    Don’t bite the pizza-kini.

    Martine Beswick IS Trafford Tanzi.

    … oh, look it up.

  3. fred Says:

    Martine is also Nupondi, upstaged by a leering Percy Herbert.

  4. Max Bathroom Says:

    The sun shines out of her arse, but the pizza slice is over her front door, so that sort of makes sense with the book’s title…

    The correct etiquette for hailing a space-taxi will be weird.

  7. Ryan Says:

    This is not the cover illustration I was expecting when I saw the title of the book was “Don’t Bite the Sun”.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    That nip slip is meant to keep you from noticing just how badly the right foot is drawn.

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    Her pizza bikini has spaghetti straps. Throw in a bottle of Chianti and you’ll have a pretty nice spread.

    She’s just waving back:-

    ‘Hiya! Over here! Come check out my cave!’

    Ryan@7: Maybe it was meant for an incest porn novel, ‘Don’t Bite the Son’, and they just got it mixed up.

  11. fred Says:

    The red headed cover is worthier.

  12. Bruce A Munro Says:

    She was the best student in Jungle Queen class.

  13. Leak Says:

    I mean, the title is generally good advice, but the disconnect between title and image is in the order of many, many parsecs…

    GSS to the art direction.

    Best she never get that outfit soggy in public, and in addition to the “duh” and “how would that even work?” advice of the title, she definitely shouldn’t wear that around carnivorous animals.

    The blurb is praising with faint damns, isn’t it? And rather counter-productive then for DAW and now on grounds of getting anyone to like the book.

    The original cover is also a bit freaky, but has more stuff going on than this one and no pizza bikinis. And not so olive drab.'t_Bite_the_Sun

    The artist did… okay on her anatomy? Her right knee is caved in, and feet are still hard to draw, but otherwise it’s fine. I’m not sure how she’s staying in that position and breathing while floating in space, though.

    @Max: Apparently there’s a lot of sex in the book, so that might happen. It took me till your comment to see the sun hiding behind the passive-aggressive blurb. I thought the title was shooting a ray gun at her.

    @Tor: I’d guess linguini, but same idea.

    @fred: And that one might even have more to do with the book.

    @Bruce: I award you a GSS and one Irish McCalla.

    (DVD and Leak, good to see you again)

    @GSSx-n: I never was away, I just had nothing useful to contribute… 🙂
