Werewolf thing... coming out of a space ship

Art direction: Right, so give me a dirty big white werewolf on top of an open space ship with some guy laying dead. Have the werewolf carry a bag of water or something and, you know, just make the whole thing look generally terrible.

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: 8.05 out of 10)

    Wow… Good find! It’s like an amazing BBC 70’s tv show. Or a monty python sketch.

  3. CSA Says:

    Yeah, i actually like that one. It looks like one of John Lennons sketches.

    I just noticed the magic words
    Edited and compiled by Eric Flint
    Do you think Eric deserves his own tag?

    This artist has obviously never seen a werewolf.

    And if that new moon movie I was forced to watch(I was physically held down, I swear) a few weeks ago has taught me anything. Werewolves are mainly topless and go through a hell of a lot of shorts because of their transformations.

    He’s just pissed off ‘cos all he won was a goldfish

  8. Jaouad Says:

    @SI: Wow, they actually lose their shorts when they transform? Maybe I should look that movie up one of these days.

    That’s a very impressive pubic hair, but you know things have to change when full-grown humans start getting tangled in it and die of strangulation.

    Has wolfman got a Christmas pudding in his right hand?

  12. Revellion Says:

    @Rap P – I do believe you are right. My guess is that the werewolf found the pudding hanging off a nail on the back of the laundry door, and the other guy came in and said it was only November. Seriously non-plussed, he killed him and made off with grandmas traditional. Pudding related hi-jinks abound.

    Does a space werewolf have the patience to wait 3 hrs for a pudding to steam? Did he remember to buy custard? Are the shops even open today? Find out the answer to all these and more!

    It’s actually a stolen human brain which the werewolf will presently install in a futuristic combat vehicle because computers are too expensive. (Laumer was a lot crazier than he’s usually given credit for…)

  14. Ray P Says:

    I have read the Retief stories and a Charles Platt interview with Laumer; I appreciate his craziness.

    This image feels weird now that Among Us is a thing. Werewolf, the social game. But in SPACE.

  16. JJYoyo Says:

    Catchy title.
    I’ll get my coat now.

  17. Tat Wood Says:

    Well, if dog-owners have to Bag It And Bin It, so should werewolves.
