Sarah’s Art Direction: Look, I know it’s 4:30 on a Friday, but surely you can come up with something.

Many thanks to Sarah!

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!

    Gah! Scary floating head!

    It’s like that time I took those mushrooms, Portobello I believe… but then after dinner I watched a 70’s psychedelic movie.

    I don’t know, i think i like this one.

    I’m definately intrigued as to why a lizardman wearing a 1900’s suit is riding a Penny-farthing bicycle through the set of a western movie.

    After the American channel AMC released the rights to The Prisoner, the only buyer was the economically challenged lizardoid people of planet Gleebanx.

    Sometimes a Sleestak just wants to enjoy a nice Sunday ride, is that so wrong?

    Only two colours – an ink-saving measure, or a colour-blind designer?

    Riding a penny farthing isn’t easy at the best of times.

    One of the moons is a head!

    This book needs a bilious colour scheme like a lizard needs a bicyc… hang on…

    Call me strange if you want, but I think this cover really works! I’d pick it up and give it a read.

    The text says, “A galactic newshound takes on a freaked-out planet.” Doesn’t say who wins, though. Clearly, it’s not the readers.

    Nice cover…

    Yea I do rather like this one. I would definitely buy it.

    Though I am pretty sure riding any thin wheel based transport through that type of terrain would be mighty difficult!

    Unless you’re a SPACE FROG!

  13. SI Says:

    That’s no frog… that’s a… well… that thing from star trek.

  14. Simon Says:

    I actually rather like this one. And I’m no amphibiphile.

  15. Don Hilliard Says:

    Minor Rule 3 infraction here: like pretty much all of Ron Goulart’s SF (at least the stuff he writes under his own name – see the TekWar entry earlier), it’s a comedy/parody.

    Even so, this cover looks like it’s TRYING to be serious. Therefore, Good Show Sir!

    It’s like Frog and Toad gone horribly, horribly wrong.

    What H. L. Mencken would see when he went on a bender.
