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: 6.10 out of 10)

    Sorry, but it’s still Mars 1 – Moon 0 in space erotica.

    Most people would have a hula girl on their dashboard, but he had to be different…

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    More like “I Love Porn Quest” – am I right?

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    This guy is headed for a premature ejection.

  5. JuanPaul Says:

    @THX It’s just a dashboard Mary without the dress on.

  6. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Within every spaceman, there’s a little naked woman trying to get out.

    (Surely it’s Moon Lovers rather than Moonlovers? He doesn’t want to make out with the Moon itself, does he?)

    “My God…it’s full of Joan Collins!”

  8. fred Says:

    Oh my……..
    ‘One of the dumbest, worst books I’ve ever read, The Moonlovers is a sleaze novel with sci-fi trappings’.

  9. Bibliomancer Says:

    He’ll be safe from this vixen as long as he stays locked inside his spacesuit

  10. Francis Boyle Says:

    Well he certainly looks like he is – not sure about her.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    This cover really has that paint-by-numbers look. Either that or “Cupid’s Javelin” (thx @fred) is doubling as a paintbrush.

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    Either he’s the same size all over and there are little legs kicking around inside the giant space-suit’s chest and tiny arms reaching the suit’s shoulders, or he has a head the size of a lemon and a coconut-scale helmet.

    Or, hypothetically, he has a six-foot neck and his head’s further away than his body, but we can’t tell from this angle.

  13. Ryan Says:

    Not even the most alluring Space Brunette could ever fill the gaping void within Moonlover.

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Tat Wood: maybe that’s Master (without his sunglasses) in the helmet and Blaster working the arms?

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    @Bruce: apparently, we DO need another hero.

    Just not Dick Blade.

  16. Tor Mented Says:

    Lots of great comments today. GSS everyone.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Tiny naked nipple-less woman manipulated by pinhead spaceman in pink spacesuit.

    That says less “erotic space odyssey” than “horny teen videogaming in his parent’s Moon basement”.

    GSS to all, and special thanks(?) to @fred for the review link.

    Pretty sure everything we imagined is better than the actual book.

    Just as he thought he was going to “get lucky”, a Minecraft humanoid suddenly crashed right through him….
