Green women love a well manicured hand!Click for full image

Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Comments: Most boys go through a phase where they wish they could summon a nude She-Hulk to this world. Though most boys put more thought into the relative scale.
Published 1989

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: 7.69 out of 10)

    Yuck! This cover is all SLIMY!! (Perhaps a short-lived attempt to top the “embossed cover” fad…)

    [Trailer voice]”Even a broken heart has a basement dweller’s desire…”

  3. CurlyQ Says:

    That’s what happened to the gummy Venus de Milo!

  4. THX 1138 Says:

    More like Overfamiliar Spirit. The Spirit being absinthe, perhaps?

    Actually, Lisa Tuttle is a well-known feminist horror writer, but I guess the artist decided to go for a different market.

    Why do you need greeny smoky modesty lines to cover up gummi-groin?Gummi’s dont have groins right?

    I just found what I am going to tatoo my chest with;

    “Even a broken heart has a hearts desire….” TRY and keep the ladies off me after that.

    At this coming weekend’s Hugo ceremony, Connie Willis wears a green body suit to present an award. Then suddenly – the Hand of Harlan!

  8. Rags Says:

    @ Tom Hering – LOL!!!!

  9. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Tom Hering RULES with #7. We’re not worthy!

    @Tom Hering: They need THAT as the blurb.I would SO buy that book in a heartbeat then ‘Coz otherwise, as is, I really don’ t think so.

  11. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    @Tom, I’m embarrassed to admit my ignorance, but who is Harlan? And why is his hand so significant?

  12. Bibliomancer Says:

    @Anti-Sceptic — Harlan Ellison paws Connie Willis (@ 44 seconds):

  13. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Ah, that makes sense now. Thank you @Biblio.

  14. fred Says:

    ‘Sargon’ should be updated and released in special editions based on specific artists artwork.

  15. Francis Boyle Says:

    Can do hands. Feet, not so much.

  16. Tor Mented Says:

    The noxious green fumes make me think, “Even a wind broken …”

  17. Tor Mented Says:

    A.) Trees have crotches.
    B.) Trees do not have genitals. Therefore
    C.) This woman is a tree. Quod erat demonstrandum.

  18. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @17 : also, man is a plucked chicken.

    @6: looking at the other covers, I wonder whether Stabby Skeleton is in pursuit of Gummi Girl or Vaseline Hand.

  19. Francis Boyle Says:

    Since no one else is going there I will: Trump’s wet dream.

  20. Tor Mented Says:

    @Bruce: Plucked chicken. Yes, that was demonstrated long ago.

  21. fred Says:

    The She-Hulk/Trump possibilities are endless.

    Brazen theft at the Erotic Candle Shoppe!

  24. GSS ex-noob Says:

    The cut-off top of the book looks like “Locus” was speechless. They couldn’t review the book, they were stopped by the cover. It’s probably an asset to prose that reviewers get books as uncorrected proofs, with plain colored or white colors, and boring fonts.

    Is the hand actually a giant compared to green woman, or is it another candle?

  25. Hammy Says:

    Hm. I bet the UAI has a class in familiar spirits, but probably all poured from a bottle….

  26. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “Are you sweating?”
