Man! Why is space so 1980's?Click for full image

Think of your target audience, 15 year old boys and 39 year old single males still living with their parents. So that would be, a women with an unimaginable rack walks in space across….liquid alien gooey stuff….and then just throw in a red computer grid and some flying male/female symbols. Sorted! We’ve pretty much got a winner!

Thanks to Mairi! 🙂

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: 8.23 out of 10)

    I have to say, I had the pleasure of reading the back of this book. And from what I gather a bunch of lonely sci-fi guys got drunk and decided to write a collection of space love stories.

    And from the inside… I don’t think any of them have been with a women.

    Hey, this has got some Ian M Banks as well as some Kim Newman in it! Good haul!

    That grid is really doing it for me though. Is there a complimentary BBC Basic programming guide included?

    I AM pretty curious as to wtf the goop river in space is.

    I love the 80’s hair do aswell. and the 80’s boots, and the 80’s sweat band. That book wasnt compilled in the 80’s by any chance?

    Schistosoma of Vesta.

    I see a copy of BIG WOMEN by Fay Weldon in the background. The woman on the cover is planet-sized.

    I don’t think this is the proper use of the word “unearthly.” It’s like saying “unearthly spaceships”.

    This 28 year old guy still living with his parents wanted to add this book in his to read list but reading the excerpt he found that the book was a collection of short stories and does not feature a kick-butt sexy woman lead. He was disappointed.

    Smell my finger.

    Pronounced out loud, this title could be very confusing.

    “Excuse me, do you have Arrows of Eros?”
    “Arrows of Arrows?”
    “No, Eros.”
    “Eros of Eros? Or Eros of Arrows?”
    “You know what, I think I’ll just get it off Amazon.”

    That “arrow” of yours is not appropriate in space aerobic. Leave before I really hurt you with my finger.

    I prefer the anagrammed title:

    That looks like a mighty uncomfortable position to be standing in, what with the unrealistic spine contortion.

    Olivia Newton John teaches math and aerobics.

    “Oi! My eyes are UP HERE!” the broken-spined, ridiculously-boobed space aerobics teacher pointed.

    “Actually, we were just pondering the best way to prompt Tag Wizard to add ‘anatomical issues’. Also ‘booties’. Afraid you don’t qualify for Sir Mix.”
