    So the Hays Code made it to space and the blue-faced censors are up in arms?

    “Captain, she uses BASIC and FORTRAN… she won’t even bother with Linux!”
    “By Jove, this fiendish female defies the Code of Space!”

    Gloria Grahame leads her army of Tor Johnsons into cosmic battle! “Time for go to war!”

    Cosmic Manhunt: the dating app of the future. Swipe right, space lady!

    Those are some big rockets. They must be compensatiing for thier little antennae.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Yes, that certainly looks like a wonder world in the background there.

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Poor thing, she’s got a terribly shriveled left arm and hand. Good thing the rest of her is fairly unshriveled.

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – Both her arms are like sticks. We’re gonna need an “anatomical issues” tag here.

  11. Yoss Says:

    I do like Ace Doubles. The artwork always seems like the perfect embodiment of good old SF pulp.

  12. Anna T. Says:

    She’s clearly too unhappy about her tacky bikini and her atrophied arms to be pleased with the success of her conquering army. The red robe must be to cover up the withered appendages.

    When a scantily clad Space Queen appears
    and breaks the code that she should fear
    and frightens all who see or hear
    the cry goes up both far and near
    for Richard Blade! RICHARD BLADE! Richard Blade! RICHARD BLADE!

  14. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Why does she look like Rowan Atkinson?

  15. Francis Boyle Says:

    I wonder if the guy holding aloft an old style rifle is a Blue Panther.

  16. JuanPaul Says:

    “Defied the code of space”…is she a theoretical physicist?

  17. THX 1138 Says:

    @16: It means she stands so close to you that you can smell her morning coffee on her breath.

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Eh, this is generic pulp. Admittedly, the lady’s bra doesn’t fit, and apparently she’s suffered some kind of wasting disease in her arms, but everything else is okay.

    “I defied the code of space and all I get is this lousy beach outfit.”

    The Mermaid Conspiracy continues! Against our precious children!

  22. ProfBeetle Says:

    No, no, this book cover is terribly misleading! This is actually the poingient story of a young scientist from Hawaii’s (wonder world hideaway) quest for an audience with Stephen Hawking (the man being hunted) because she believes she’s discovered the Grand Unification Theory (defied the cosmic code). I can only think the blue men are an ugly representation of the jealous scientific community.

    @ProfBeetle, you already fit in mighty fine around here.
