    Is there… a guy waving in the author’s sunglasses?

    A cautionary tale about how failure to wear sunscreen can result in your head turning into a fruit!

    I don’t think it’s the “Bo Bottum” we should be worried about. Whatever that may be.

    I eagerly await the flood of irate French sci-fi fans!

    That would be a great opening shot for an old Monty Python sketch.

    Bon Spectacle, Monsieur!

    Much mirth from a French-Canadian who HAS seen covers like those (and numerous others such as the Anticipation collection) in second-hand bookstores. Continental European art directors have as little care or clue about the genre as the anglophone ones, as various other covers here indicated, but the French in particular have simply no problem using prurient images in a completely non-arousing way. Who could find this sexy?? That eye… So yeah, we’re laughing at this as much as any anglophone. πŸ™‚

    Femme la bush

    Google translates this as “Excuse me, you have not seen my plant?”, which in the context of the cover I’m reading as “Hello? My face substitute is up here.”.

    That’s some weird porn the OP watches…

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    Not so much clickbait as J’ai Lu Bait.

  18. Francis Boyle Says:

    Is this hitherto lost concept art for the original Total Recall? Because the idea of Arnies head bursting out of that apple has me seriously recalled.

    I think the tagline says “You’ll get a great tan and probably only one of your body parts will mutate into something vegetable based”.

    I wonder if this cover got switched from one of his other books.

    C’est Jacques Tits?

    C’est ne pas le nudie

    Nude beaches are not as sexy as you might imagine them to be.

    besoin de tetes des agneaux

  24. Francis Boyle Says:

    Er, I was confused not recalled. Somehow I got confused.

  25. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Shouldn’t this have a “sky eyes” tag? Maybe not, since it seems to be the leaf attached to the apple head. How’s about “my eyes!!! aggghh!!”

    Apple head dolls are usually representations of old ladies, not nymphets requiring deux le mouton d’espace.
