Published 1982

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!

    Escape from wardrobe malfunction.

    She’s got a Cleaving sword. He’s packin’ quite a pistol. And, would you look at her Bazooka!

    They all have razor blades on the cover of “Escape from Emo.”

    If it’s for ‘adults’ I would have expected a flock o’ space sheep.

    Going on the entirely unfounded theory that “John Cleve” is in fact a thinly disguised pseudonym for John Cleese I’m going to assume that this book recounts the adventures of Sybil Fawlty IN SPACE.

    Watch out! They’re all firing splooge guns!

    Some Offutt paperbacks at Biblio for sale, mainstream and sleaze. Most ‘from the authors estate’. Some autographed. Into the 3rd page. The Spaceways V. 1-5 has the first 4 covers in the series.

    @fred—Thanks for that link. I like his array of clever compensatory pseudonyms, like “Jeff Morehead” and “Jeff Woodson.” He should have gone a little further with this one and just signed himself “John Cleveage.” I also got a kick out of the exclamation point in the title The Wife Who Loved to Watch!

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    On second thought, maybe he should have gone with Escape From Cleavage by John Macho.

    @B. Chiclitz
    If he can’t cope with cleavage, he can’t be all that macho, can he?

    You may escape from Macho, but you’ll carry the heavy burden of silicone with you.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    There also exists the possibility that Macho let her escape because she is so… extra, as the kids say.

    Is the guy behind her escaping with her? And what significance do the space station and buxom blonde in the insets have?

    @Tag W: “ridiculous haircut” seems like such an understatement. She’s taken out more than one planet’s ozone layer with that ‘do.

    @fred: Am I the only one to find it *really disquieting* when an Offutt book is listed as having “some stains”?

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob: maybe it’s Space Station Macho?

    (Orbiting a bit further out than Space Station Jock but closer in than Space Station Toxic Masculinity)

  14. Raoul Says:

    @GSSexnoob – The title actually might be Escape from Macho John Cleve

  15. A. R. Yngve Says:

    George Harrison?

  16. JJYoyo Says:

    Excuse me, but at the risk of being out of step with the times… why would one *want* to Escape From Macho? I spent my formative years trying, very unsuccessfully, trying to Escape *Into* Macho….. 😜
