    Cover art recycled from Harlan Ellison’s I Have No Hands and I Must Scratch Myself.

    I’ve got the hair straighteners but … wait… I’ve got a helmet on! Doh!

  3. Dear Prudynce Says:

    More than impressive…a monument!

  4. THX 1138 Says:

    Is the monument that glowing thing rolling towards him Raiders of the Lost Ark style?

  5. Christal Says:

    Edward Scissorhands…. on da moooooon!

  6. Pat Says:

    Damn, the secateur attachments were not a good buy.

  7. Phil Says:

    He can’t help it if he has crab claws for hands.

  8. Adam Roberts Says:

    Rapper MC Roguemoon is in da house!! Yeah!

  9. Tom Noir Says:

    Is it just me or is moon man flipping us the bird?

    “From the typeface that brought you Star Wars!”

    [Michael Palin voice-over:]
    “But even on the Moon, I wasn’t free from the Curse of the Claw. I looked upon my hands, and to my unspeakable horror I found…”

  13. SI Says:

    That moon, always coming home late, smelling of cigarettes and alcohol, covered in cuts and bruises and always riding around on his motorcycle. It’s a rogue I tell ya, a rogue without a cause!

    With a sickening feeling in the pit of his stomach, George realized his quest to find the supermodel laden Vogue Moon had gone horribly wrong.

  15. Nix Says:

    The poor damn illustrator had a real problem here. All the scenes on Earth consist of people talking to each other (boring) — we only see the Moon, where the action happens, at the very end, and even then, the artifact(?)/building(?) in which the action happens is explicitly impossible to photograph, depict, or even describe (you can’t even tell what shape it is). It’s an excellent way of making it seem incredibly alien, but how the heck do you draw a picture of it?

  16. Gary Says:

    ..and those types who flaunt their primate grasping hands by swinging them low while walking, be re-assured we of the crab like pincer hands subtly waft ours about over our heads; it’s just makes more sense.

  17. Phil Says:

    (Unnecessary) answer to Nix’ rhetorical question:

    By sticking a crab-claw man in front of it?

  18. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Alternate blurb:
    “Born a Thalidomide victim, he overcame his handicap — and became a space hero!”

  19. Dalton H. Says:

    Or “The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress” featuring the Cthulu-looking guy from Futurama!

  20. Eeleen Lee Says:

    Poor astronaut just had a takeaway of rogue moon curry, judging from the dazzling white light coming out of the back of his spacesuit.

    Oh come on, this cover’s just awesome.
