Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Well it’s a busy anthology so we should keep things busy on the cover. This is for Focus magazine… and we all know they only want one thing on their free book… mannequin cleavage! Just fill the rest with whatever you feel like.
Published 1995

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: 6.43 out of 10)

    You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. Nice and clean, mind you.

    Why do I hear “Welcome to the Hotel California” in my head…?

  3. A.R.Yngve Says:

    So “unique” means “sterile” or “frozen” or “lifeless” at the Focus Magazine office. Their Christmas parties must be a real hoot…

  4. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Let’s be fair. They got the perspective correct.

    Good Show Sir’s Photo Direction: “It says it’s an anthology for Focus Magazine so make the picture a wee bit out of focus. Irony!”

    Left foreground: ‘If I don’t have a mouth…then…I can’t drink my pint!’

    Centre: ‘Even with no distinguishing features, men stare at my chest! Excuse me, but where my eyes should be is up HERE!’

    Right middle ground: ‘Wait a mo, this isn’t a walking stick. This is a poorly placed line on the flooring. I’m not differently-abled after all!’

    I’m glad they didn’t clutter up this amazing cover with a list of the authors that can be found inside!!

    The android in the lower right seems to be saying to his mate, “If you’re not going to drink that purple water, I will.” And why has no one commented on the strange being with glowing eyes (security guard?) keeping watch on the guests from the upper floor?

    An android, a fizglrm, and a sexbot walk into a bar. The joke pretty much writes itself.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Excuse me, is this where we register for the Cousin Itt lookalike convention?

  12. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Featuring “I Have No Mouth And I Must Have A Drink”??

  13. Tom Noir Says:

    I am getting a ‘forbidden’ error when I attempt to post comments on ‘planet pirates’.

  14. Tag Wizard Says:

    Cheers Tom. If you can post here but not there then your comment might be triggering a keyword filter, could that be it?

    @Tom Noir — Shorter Tag Wizard: “cut down on the frickin’ swearin’ or we’ll slap a space sheep over your mouth.”

  16. Tom Noir Says:

    It’s not swearing if it accurately describes what’s in the picture!

    I guess jawa waiters are good enough for mannequin and robot customers.

    PS. “Click for full image” links to submit page..

  18. Tom Noir Says:

    Clicking on the image gets you a ‘page not found’ thingy!

    Also, I now wonder what comment I was trying to post…

    I seriously did not know that Mos Eisley had a cantina solely for droids and Jawas. It really makes me wonder who would open such an establishment. I mean, droids aren’t generally known for their alcohol consumption.
