    Oh, I know these books, the Where’s Justin Hayward? series.

  2. MakkaPakka Says:

    Much read in the MakkaPakka household. Mrs Makka Pakka began to say “Gods Rot”. But it was only possible to tell what happened by getting the sequel which had a relatively lucid synopsis of the last one at the start.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    Followed by Brannigan Zapps Back?

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    The Kif Strike Back: The Kif Richards Story

  5. fred Says:

    I WOULD read a book titled ‘The Hip Strike Bach’.

  6. Michael Says:

    Is that a cameo by Luke Skywalker?

  7. Lillie Awesome Says:

    The reopened Studio 54 just never managed to capture the vibe of the original.

    I know its wrong , but i quite like this cover !

  9. Francis Boyle Says:

    Supposedly there’s a Japanese word for someone who looks like they should be attractive when seen from the from the back. I hadn’t realised that it applies to books as well.

    If you ever wondered what Luke Skywalker got up to between Empire and Return of the Jedi, here you go.

    Did someone actually buy that full set of Phantasia Press covers? If so, there‚Äôs this bridge…

  13. B.Chiclitz Says:

    I thought you were supposed to smoke kif, not engage in physical combat with it.

  14. fred Says:

    Mullets would improve this cover maybe 15%.

  15. Anna T. Says:

    If this is supposed to be fighting, I hate to disappoint you, but it looks way more like a dance party.

  16. JuanPaul Says:

    I can’t tell if the hooded alligator is flashing a gang sign or flicking a booger.

  17. Ikari Gendo Says:

    Is that bald drow/Egyptian cosplayer twerking?

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @THX: yep, my thought also went to Kif Kroker, but of course he’s not at all hairy. Even if striking back at Zap would be good for him and the universe.

    @Lillie, AnnaT: I was thinking we needed the “interpretive dance” tag myself. That one guy appears to be letting his freak flag fly, and the African warrior behind him is also clearly dancing. Also there seems to be an observing crowd on the balcony, possibly the VIP lounge? Is the one on the spine the owner?

    What young Justin Skywalker is doing there is beyond me.

    Do the kif wax their bodies? There’s no logical reason at all for them to be so hairy from the chin up and so smooth otherwise. The Dance Club of Dr. Moreau?

  19. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Mall security were helplessly fascinated by the Kif”s sexy gun dance.

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Come on, Kif!
    Let your Furry move to the music…

  21. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Say, has anyone seen two droids? Hello?”

  22. Tom Noir Says:

    Not one of David Bowie’s better album covers, if I’m honest.

  23. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Melvin suddenly realized he had gotten the addresses mixed up. This wasn’t the Star Wars convention… it was YiffCon 37!
