Flying cone shaped space ships, check. Waist coated 80’s sci-fi guy, check. Glowing floating drug pots, check. Len flares, check check AND check! The magic will be strong with this one.

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!

    this one deserved more attention… i mean look at it… what is going on?

  2. SI Says:

    Yea I know… Clearly the stuff coming out of those pots is some sort of hallucinogen.

    I also do love that the next cover along:

    Is practically the same thing! Minus the LSD jars!

  3. JustinLeego Says:

    Next one along is done by the very same artist, and I won’t have a thing said against him! You hear me? Stephen Youll is a saint!

  4. CSA Says:

    oh absolutely. I feel closer to god after seing some of his other work

    (to be fair the art is pretty good, but the authors must have seriously asked for that stuff to go on the cover…)

  5. Roses Says:

    I’m only going to tell you once, if you hang out with the alien crowd…drugs, prostitution and a protracted death to follow….

    Those Alien Influences have a lot to answer for.

    You’ll see, no good will come of it.

  6. SI Says:

    Some of Stephen Youll’s art is simply glorious. haha

    And Roses I’m a fool for per pressure, so I’ll have to watch out for those aliens. And by aliens we clearly know we really mean, grey squirrels! The beasts!

    Whoa, I’d forgotten about this cover! The flowing locks, the trippy floating jars… it’s magical!

    Tag Wizard, can we get some ting! up in here?

    “Almost winner of a prestigious award!”

    “Nearly as good as the book that won the top prize!”

    “Best also-ran of the year!”

    @A.R.Yngve: “Nominated for an award!”
    …which for the Arthur C. Clarke Award means “published in the U.K.”.

    “Mediocrish book!”
    “Next to a best-seller!”

  10. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Scientists have announced the startling discovery of a previously unknown human species, with very large hands and a very small cranium.

    They have named it “Homo Fabios Cretinus”…

    Calvin Klein pulls out all the stops when introducing this year’s line of cosmic men’s briefs.

  12. GSS noob Says:

    One can see why Rusch has worked so hard to get the rights to all her work reverted, and covers of her own choosing/commission designed.

    I’ve read this one and this cover doesn’t even represent anything in the book.
