Quick dear, lets go. Sean Connery is trying to steal my man thong for Zardos!Click for full image

Colette’s Art Direction: I want an attractive couple on another planet who wear ribbons instead of actual clothing. But I guess we need something that will make it seem horrible AND sexy, so can you add a long trail of golden ectoplasm to the woman’s lower body? It should imply “you have radiant womb” and not “you should immediately see a doctor about that.”
Published 1973

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: 7.83 out of 10)

    Is he wearing stockings! Oh la la monsieur.

  2. Jaouad Says:

    They should have done something about his tanlines, though.

  3. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    After reading the back cover blurb, I feel heights of “I could be doing something better with my time” I haven’t felt in months.

  4. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The cover that gave 10,000 sci-fans a neck ache!

  5. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “The stealer of lives is driven to a flight from death.”
    I guess you have to be stoned to grok that.

  6. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “The stealer of lives is driven to a flight from death.”
    “Death takes a holiday.”
    “The Grim Reaper takes a taxi from himself.”
    “I have no idea what I’m talking about.”

    Welcome to the planet where Rocky Horror Show actors are preserved in amber.

    Or possibly her name is “Honey.”

  9. Ian Says:

    Hey look a luna eclipse…

  10. Smith Says:

    I’m reminded of Sean Connery in Zardoz.

    And frankly, that’s a thought I could do without.

  11. THX 1138 Says:

    “You’ve ruined my kinky boots, madam!”

    “Hold your hand or fall off the cliff? Hold your hand or fall off the cliff? Decisions, decisions.”

  13. Tom Noir Says:

    Is this the year that wearing straps finally becomes ‘in’? I’d better start hitting the gym…

  14. Dave Van Domelen Says:

    When comically oversized silk panels attack!

  15. fred Says:

    @Smith. I agree with the Zardoz thing. Except Charlotte Rampling thoughts are always welcome.

  16. Phil Says:

    A new tag: “moust”. What does it mean, and is this truly the first “moust” cover we have seen here?

  17. Alessandra Kelley Says:

    @Phil: It’s got the “most Proust” references? (“Ah, Madeleine, we meet again…”)

  18. John T Says:

    “Darling, will you make me the happiest fetishist in Hell…?”

  19. anon Says:

    The concept must have been “Zardoz offers cigarette to Zardozina, who’s peeing orange all over the place”.

  20. Noel Says:

    Darling, when will you learn not to smoke and fart at the same time?

  21. Tom Noir Says:

    It took the creators of MythBusters a while to settle on the show’s current direction.

  22. Tom Noir Says:

    This cover looks like the same old thong and dance to me.

  23. Tom Noir Says:

    This book chronicles the rise of the rap duo Mythmaster Mike and Sir Myths-A-Lot.

    Baby Got Back indeed.

  24. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Indeed, we are missing a tag to commemorate Zardozina’s posterior.

    Are we sure the guy didn’t have a lisp? Instead of being legendary, he just owned a large blender?

  25. Tat Wood Says:

    Shurely a candidate for the under-ushed ‘It’sh Shean Connery’ tag?

  26. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: So little-used that I didn’t even know it was a tag until the Friday Flashback!

    But yesh — what with him in the mouse-over text and all the Zardoz thoughts.
