    Yeah, this is why nudist beaches in Britain are a bad idea.

  2. fred Says:

    I think this editions cover blurb would work better with todays cover.

  3. Tom Noir Says:

    Mmmmmm… pineapple.

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    The dudes walk in
    The dudes walk out
    The nudes on pineapples look kind of stout

    The virtues of a single day that lasts forever can be hit or miss.

    The Guy in the Hat—
    “Ok, well, they may be a little stout but they are nude babes after all. But I can’t say anything, I can’t think anything, I can’t even look. In today’s cultural climate that would be suicide. In fact, I’m just putting my head down and slinking off of this pineapple as quickly and quietly as possible. La-da-dee . . . nope, don’t see nuthin’, not me, no sir.”

    The reason Kid cut his hair.

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    The career of the big nudist was over once this photo emerged of him grabbing the smaller nudist’s bum.

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    That’s not the hat I usually associate with Mike Nesmith. Being at right-angles to the other three is very him, though.

  11. Tor Mented Says:

    It seems like there are an awful lot of bums on this site.
    Present company excluded, of course.

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    The guy in the hat and raincoat looks like a flasher. He’s walking way like, “what’s the point?”

  13. StevenLP Says:

    If he’d tried harder, that artist for Panther books’ cheap paperback line would have been able, years later, to boast “yes, I did the cover for a first edition collection by one of Britain’s most prestigious authors of the last fifty years” … but he couldn’t, because people would have asked to see it and – once they had seen it – they would have hit him. Repeatedly.

    @B’mancer: my thought exactly. Took all the fun out of going there. He and his dirty mac are leaving, never to return to Pineapple Grove.

    @THX (1): Sadly true. Some friends of mine were heavily into the naturist lifestyle in California. So they wanted to do the same when they traveled. And were not entirely surprised when, in England, they met up with ghost-white, hollow-chested people (with some ghost-white, beer-bellied people) on rocky “beaches”, glorying in the “heat” of 20 C.

    @fred(2): A very British blurb. No overstatement — he’s only “almost” a visionary. Don’t get too carried away with the praise.

    Are they all stuck on a rock outcropping or something?

    A detective, stranded with a trio of alien clones, on a rock spire high above the ground. Yeah, that’s what this looks like.
