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: 8.00 out of 10)

    With 101 stories to fill, the baby’s one of the authors, right?

  2. fred Says:

    Thanos would like this cover. The words are symmetrically balanced. Glad I wasn’t the poor bastard who had to figure that one out.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    Twist: all the stories are about uses for a dead cat: in space.

  4. Bibliomancer Says:

    One of the stories must be “Goodnight Moon”.

  5. Tat Wood Says:

    The Elmer Fudd origin story we’ve all been waiting for these long years.

  6. JuanPaul Says:

    It’s an alternate movie poster for ‘Children of Men’.

  7. Tor Mented Says:

    So that’s where they come from.

  8. Adzel Says:

    Isn’t Waugh-Waugh the noise the baby makes?

  9. Francis Boyle Says:

    Murky murk, indeed. Nothing says “Science Fiction” like baby-shit brown.

    “Got ‘I’m! I just love doin’ me some possum huntin’ at night with this new laser scope gun sight. Never misses . . . oh, er . . . uh, oh, oh shit.”

  11. fred Says:

    Full list.

    Inspired by previous posts:

    “Gol-durn it, I’ve told you space babies to stay out of my back 40! Now git and take yer luminous star-stuff with you, or I’ll warm your ass with with my atomic squirrelin’ rifle!”

    Gotta agree with @Francis Boyle: that is one B-horror movie murky cover.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    A whole bunch of reprints, with a guy in a pith helmet going after the Starchild from 2001, who has you-know-what all over the cover.

    Yeah, that doesn’t scream “great sci fi” to me either.

  14. THX 1139 Says:

    @GSS xn: To be fair, the cover doesn’t say they’re great sci-fi stories, it just says there’s 101 of them.

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @THX: Good point. “Here’s a bunch of stories… we couldn’t be bothered to get decent cover art. But hey, 101! Such a deal! You’re bound to like one or two of them!”

  16. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “One more than Asimov’s collection!”

  17. 1Thunderfire Says:

    I feel like I need a torch to see this cover. It’s so dark!
