We're so boring the water doesn't even want to cast our reflections!Click for full image

You know what people are into these days… dressing up like strange animal creatures. So put a couple of people talking to some weird bunny person.. just like the convention we were at last week! Except less of the, you know, horrible single 45 year old men looking for sex. Take away from that with a huge space ship in the sky with the author’s name printed in horrible fonts.

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: 8.43 out of 10)

    What the hell is going on with the see through 2X or something behind the guys name?

    I’m scared.

    Only two distinct fonts on the front cover? Poor show, Baen, poor show!

    wow thats special…

    the bunny thing is well creepy, and i love the Hercules pose that the dude is pulling. “god i hope someone is capturing this moment in MS paint”

    The sad thing here is that neither of these books are bad…in fact Methuselahs Children is a sort of prequel for the classic “Time Enough for Love”…

  5. SI Says:


    Yea I am sure the books themselves are actually not bad at all. Just doing a quick search for Time Enough for Love showed some epic results! Especially the audio book!

    Is it one of those sci-fi classics I should have read by now?

  6. CSA Says:

    Holy…. please if anyone owns that audio book, post a picture of it for us. Its so 70’s.

    I’ve not read it either, could have been put off it by the cover. Thats the thing, i love sci-fi and fantasy… but sometime the covers are just too much, there’s definately a limit to what i’ll happily read in public.
    In the above book its definately the bunny creature, how do you go about explaining that to anyone who asks?

  7. Stevie T Says:

    I read Methuselah’s Children, and it definitely had some sort of Ewok-ish things in it…Maybe the artist went with “bunny” to avoid possible lawsuits if he went more teddy-bear?

  8. Phil Says:

    At least here the designer had the typographical sense to realise that ‘Robert A.’ captures the reality better than the all too frequent female equivalent “ROBERT A”.

    Are the three of them are plotting for or against the revolt in the year 2100?

    The one in the middle is the evolutionary descendant of the Quick Bunny.

    The logo is like something you’d find in an auto parts store.

    “Pimp your ride with our new line of 2X Heinlein chrome car-bling!”

    A Very Mellow Revolt In 2100

  12. L.B. Says:

    Twice the Robert A. Heinlein goodness! None of the typical revolt scenes! From Baen – your bad cover specialists!

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I don’t remember any furries in “Methuselah’s Children”, but it’s been a while.

    This cover shows absolutely nothing of “Revolt in 2100” unless you’re going to count people, trees, rocks, and water. But I’m pretty sure the water in that novella followed the normal laws of reflection. I’d go so far as to say the water in all of Heinlein’s work reflected and refracted as expected.
