You might remember this from here.

Published 1975

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: 7.33 out of 10)

    ‘Always store beer in a dark place.’

    ‘Rub her feet.’

    The soy diet was healthier – yet there were side effects.

  4. Tat Wood Says:

    As I recall, Lazarus Long, Lorelei Lee and Lapis Lazuli were all ginger. Presumably the publishers thought that would gross out potential readers.

    It’s more like tough love. It’s gonna be tough to do anything.

    I replaced my cumbersome dual camera strap system with a couple of embedded babes. I can carry two camera backs, a couple of lenses, and also stuff loads of cards and batteries in these handy elastic cups.

    This, sadly, is the edition we have. Or rather had, since it is now clogging up the used bookstore shelves or dumpster.

    Also it was the cover on my high school library’s shelf, and you can damn well believe I didn’t read it on the bus.

    I liked it at the time, and reread it at least once, but I’m sure it would annoy the hell outta me now.

    @Tat, JP, Nomad: GSS!

    He wasn’t so much a girl magnet as a tar pit.

  9. Leak Says:

    This cover perfectly pictures the phrase “stuck in mole-asses”…

    (ass-uming he has two moles on his torso)

    Wow, Berkley Medallion Books did Heinlein dirty with this nonsense. How can you treat the Dean of Science Fiction like that?

    Who knew that yellow was the color of longevity.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @fred: Only in budgie-smugglers.

    Which might have also been cloned for the girls’ tops.

    I can’t believe this only has a 5.00 rating. It’s so much worse than the other cover here, which got a 7.92.

    “Put on a shirt, old man.”

    “I can’t! I literally CAN’T!!”
