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!

    Oh, I suppose we just forget about catalytic convertors in the future, do we?

    Buy two identical gowns at full price, get a third identical gown absolutely free!

    Something tells me those women aren’t innocent school marms.

    It’s Marlene Dietrich in Der Blaue Engels.

  6. Tat Wood Says:

    Two of them are wearing masks. Isn’t that a bit redundant, given that nobody will know which one of them any one lady is?

  7. Raoul Says:

    Peter Jones sure likes painting nose cones.

  8. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Did the Marlene in the Middle lose her helmet? Is her head smoking? Was she just sideswiped by the rocket? (And if so, is she huge or is the rocket tiny?)

    There was (I think) a sequel called Last Stand of the DNA Cowboys, which at least had a more on topic cover.

    I saw the title and the damsel’s top portions and thought “heh, yeah, I BET I know HOW they’re questing…” and the rest of it loaded. Yep. Subtlety, thy name is not UAI grads.

    TBF, since all the women on that planet/civilization seem to be identical, getting some new DNA in that gene pool probably isn’t a bad idea.*

    @Bruce, @THX: good questions.

    @Raoul: I was trying to think of a funny way to indicate that concept. GSS!

    No new news on the condition of my ankle. It’s still busted, and I’m still wearing a boot that weighs approximately 50 pounds (22.6 kg), or so it seems. It’s rather Mad-Max-esque.

    *I had an interesting chat last week with the woman who’s in charge of swapping baboons between our local zoo and others to increase their genetic diversity. Also, she convinced her gynecologist to prescribe birth control for the baboons too, which isn’t a discussion you have every day.

    @GSSxN – Hope you get better soon. But in the meantime, may I recommend this cover for your next “recreations”:

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The spaceship may be veering wildly out of control because Masked Lady #3 has broken off its communication antenna, and Maskless Lady #1 seems to have surreptitiously removed a crucial “O” ring, disguising it as a fashion accessory on her left index finger.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I just saw an old rap video that is the MTV equivalent of this (and many other) GSS entry. Phallic spaceship, scantily clad ladies, etc.

    @Tag: My feet aren’t that swollen!

    The incision itches a lot, so I periodically have to un-Velcro the bondage-esque straps to get the damn thing loose enough to scratch, then put it back on after the straps have stuck to themselves and everything else.

    I am informed the damn thing only weighs 2.25 lb (just over a kilo) but this is clearly a lie. It looks pretty much like this, only all plastic, with hard plastic all around the foot and up each side to just below my knee, NO arch support, Klein-bottle-shaped inner cloth bits, and the aforementioned yards of Velcro straps.

    And despite being called a “walker boot”, you’re not allowed to put weight on it, just support the damn thing on your broken ankle…it weighs more than the cast did!

    I have at least 3 more weeks in this, with nowt but OTC pain killers.

  13. Tracy Says:

    The plight of the middle woman disturbs me. The picture suggests that the spaceship shot off the top of her head, removing the helmet-mask she should have been wearing and causing her scalp to smoke.

  14. Hammy Says:

    @Tracy (lucky 13):

    Is that what happened? When I first saw the cover, it looked like the middle woman was wearing a hard hat….

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tracy: I think you’re onto something there. It might be just her hair smoking, as it seems to have been burned off by the exhaust.

    Those ladies will never give you their DNA if you go making them bald, cowboys. At least not in MOST genres, but there’s always Rule 34.

  16. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Menage a quatre anyone?

  17. anon Says:

    “The quest of the Edna Cowboys” was the obscure, but critically well-received space opera record by a 1950s all-girl band The Edna Cowboys. This is the even more obscure misprint of its cover.
