Tor Books: Embossed boobs our specialty!

Emster comments: This art exhibit? Way weird. And no way to sneak out early with the artist hovering around the door.

Published 1985

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: 4.65 out of 10)

    Yes, I would have heartily approved of a young 90’s Jennifer Connoly as a Companion.

    Things you never heard Max von Sydow say: “Don’t call me Downti. I’m the Merciless now.”

    “and if we could just cross our arms at the back there. That will be one less pair of hands I have to draw, perfect”.

    Is her nose on properly?

    Another night-club-bouncer-themed cover.

    Rock Hudson may not have had much use for Susan St James’s nipple action, but the robo-sphinxes are clearly up for it.

    Editor: This is a rush job. We’ve got to send off the new Jack L. Chalker novel right away.
    Clerk: OK. What’s the title?
    Editor: It’s “Night Timing the Down Side.”
    Clerk: Let me look through the files. Hmm. Nothing here by that name.
    Editor: Right. It must be “Side Downing the Night Time.”
    Clerk: I don’t see that either.
    Editor: Let me think. Maybe “Timing the Night Side Down?”
    Clerk: Sorry, no
    Editor: “Down Siding the Side … Down?”
    Clerk: Bupkis.

    I had to look at the page title, because on the book it looked like maybe DOUMTIMMG, which, while possible as an SF title, really made no sense. I looked again and my eyes crossed in confusion at all those verticals so close together, all raised and shiny.

    Good find, @Emster, and good avoiding the title zapping the image with reflections from the flash or just any light.

    Tor Books, from the days before they were big and had learned how to choose cover art and fonts. Tho’ the 80s are probably slightly to blame.

    @fred/@Tat: I think perhaps Ms. Connolly smacked into one of the Sutekhs and broke her nose.

    @NomadUK: Heh. So was my dad.

    Radu Molasar has two twin brothers. Well I never.
