... keeps the doctor from gay!Click for larger image

Tat Wood Comments: I can’t come up with anything more damning than the blurb (crummy punctuation and all):

Post-Holocaust Paris is a pretty seedy stand-in for the original, but what can you expect when the government’s main aim is Orgasm Prevention, and when the national hero is wandering around in Nowhen…

But things are changing! Rumor hs it that the Timetraveler is coming back. In a few months. At which point, Time itself will come to an end…

Published 1980

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: 7.50 out of 10)

    This is the kind of doctor who will inscribe his initials on your liver.

    Looks a lot older than 2004, though.

  2. Tag Wizard Says:

    @THX – You’re right. Date fixed and summer intern fired.

  3. Francis Boyle Says:

    The rest of the title was, of course, “won’t keep Dexter away” but the editor decided the cover was skeevy enough as it is.

  4. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    First published in 1960. Not the original title, it appears, which was The Day of Timestop. Perhaps a clue there as to the demographic they were after in 1980?

  5. Leak Says:

    “A woman a day keeps the doc in med-bay?”

  6. fred Says:

    The medallion would suggest 3.14 women a day.

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    What’s with that pretentious little left-hand pinkie there holding the scalpel? Maybe we need a “pretentious pinkie” tag.

  8. JuanPaul Says:

    It’s the hetero’s Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    “I’ve been making a woman, with brown hair and big bosom…”

  9. GSS ex-noob Says:

    This is simply pathetic. In just about every way, including title, art, nonsensical blurb. Feh.

  10. Anna T. Says:

    That spelling mistake in the blurb makes me cringe.

    As does the misogynistic title, which apparently isn’t even the original.

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    A prime example of the “Serial Killers Are Our Target Audience” school of cover design.

    Now excuse me for a moment, I’m feeling ill…
