Stop suing us. We agree to change the title from 'More Wonder Women'.Click for larger image

Wendy Comments: OK, we’ll let you women do the writing, editing, introduction and notes on just this one book. But we’ll only trust a guy to do the cover art.

Published 1976

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: 6.92 out of 10)

    I didn’t know Nicholas Lyndhurst had a sister.

    is there a version where edited women write about unedited women?

  3. Francis Boyle Says:

    Publisher: This is a feminist sort of deal, so stay away from the sexist stereotypes, OK.
    Artist: Can I get away with an absurdly short skirt if I make the heroine completely sexually unnattractive?
    Publisher: Yeah, that should work.

    Is a novelette more ladylike than a novella?

  5. Tom Noir Says:

    It’s about time female sabre-toothed tigers got some cover representation!

  6. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Looks like a really weird game of Tetris is going on over their heads. Above you!

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Fighting a Saber-toothed tiger with a straw? That does make you wonder.

  8. Bibliomancer Says:

    Cover illustrates an extremely short story in the book.

  9. Raoul Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – I think she’s fighting the tiger with a blade of grass. Sounds like a zen thing.

  10. Anna T. Says:

    A middle-aged blonde woman in a flesh-toned jumpsuit under a pink shirt fighting a gold saber-toothed tiger robot with a . . . butter knife? Sounds right, yes, a butter knife . . . in the jungle as a massive amount of multicoloured bubbles falls from the air.

    @THX (#1): I read that, recalled the late 90s WH Smiths adverts and spent the rest of the day in a foetal position under the desk. Thanks.

    (WARNING: you cannot unsee this )

    Why the long face?
    The cat is so far in the foreground that we really don’t know how big it is. It could be that the wondrous woman is holding a butter knife to scrape out a can of Fancy Feast for the wee moggy.

  13. THX 1138 Says:

    @Tat: What hath I wrought? What terrible power hath been unleashed?! Yeah, sorry about that.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Um… it’s better than the one with the naked lady flossing the rat?

    The trees seem to have a lot of empty thoughts, judging by their many thought balloons. Evidently they don’t know how to react to the scene either.

    The quality of work seems to indicate this is another cover painted by Charles, age 12 1/2. Not good with any details or proportion, but thinks saber-tooths are kewl and made sure to put giant boobs on the non-realistic woman.

    Perhaps she’s a veterinary dentist and her tool is to help moggie’s terrible teeth?

    Is it me, or did they employ the rarely used “bums-font”?

    Never use too much yeast when you’re baking a title logo.

  17. Tor Mented Says:

    Especially for books that are half baked.
