    Actually that picture is upside down, hence the state of her hair.

    Also, is Starseed the sci-fi version of El Cid?

  2. Alessandra Kelley Says:

    The font is spiky, her hair is spiky, and somehow her breasts manage to match the font in color and spikiness.

    What I find interesting is that this was clearly supposed to be a timeless, universal cover, and yet you could guess within five years when it was made.

    Is she wearing a fanny-pack?

    Also, you’ll note that the light on Ms. Starseed is coming from a different angle than the light on the ground. Why that bothers me, I fear I don’t know.

    It must be hand-painted, but the lady’s devil’s dumplings appear to have been rendered using an early 3D package.

    From a distance, this could be mistaken for a yoga video. (And I do mean video – VHS to be precise.)

    This cover also features that rarity, the unmotivated TING! There’s not a shiny blade in sight!

    ‘Coauthors’ rather than ‘co-authors’ bother me. Perhaps I’m a nit-picker. Perhaps I am. But I can’t help pronouncing it as two syllables ‘COAUT’ and ‘HORS’.

    I’ll get me coaut.

    I assume her breasts look conical for the same reason her hair looks spiky – absence of g-force. Think what a disaster it would have been to wear the flowing robes more generally associated with levitating priestess types. Yes folks, thank Goddess for spandex!

    If you are going to emboss but don’t emboss what should be embossed then don’t emboss at all.

    This yoga position is called ‘Pretentious One-Ness With the Cosmos”…”

    This would have been on sale when the Natural Law party were fielding candidates in UK elections.
