Bibliomancer Comments: Apparently Jeff Jones can’t draw buttcracks either.

Published 1970

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: 5.00 out of 10)

    I think we’re finisht here.

    That was before ‘shipping forecast’ meant predicting how online fandoms would plan their slash. I assume her name’s ‘Lewis’. and a full-length reading with pictures (curl up in bed for this – the first two and a half minutes is ‘Sailing By’, a piece known the world over as ‘why are you still awake?’)

    But Finisterre’s been rebranded as Fitzroy for over twenty years. Apparently, there was a copyright dispute over the weather. Maybe there’s a sequel about Werewolves of South Utsire or Zombies of Rockall. (KIller Robots of Trafalgar’ has potential as a sequel to ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’.)

    I wonder if these are fresh-water vampires who die when exposed to salt water.
    Instead of crucifixes, vampire hunters hold up great big fish hooks.
    I remember the terrible tragedy when a group of vampire hunters learned too late that sprinkling holy water doesn’t work very well underwater.

    This SpongeBob novel seems inappropriate.

    I have no idea what’s happened to the guy’s arm but I think it caused him to lose the will to live.

    Written by Rex Dolphin. Peter Cushing seems as confused as I am about this cover.

    (Sigh) These Faux-Zetta covers just make me wistful for the real deal.

    GSS @Tor M (2)!

    GSS @Mouseover text!

    Dolphin? Butts? Dangit, my brain went here…

    Seems by 1987, artists were allowed to draw butt crack. I get the feeling Jeff would have really let loose if they’d let him. Lots of “creative shading” on his other cover works which are seriously fun.

    Does the vampire (?) gal have a bunch of leg tattoos, or is that just part of the art style?

    If you’re a vampire, aren’t you already pretty diabolical? I just don’t feel the fact that the vampires are part of a cult really adds much to the scary bit: would Saddam Hussein have been more alarming if he was also a Moonie?

    @Bibliomancer: one of the worst gijinkas I’ve ever seen. Is that supposed to be Squidward? The “lost the will to live” thing does suggest him…

  11. Ryan Says:

    @Bruce A Munro – thanks for making me explain what a “Moonie” was to my daughter, and why it is such a hilarious image.

    @B’man: Excellent comment. GSS!

    I don’t recall vampires as being generally aquatic, but as they don’t need to breathe, I suppose it doesn’t matter. Since they were originally human beings, I’d expect her to have a butt crack on that badonkadonk, but if they don’t poop then it works out. I really don’t know where hers went; is this a peculiarity in this Diabolical Cult?

    @Tat: I don’t know, Finisterre sounds more like a girl’s name and Lewis a boy’s.
