Dam it Tim, your gun isn't working! Quick show him your mullet!Click for full image

So on this cover I want a vision of the future! I ponder what shall humanity meet? Aliens? OR a huge dragon lizard alien!?! And how shall man react? Peacefully? Or will they be blasting away at it with a shoulder mounted laser gun, wearing tight grey jump suits and wielding their horrendous mullets or bowl cuts… God… I can’t wait for the year 2015.

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: 6.53 out of 10)

    I do believe this cover needs bonus points for being BRIGHT ORANGE!!!!

    So you have no chance of reading it on public transport without being noticed! 😉

    Star Flight factoid, +3 Beard Wielding damage per round:
    Star Flight (2007), by the prolific “Andre” Alice Norton, is an omnibus of the two books of the Astra series, aka the Pax series: The Stars Are Ours! (1954) and Star Born (1957).

    Cover could do with a nice red 50th anniversary edition riband across one of the corners. Mmm, orange and red, goes so well.

    Is “Escape to the Stars!” a tagline, or an admonition about what you should do if people catch you reading a book with this cover?

    Hey, for a BAEN! book, it’s low-key and tasteful. The font is only one style/color map, there are no ‘splosions, and no giant boobs.

    Hey, what’s the guy with the shoulder-launched laser gun trying to do? Relight the HDAL’s pilot light?

    “Dammit, Frank, the dragon’s pilot light went out again. Get the laser cannon….”

    Sadly, I was missing a couple of letters to form “performing xenobiological dentistry using portable lasers”.

    @anon: “Space roasts teeth” is perfect.
