Playboy Paperbacks - Providing the thoughts of the internet, before the internet!Click for full image

Colette’s Art Direction: I want a sultry naked blonde chick right up front, but she should be part supermodel and part sasquatch. She’ll need tiny webbed talon paws, a foxtail, and wings- or maybe just one big wing! And throw in a little hot genie-on-genie action for good measure.
Published 1982

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: 7.79 out of 10)

    Is this what Jimi Hendrix had in mind?

  2. Tom Noir Says:

    Has this ever happened to you? You’re “rubbing the lamp” and you catch two genies making out?


  3. SI Says:

    “A lusty hero, a quest, action, intrigue, magic, mystery, an atomic man-tiger, an average low priced lunch, something with a lot of feathers, a twist you’d never guess, drunken pillaging, welding with no safety goggles, car chases, waking up in the morning with a mouth tasting like a horses anus mixed with the entire contents of frequently used ash tray and a dead pizza delivery boy,

    all add up to a rousing tale!”

    But all I see on the cover is action and magic.

  5. Jami Says:

    You forgot the hairy woman’s horns. Obviously someone was going for the succubus look here – someone who’s a furry that is.

  6. jerk of all trades Says:

    Oh hell, now it’s winged> cat-people.

    …She put two djinn into a single bottle and shook it to see if they’d fight, but this is good too.

  7. jerk of all trades Says:

    Looks like I screwed that up good. Sorry.

    while we’re at it, I think those are supposed to be pointed kitty-ears. Like someone took that old standby of crappy covers, the cat person, and added lots of feathers and naked.

  8. Jami Says:

    Ah – well, they looked like horns to me but you’re probably right.

    Still, looks like something the furries on Deviant Art would draw. All it needs now is some cannibalism and it would fit right in.

  9. Adam Roberts Says:

    Omizantrim. That’s in Northern Ireland, isn’t it?

  10. Tyler Says:

    The thing is, that cover is completely accurate! There IS a nekkid furry cat-woman, and there are two two genie-like creatures, and they do have genie-sex!

    Blame the book, not the cover!

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Great material for a drinking game: Everyone has to say “Omizantrim” five times in a row — and the ones who can do it without stuttering get to drink a beer. Then continue through elimination rounds, until the winner stands (or reels) alone…

  12. GSS noob Says:

    Ask your doctor if Omizantrim is right for you. Side effects may include drowsiness, upset stomach, headache, and hallucinations of winged cat people and genie sex. See our ad in this month’s Playboy.
