    Nelly the Elephant packed her trunk and said… that’s a weird place for a trunk.

    Based on the title this should be the novelisation of a cheap 80s direct to video thriller starring an Arnie wannabee but I suppose mermaid porn will do. BTW, how do you get a sunset under the water.

    All together now!

    Unda da sea,
    Darling it’s better,
    Down where it’s wetter…!”

    Wonder what the cover would look like if the writer was ‘the brilliant ideas woman of British science fiction’.

    This SpongeBob/Shining mash-up is unhinged.

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    It seems like there might be something wrong with her chest, but I just can’t get a handle on it.
    Also, why is she offering us an iron cross?

  7. B. Chiclitz Says:

    She’s suffering from a bad case of swollen calves, a common affliction among creatures who live under high pressure, especially when they have no feet. Looks like it’s gotten so bad she’s about to have her legs amputated.

  8. Tat Wood Says:

    @Fred: it would look exactly the same with Peter A Jones slapping whatever he felt like on the cover. I’ve read the book and I don’t remember any Space Monkeys.

  9. JuanPaul Says:

    Forget the tentacle coming out of her chest. I’m freaked out by the superfluous third nipple.

    I didn’t know “Financial Times” was the publication to go to for reviews of science fiction. Silly me.

  11. Anna T. Says:

    So she’s a mutant Troll doll then?

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    @Ikari Gendo: No FT, no comment.

    “The brilliant ideas man… but never mind that, here’s some tits.”

    @Tag Wiz: good new tag, though it looks to me like a chest tentacle. And GSS for the mouseover.

    @Francis: I hadn’t got as far as the background, too busy wondering about the tentacle and critters, but fair point on the underwater sunset. Maybe she and the critters are in a large fish tank close to the camera in front of the sunset?

    @BC: Feet are hard to draw. Apparently so are calves. Maybe she’s going to have tentacles implanted there, too, to go with the chest one, after the thing on the right amputates them. No telling what the thing on the left is going to cut off.

    @Ikari: good point.

    @JuanPaul: aren’t all third nipples superfluous, by definition?

  14. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    GSSXN@13: what about the lady with 3 boobs (

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @L_L: Point taken. Let me rephrase; any amount of nipples over the amount of boobs is superfluous.

  16. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @GSSxn: I take issue with your previous comments on behalf of my cat, who I’m sure would consider three nipples insufficient, but like most sensible mammals only develops boobs when needed. (regardless of what all the unnecessarily anthropomorphic cat women on GSS look like) Male humans, for that matter, are also nippled and boobless – well, at least until middle age, and I suppose they are superfluous.

    The Financial Times would not be this careless. Please rephrase your comment again.

    That chest tentacle is weird by anybodys standards though.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @VLTTP: Indeed, being owned by cats myself, I am familiar with rows of nipples. However, they generally come in even numbers, arranged symmetrically. Male human nipples, while not having a practical use, at least come one per chest area, two per chest. The being on this cover, as a probably-female humanoid, should have two nipples and NO chest tentacles.

    At least she’s only got one navel.

    I don’t care for the Financial Times’ punctuation of their blurb either, but we’ll have to agree to disagree there.

    @Ikari: One could consider economics a sort of fantasy… a lot of supposedly brilliant ideas that don’t work in the real world.
