Nothing says satanic worship than naked women releasing themselves from their robes. So just nakedness, the whole upside down cross thing and uh… those Jewish candles? They’re satanic right? And of course nakedness.

Published 1973

Thanks to CSA! You devil you!

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: 7.53 out of 10)

    There you go boys. CSA found one that gives you it all.

    Nice perm though….

  2. CSA Says:

    Don’t forget the fact she’s Irish, thats practically the same thing as Satanic, right?

    I’ve read a couple of the old Wheatley books, actually enjoyed them, there is definately not an upper limit to how many satanic orgies should be in a book.

    SI: i’m pretty sure we watched “the devil rides out” movie years ago… and i’m pretty sure it was pretty awful, but also Hamtastic… good ole Christopher Lee.. cant beat him..

  3. SI Says:

    Oh yea I forgot being Irish automatically puts you in league with the devil.

    Yea I do remember watching it and I might even admit to owning it too. Lee of course Ham’s everything but all in all its pretty entertaining. Don’t forget the goat-headed demon who appears… and… the devil depicted by an African tribesman. Nice.

  4. CSA Says:

    Yeah i remembered the bit with the African tribesman, but i didn’t want to mention it incase i’d somehow just imagined it lol … I supose it could be excused given the snobbery/upperclass (1940’s?) tone of alot of Wheatley’s books… still, it was pretty dodgy seeing it in the movie.

    Back to this cover… Its got some of the hallmarks of a bad cover: poor artwork and nudity. If only the font was more awesome. What do you suppose the people on the right are doing? sacrifices?

    He looks like she’s had one of those really embarrasing moments where you get your new strapless wrap dress hem trapped under the leg of a table and suddenly your in the middle of a church naked, probably at some aunt’s wedding, and your nan is there not to mention the wedding photographer who just happens to take a timely snap just as you realise what is happening but its too late to stop the hideous slowmotion fall of the dress as it remains steadfastly behind when you take a fateful step forward and everyone is staring and you know you’ll never be able to go to any family event ever again…ever..

    ..or is that just me.

  6. Nix Says:

    Maybe the witch is a Jewish witch. There’s precedent in fiction (well, TV anyway).

    The people on the right are obviously planning to steal the menorahs: look at their masks! Classic burglar wear.

    I didn’t know the yin/yang symbol was especially satanic either, but there are no less than two of them. Maybe they’re actually art deco spotlights?

  7. CSA Says:

    The classic burglar masks dont really fit in with the wedding dress wardrobe malfunction theory.

    Actually lets be fair, there are no 2 things on that cover that could rationally have reasons for being there

  8. SI Says:

    Little Mi > Sorry you can’t go to another family event. 😛

    CSA > Exactly! What is satanism but a random assortment of semi collectible items. So basically any second hand store is actually a ‘church of evil!’

    Ah, in the days before the coming of the sheep!

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @L.B.—although I have to say some armpit sheeping wouldn’t be unwelcome for this cover.

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    Bottom right: did Marty Feldman really think we wouldn’t recognise him with that mask on?

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Dennis! There’s some lovely filth down ‘ere!’–the author’s mum, commenting on the cover art

  14. Bibliomancer Says:

    Irish or Jewish? Witch is it?

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The good thing about Flashback Friday is that you get to see things you might have missed first time around, like she seems to have lost her—mask.

    Also, what’s holding that cape up?

  16. FearöfMusic Says:

    @b.chiclitz- WITCHCRAFT! (bum bum BUMMMM! cue flying bats and fade to blacj)

  17. FearöfMusic Says:

    Blacj of course being her Transylvanian hand maiden.

  18. B. Chiclitz Says:

    🎶🎶 Those fingers in the air
    That cape taped to your hair
    That strips your “conscience” bare
    It’s witchcraft

    They try to call it cover art
    Makes teenage boys just fall apart
    What good would common sense for it do

    ‘Cause it’s witchcraft, Irish Witchcraft
    And although, I know, it’s strictly taboo
    When GSS comes calling me
    And you say “Check out all of me”
    There’s just no telling what I will do

    It’s such an ancient pitch
    (Menorahs are a switch)
    And there’s no nuder witch than you 🎵🎵

    Somebody get her an Aran sweater! She’s going to catch a chill!

    ♫ ♫ When I look in my browser window
    Many sights to see
    And I log into Good Show Sir
    So many different people to be
    That it’s strange, sure is strange
    It’s Flashback Friday, it’s no glitch
    You’ve got a cover that is kitsch
    You’ve got a cover that makes you twitch
    The rabbits running in the ditch
    The art editor’s asleep at the switch
    Must be the season of the witch
    A caped satanic naked bitch
    Dennis Wheatley’s The Irish Witch ♫ ♫

    Would you fuck me? I’d fuck me.

  23. THX 1138 Says:

    What a load of BS (Before Sheep).

  24. GSS noob Says:

    This would have taken several Sheep.

    That font, with that title, looks like it ought to be on one of those cutesy paranomal romances — she’s an Irish witch, he’s a Navy SEAL, together they fight crime or summat. Or she owns a twee teashop and brews up little spells.

    Not a scary or Satanic font, is what I’m saying.

  25. Ray P Says:

    Man Wearing camouflage jacket and balaclava asks “Is she a Protestant Irish witch or a Catholic Irish witch?”

  26. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Ray P: Not in closeup, the figures on the right do look a bit military. You can’t really make out the veil on the white-capped one, which makes them look like a motorcycle cop, out to cite the Irish Witch for… I don’t know, chanting spells at a rate over the speed limit? Another’s the fire marshal citing her for igniting too many candles in a confined space while very unsafely dressed?

    She has to be a Catholic (Jewish Irish) witch. Nobody ever says a Black Presbyterian Worship Service to do evil magicks. And she’s dancing!
