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: 7.69 out of 10)

    ‘… unbelievable but possible story.” A quip that could be used for any Chariot Book apparently.[email protected]/sets/72157636336287856/

    Alien mating tip: never suggest an anal probe on the first date.

    Worst production of Macbeth evar.

    The girl’s like ‘if that thing takes one more step towards me, i’m gonna get all Bruce Lee up on his ass!’

    Her right hand…did she get crazy glue on her fingers?

    “Yeah, yeah, *hiccup* Live long and prosper %#%@@$!!

    What’s with the disheveled blouse? Was the little alien guy starting to get handsy?

  9. Anna T. Says:

    Judging by the blurb on the front, I’m going to go ahead and guess that the woman is originally human, but is possessed by the red demon/alien thing.

    Ignoring that, this cover comes off as making the woman terrified of an ugly light-up statue.

    She had the body and passions of a woman—but the soul of a demon.
    Sounds like my fifth grade teacher.

  11. Mellie M. Says:

    The plot description for this book is priceless:

    “David loved Janice but the Martian Empire had a plan to entice David away from his beloved.” They just don’t write ’em like this anymore. Whoever “they” are. Possibly the Martian Empire.

    Little Alien: Hey, Earthbabe . . . hyunh, hyunh . . . want see me touch my knees without bending over?

    Proto-Valley Girl: Gr–oosss! Gag me with a frank long spoon!

  13. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I actually feel sorry for the little alien. Not only does he have her to contend with, but it looks like he’s just suffered about a thousand aneurysms.

  14. JuanPaul Says:

    It looks like she just hip-bumped the author’s name right into space.

  15. Bibliomancer Says:

    @JP – She certainly hip-bumped the Belknap out of it.

  16. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Frank, Lovecraft would _not_ approve.

    Woman From Another Planet

    I have always been told that women are from Venus anyway, so I really don’t see what the big deal is here.

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    There is a strong hint in the title that this book wasn’t published on Earth.

  19. Donald Lombardo Says:

    I love this cover with an unholy passion, more than almost anything else from this planet! The colors, the pose, the demon – absolutely fucking fabulous!
