Tits showtime!Click for larger image

Ryan Comments: Nearly everyone in the bar had wagered on the exact time upon which Silverglass’ blouse would experience modesty fail.

You might remember the sequel.

Published 1986

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: 4.77 out of 10)

    Eat your heart out, Maria Whittaker!

    It’s always the sidekick who is the hotter one. On this cover it’s the goth minstrel, last cover the mysteriously mysterious cell mate.

    “Wow, get a load of those. . . . . . . . . shoulder bones” – 6/7 of the people on this cover.

    @Francis Boyle
    I get the impression at least two of the bar patrons behind her are looking at her backside rather than her back. The lad second from the right is even leering…

  5. Tat Wood Says:

    @Max, Francis: not her bum, not her scapulae, the back of her head. Has she got chewing-gum in her hair? Did a squirrel nest in her barnet, attracted by the smell of Stui-Stu-Studio Line?

    Is this, in fact, a contest for Most 80s-Looking Coiffure And Headband? Maybe they’re checking out the knot she used to give it marks for Period Detail and Artistic Impression.

    UPDATE: I embiggened again and looked at the eyelines. Mary Tyler Moore is glancing furtively at Steve Reeves.

    They call her Silverg Lass

  7. Francis Boyle Says:

    Yeah they’re probably all hipsters who run moderately successful Youtube channels devoted to hair fashion. Except for the yellow guy at the bottom. He’s definitely checking out her bum.

  8. Raoul Says:

    I’ll wager they painted over the topless first version of this cover

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    @Bibliomancer: Or Silvergl Ass.

  10. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Tor – Or Boobie McBoobface

  11. JuanPaul Says:

    Everyone is staring at her right shoulder. I would have thought the shoulder pad would be more effective on the left side if she is embarrassed about it.

    Kim Wilde releases her new single: View from the Back.

    Gotta love Goodreads. One Fi Macmillan says: “A glance at the truly beautiful Luis Royo wraparound cover reveals that Silverglass takes place in a land where hair metal reigns supreme, but the humble bra is yet to make an appearance. Our protagonist is destined to regret this lack of support in years to come …”.

  14. Rick Deckard Says:

    @LL – Wraparound cover you say?

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    All this cover lacks is a camel toe. I mean, it’s got every other cue, including a real jaunty hip!

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tag Wiz: doesn’t this define “BEHIND YOU!”

    @Ryan: I don’t think she ever had any modesty. It’s not like that material ever did any nipple-hiding anyway.

    @BC: Hip — jaunty — check! Maybe she’s all out of joint because she has to carry the sword everywhere, with no scabbard. Or she just likes sticking her butt out.

    Blurb: Yeah, I’ll BET, Piers. You could only have liked her more if she was under 18.

    Goth minstrel is giving her the literal side-eye. Or else keeping an eye on the men over on the other side while Silvergl Ass is busy posing.

    I wonder if magick is used to get her hair like that. Because I don’t think this milieu has hot rollers, blow dryers, and styling gel.

    @Raoul: With not very opaque paint.

    @LL: I guess she could just hike up her oversize belt a few inches for support. It’s already basically right under them. How does she fight with all that bobbing around?

    Wraparound cover shows the artist really liked painting Steve Reeves — there he is again!

    I looked at the summaries of all 4 of these on Goodreads, and at no point is the name or term “Silverglass” mentioned. I hereby dub the author WTF Rivkin.

    Mr. xn, who likes a good pair of bazongas, only said “Her right leg is really skinny.” I wonder if she does have some sort of skeletal problems. Guess they haven’t invented chiropractors yet.

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    Maybe she’s a petomaine and they’re watching her blow out the candles.

    Except Mary, who’s looking for a fire-extinguisher.

  18. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Given that they’re all looking at her, and she’s not looking at them, who is she striking this pose for? The fourth wall? An unseen Wizzard peering at her through his magical Silverglass?

  19. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Raoul (8)—I hear that’s the cover they’re showing over on Chinese GSS.

  20. THX 1139 Says:

    @Bruce: Stare too long into the cleavage and the cleavage stares into you.
