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!

    BARBARIANISM [noun] – The practice of hiring barbarians to work in a barber shop. See also: Dyslexia.

  2. Hep Says:

    They must be some kind of saints. Even though the woman’s halo looks a bit weird. But well, it’s SPACE. So, saints can practice S&M as much as they like. And maybe wear their own, state-of-the-art halos.

    Either their heads are huge, or they are really tiny people.

  6. A.R.Yngve Says:

    In space, no one can find a pair of shoes.

    The book cover that made John Norman realize what he wanted to write about for the rest of his life.

    This is what happens when you forget your safe word – you have to go to the shops like that. Does she tie him to the railing outside while she buys milk?

  9. Muttley Says:

    That backdrop is cut out from sheets of cardboard. This must be a barbarian floor-show at the space age raw adventure club.

  10. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Ah, Mitchell, love. Come in, come in. Something to drink? Smoke? No? Well, I’ll help myself. Yes, I should say I’m in a good mood. You’ve a modeling job. Time to show off that body you’ve been working on these last few years, my boy! Especially those legs. What? Shaved them? Oh, no-one will mind. Right, the particulars. Ah, is leather underwear all right with you? Your own? Splendid! Even better. Now, Mr. Moll would you like you to strike a pose that says, “Somebody should be standing right there in that spot to take the tessellation away from the Mistress.”…my God, Mitchell, you’ve hit it AGAIN!’

  11. towrope Says:

    Not tonight girl- I’m playing air guitar. Did you make your hat out of the wallpaper?

  12. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Could’ve been worse — it could’ve been one of those ’80s wallpapers in the background. Now that would’ve made your eyes bleed.

  13. fred Says:

    So space-age barbarians pillage pants but leave the belts behind?

  14. Phil Says:

    Good grief, sir.

  15. Yoss Says:

    You know what buddy? If you’re gonna look at the rocketship like that, could you at least put your hands somewhere else?

  16. Joachim Says:

    I “like” his I’m holding a guitar, I mean chain, pose… hahaha

  17. Joachim Says:

    A.R.Yngve — wow — you really were inspired to make some scathing comments — I accidentally spit out some food at “A fantastic novel of space-age pandemics and raw poultry”… hehe

  18. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    Great, we got an underwear-clad woman whipping a chained man who at first glance appears to be fiddling with himself, while off in the distance a rocket blasts off into space.

    Because nothing says “Exciting futuristic barbarism!” like peeking in on some couple’s first BDSM session in time to catch them both with that look that one gets at the exact moment when they realize that their fantasy in action has turned out to be just uncomfortably awkward and boring for everyone involved.

  19. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    He’s playing air guitar to “Like A Virgin”.

  20. Perry Armstrong Says:

    That’s not a rocket in the distance, but a very large d***o on the shelf that shaved boy is looking at with such apprehension.

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Look out, there’s a female man behind you!

  22. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Amidst the ruins of Q-Bert’s pyramid, the savage underwear models conduct their mating ritual.

  23. fred Says:

    It’s like a gender switched version of a generic GOR title, so it should be titled ROG.
    Or just another hum drum day at the office for Dick Blade.

  24. Tat Wood Says:

    A fantastic novel of space-age barbers and raw shaved thighs.

  25. Bibliomancer Says:

    This is a Sar-y cover.

  26. Alice Says:

    Thanks to our IMAX-sized close-up, I can see that our boy-toy has somehow managed to tuck his undershirt into his thong.

  27. Tor Mented Says:

    How do pirates feel when you whip them? Sar.

  28. Francis Boyle Says:

    I like how the spaceship manages to be both phallic and vulvic (if that’s a word) at the same time. I’m sure it gets immeasurably more excitement than our barbaric couple.

  29. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Is there a “so much yellow” tag? Because this certainly is.

    Is “barbarianism” even a word? If it is, I have the feeling it’s used incorrectly here.

    The cube pattern annoys me for some reason.

    I will say that, unlike so many of our covers, the anatomy isn’t bad, save that his head seems very overlarge and hers a bit large. I guess that happens in The Future.

    @ARY (back at #7): Except the other way around. And good ringing the changes on the title too.

    @A-S (#19): No, he’s playing air guitar to “Man! I Feel Like a Woman”. Check the video if you don’t believe me. (His is the unexpurgated version Not Shown On TV)

    At least we HOPE he’s playing air guitar instead of pocket pool.

    @Bruce, fred, B’mancer, Tor: GSS! Very amusing.

  30. Tat Wood Says:

    Psst, Tag Wizard… you have a ‘Dude Looks Like a Lady’ tag and a femme fatale who looks like Steven Tyler.

  31. Bruce A Munro Says:

    If you think of the background as SF-themed wallpaper, this just becomes poorly executed erotic roleplay.

  32. Ryan Says:

    Playing air guitar while shackled is not as easy as you may think.

  33. Raoul Says:

    @Ryan – Being shackled limits one to playing air ukulele
