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: 8.76 out of 10)

    WHY…WHY…WHY did they not give me eyes instead of two huge purple glowing things…. WHYYYYYYYY

    Man Plus: where Larry Grayson meets C3-PO.

    I say sir – I AM being served!

    The huge purple glowing things aren’t freaky enough: they’re supposed to be huge, glowing, purple, insectoid, faceted things.

    The rest of the picture looks like, well, like the artist never bothered to read the description of the person (s)he was depicting. But what’s new there?

    The campy pose is quite apt though really it should be more moping than campy.

    He’s quite a jaunty cyborg for one with no clothes, no skin on his left arm and loofahs where his eyes ought to be!

    I shrink under the scrutiny of his exfoliating gaze!

    What good is having a muscley plastic exterior if you go and leave it on the dashboard of somebody’s car on a hot day?

  12. Ian Says:

    Is that a giant ham sandwich in the background?

  13. jerk of all trades Says:

    I think it’s supposed to be a mushroom cloud. A really badly painted one. I want to say the the threat of nuclear war was a driving factor in the book’s plot, but I haven’t read it since I was a kid.

    Or maybe it’s an even worse representation of Mars itself rising in the background, back behind the Martian landscape and Martian cyborg of the foreground… which would make about as much sense as anything else about this cover does.

    Mars is REALLY close to Jupiter in the future.

    @Tag Wiz: Another weird pecs specimen for you, fine sir.

    Sterling work, FõM! I shake Homem Mammaros’ wobbly, melting pec at you in appreciation.
