    “Two earthmen journeyed …”—so who or what is the third person on the cover?
    Also needs an “interpretive dance” tag.

    It is recommended that you drink two liters of water a day (including the water in coffee, soda, milk, etc), which is two kilos. Two kilos of gold is worth over $90,000 dollars. Water on (under) the Moon is even more pricey. Therefore, all Moon people must either be quite rich, or dead. Rich enough to walk around naked whenever they fell like it and hire people to work as balloons.

    Not even on the MOON can you get away from that #%¤&* Cirque de Soleil!

    I heard somewhere that dehydration can cause ‘shrinkage’.

    Reverend Moon’s Unification Church now holding space-based three-person weddings.

    You know what this needs?

    A “WTF” tag.

    Because seriously, the Moon is about the only thing on this cover that appears to have anything to do with the contents of this book. Certainly not the three tied-together and gelded naked men floating in space.

  10. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Anna T.: there’s also a rocket ship! (Or possibly shower head. But could even the wealthy water barons afford a shower?)

    The “Outlanders Series?” Do the other books in the series also feature zero-gravity bondage games?

    The artist is playing games with us: I’m fairly sure the butt-presenting guy is naked, although the shading makes him look like he’s wearing a vest, but that leaves one unsure whether the other two are wearing knee boots and granny panties or its just more unlikely shadows.

    The highest stakes Cat’s Cradle game ever played. Somebody’s going to be left floating through interstellar space, waterless and naked, for all eternity.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Those are not people, not floating in space naked like that.

    Between the dickless wonder, the lack of crack, and no facial features, they’re some sort of mannequins that fell out of the spaceship (which has a visible rocket spray, even in space).

    Maybe the rocket is actually a shower head, and the “people” are the mannequins that were in the display, and the whole thing fell out of some other conveyance.

    GSS to @GSS art direction, @ARY, and @fred. And I second @Anna T’s request for WTF.

  13. fred Says:

    If there are two moons then the title should be ‘The Moons People’.

    Some other covers in the Outlander series. A non butt Emsh ‘The Moon People’ as well.
