Joachim Comments: Ok, “Time of a change” of fashion… White undies, white sunglasses, and weird glass head covers doesn’t really cut it…

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!

    Time to hit the beach! At Sellafield.

    [By the way, not that I’m some raging pervert or sumthin’, but the unsheeped image isn’t unsheeped!]

    Time for a change of diapers!

  3. Adam Roberts Says:

    “Time fon a ChanBe” — what, no font tag?

    As for the cover art: marvellous stuff. Dark days indeed at the famous Bourton-on-the-Water Model Village.

    In the future, everyone will be wearing cardboard 3D glasses!

    These look like the children of Mechaneck from the He-Man universe. I wasn’t sure how to make links in here but here it is:

    “A ferocious and gruesome impact…” What does that even mean?

    Love the collars, they do something, right? Maybe there are superhero capes out the back…

  7. NGpm Says:

    What is it time to change? The diapers or the plastic bags on their heads?

  8. THX 1138 Says:

    @Ian: Just ask Bradley Wiggins.

    No tattoos.

    Time for a change… of oxygen! How exactly are they breathing under those bubbles?

  11. Jane Says:

    But pray tell what is this “SF” of which they speak?

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    It’s what grown-ups read; it’s a bit like what you call ‘sci-fi’ but that’s just dumb special effects movies done in prose form. Some of them land up in this site when the covers are bad enough.
    And this book’s so old that The Sun was advertising itself as being an intelligent read ( 4.55 onwards – Shaw Taylor later did ‘Police 5’) so it’s before Gene Roddenberry crapped all over an entire genre.

  13. Tat Wood Says:

    Sadly, however, this isn’t actually ‘British SF at its best’, so this blurb is to be treated with the same seriousness as anything else The Sun says.

    “British SF at its best…”

    (SF=Spastic Fiction)

  15. Yoss Says:

    It seems like a strange thing to fixate on when there’s so much other weirdness, but those fellas have unnaturally high belly buttons.

  16. DaveM Says:

    And this is why it’s vitally important to use a high SPF level sunscreen before wandering around in a diaper.

  17. Jerk of all Trades Says:

    I don’t care how famous the designer is, that is not what everyone will be wearing next year.

  18. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    SURPRISE, USERBOY! That’s a screen cap from Halo 4, and Cortana’s model RENDERS LIKE CRAP!

  19. Tom Noir Says:

    Put on your 3D glasses and your badly-fitting tighty-whiteys and get ready for the world’s most over-used campaign slogan!!!

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “We are DEVOs… shunned relatives, and we are DIAPERO!”

  21. anon Says:

    I’d change the A’s too!

  22. Noel Says:

    Anyone who doesn’t believe in global warming should just look at this book cover and realise how foolish they are. Tsk.

  23. JuanPaul Says:

    They put that clock in there to reinforce the idea of time. Because this book is all about time. You see, these people are from a different time; possibly from the future. And nothing says ‘the future’ like an old-timey clock face with roman numerals.

    Also, why didn’t they just make the head bubbles with built-in UV protection?

  24. Bibliomancer Says:

    @JuanPaul – Nothing says the future like that font. In the future, books will be written entirely with that font. And, of course, in the future books will be printed on sheets of plastic, not paper.

    Time to cut through the glare and get a better look at that cover.

  25. fred Says:

    Snow White and the Giants. Flames instead of sheep. Ouch.

  26. infoqueen Says:

    Time for a Change…of SUNSCREEN.

  27. Tat Wood Says:

    Shouldn’t the gentlemens’ briefs be more fully-laden than the lady’s?

  28. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat Wood—perhaps a clue as to the deeper meaning of the title?

  29. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Do “ferocious” and “gruesome” really represent Britain at its “best,” I ask innocently? 😉
