Yoss Says:

    Looks like it could be an escort mission.

  14. MisterBob Says:

    Just how many cats do you see,if you look at it long enough ?

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @MrB: dunno, I’ve become catatonic.

    (hits the floor as the pun war commences)

  16. Tom Noir Says:

    Oh yes, the fur is about to fly.

  17. JuanPaul Says:

    If we could skip the puns, I would be purrfectly happy.

  18. L.B. Says:

    @Tom Noir – the claws come out for this cat fight!

  19. Ikari Gendo Says:

    Can we put the pun war on paws.

  20. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Please make it Cat People Week. (And maybe use my submissions? But it would be awesome even if not)

    Is the title “oh so shiny”? I bet it is.

    Even furries look at this and go “nah, too much.”

    Cover implies Kzin pr0n; contents are likely gun pr0n.

    I punned on yesterday’s cover.

    clicks through
    Dear sweet baby Jesus. Those ARE collectible miniatures of this cover. As if it wasn’t terrible enough in 2D.

    braaahhhm BAEN! explosion meow!

  21. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I’m trying VERY HARD to set up a pun involving the phrase “Sad Kittys”, but I’m getting nowhere.

    Also, I suspect the loins on that cat lady were purrloined from a picture of a human.

  22. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Tom 1: on the one hand, tomorrow’s cover features crabby ladies rather than cat girls.

    On the other hand, every week is Cat People Week at GSS! 😉

  23. JuanPaul Says:

    “c’mon Donald, try to grab this pussy!”

    @GSS ex-noob #20 – Check your email

  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @TW: Erm. Heh. That’s an account that deletes mail a few times a day. So, um…

    (I didn’t know I was going to stick around!)

  26. Tag Wizard Says:

    @GSSXN – An email account that deletes mail a few times a day? That’s kind of like putting a paper shredder behind your door mail slot.

  27. GSS ex-noob Says:

    It’s for things what make you register, then they send you a login/opinion link or whatever, but you don’t want them sending you things ever again or selling your email address for nefarious purposes. The email equivalent of a burner phone. I got it for the farce that was the “Dragon Awards”.

    Is it important enough I should send you a functional one? What’s your email here, [email protected] or summat?

  28. Hammy Says:

    TW, GSSXN (@26 & 27) – aka a “spam trap” email address….

    Q: What is the purest definition of “Trying Too Hard”?
    A: This book cover.
