    I like this cover. The art is clear, crisp and conveys the creepiness of the “well-meaning” robots.

    (Though why does one of them seem to have boobs?? Makes no sense.)

  3. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @A. R. Yngve: perhaps it’s mighty pectoral muscles? (Although that doesn’t make sense either).

    I dunno: the pic at first made me think “anal probe aliens” rather than “excessively helpful robots.”

    “I’m sorry sir, that wig and those ‘muscles’ you drew on your body with eyebrow pencil are in contravention of Borough by-laws. As is streaking. And please do not adopt action-hero landing poses on staircases, you may do yourself considerable harm.”

    “C’mon human. Just one shot of Getsometing™ and you’ll be the star of the disco. Well, actually you’ll be the ball of the disco – John Travolta broke the last one with over-enthusiastic arm thrusts.”

    Android ‘roids for the humanoid!

    First off, a GSS to both Lord K and the mouseover text.

    I do wish we were able to put it so starkly (har): either get your shot from a nice nurse type, or be hunted down by androids while in the buff. Pharmacies and medical offices would be full, except for those who have the particular quirk of liking robots while naked.

    This cover really isn’t that bad. At least as the artwork goes. Could do without all the swoopy lines taking up half the cover, though.

    @Bruce: without the TING! it would definitely be anal probe aliens. Particularly as the bots are black in the book.

    @BC: he does look like that’s what’s been happening.

    Shoving is the answer. They will go down the stairs.

    “- and a kindness which enslaves!”

    Sorta like Netflix, right?

  12. JJYoyo Says:

    @Emster: yes, except for the kindness part.
