Our first date went well, 'til I got third degree burns.Click for full image

I’ve been on that Good Show Sir site and I know everything at the moment is about nipples! Here my friend we will defy convention. Cleavage but no nipples. Also, she’ll be kinda silver, jumping out of awful looking flames towards a star. Oh yeahhh, consider that convention defied!

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: 6.96 out of 10)

    She’s silver, she has no nipples, she’s really badly drawn but still she’s managed to change the bulb in the A. Just nine more letters to go and then she can put that fire out.

    Her six pack also seems quite well defined!

  3. CSA Says:

    Did the artist just give up drawing her right leg at the knee?

    I wonder, were they the only survivors of their planet’s blazing doom?

    What happened to the Rainbow Dancers?

    I’ll take silvered boobs over Baen’s smirking gopher-face any day. At least the cover has less clutter than a Victorian drawing room, which seems to be the myopic aesthetic vocabulary used by most of the speculative fiction publishers, aka, trash-flingers.

    Slow day eh…

    Guess there really isn’t that much to mock about this one.

    CSA > Rainbow dancers? Wasn’t that the name of the boy band you were in?

    I like ‘blazing doom.’ It’s got that ‘blistering blue barnacles!’ non-offensive vehment swearing vibe about it. I may start using it in my day-to-day.

    “What in blazing doom are you on about?’

  7. Sorcha Says:

    “Were they the only survivors of their planet’s blazing doom?” leads me to believe this is a story about the Doctor and the Master having adventures together through the cosmos. False advertising, that.

    ‘…don’t suppose you could change the light in the bathroom for me?’

    ‘Yeah, all right.’

    Worst. Fire. Ever.

    As I write, this cover has a score of 6.66
    Nobody vote!

    What to do if your planet catches fire:

    STOP – drawing right leg at knee

    LEAP – like an interpretive dancer

    REACH – for capital ‘A’ in the sky

    KISS – your sorry ass goodbye

    (not to be taken as actual advice if on fire)

    Who are “they”? And why is the editor asking us about “them”?
