You might remember this from here.


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: 8.79 out of 10)

    Snakey says “Psssssst… You’ve forgotten to put your clothes on.”

  2. THX 1138 Says:

    Oh, it’s two separate stories! Well, that could lead to an unfortunate misunderstanding.

  3. Bibliomancer Says:

    So is this cover art for Image of the Beast ? I’d hate to think it was for Blown.

    She’s got a particularly bad case of vagina dentata there.

    After Billy had Photoshopped the cover and sent it in, he went back to the classroom, popped a zit, and started to draw the logos of his favorite death-metal bands in the margins of his schoolbooks.

    It does look like there is some blowing up taking place behind her so both stories may be represented.

    Wikipedia: “The story follows Herald Childe, a private detective, who is sent a snuff film of his partner being murdered by what appears to be a vampire. His investigation into the identity of the killers leads him into a world of apparent monsters who have a predilection for brutal and supernatural sex. The monsters including vampires, werewolves, snake-women, other undefined shape-changers and his ex-wife.” Didn’t know that Wikipedia ever stooped to jokes.

    “Blown” is apparently the sequel. After Dave van D’s comment there seems to be nothing more to say, other than that torture and treachery aren’t my kind of lechery.

    What is it with these creepy human-headed snakes. And why isn’t this one wearing a helmet?

  10. Anna T. Says:

    Are they going to have sex? Because if so, that’s a mental image I really didn’t need.

  11. Tor Mented Says:

    The art department misunderstood when told that there needs to be a colon on the cover.

    folks, remember to spread your sunblock evenly and wait 30 minutes before getting in the water.

    Worst case of venereal disease I’ve ever seen.

    Come to think of it, I can remember two other Farmer stories with a cocksnake. Seems a bit of a running, hmm, gag for him.

    That’s all I got.

  15. Tor Mented Says:

    GSS Xn: Comment-wise or stomach-wise?

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    There are some people in America who see this cover when they hear the name “Nancy Pelosi.”

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tor: Both.

    @BC: Nancy’s always been way more boring than this. Nice Catholic housewives don’t go around needing Space Sheep or consorting with snakes and skulls.

    And wasn’t it some Republican bimbo who had to state on her TV ads “I am not a witch”? Cover gal here does have those Michelle Bachmann crazy eyes. And you know Michelle ain’t gettin’ any from her swishy hubby, so she might have to turn to… other methods.

    It’s these types of teachers who give yoga a weird reputation.
