Best work out video... ever!Click for slightly larger UNSHEEPED image

Guthrie Comments: The story inside features no naked women, no earthquakes and no desert. I have no idea how the artist or editor thought the cover would be any good at all.
Published 1974

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: 7.52 out of 10)

    She: ‘I read 204 pages of this…and they made me god of abandoned parched wastelands? WTF?’

    Whatever song she’s dancing to must be a good one.

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer…

    Oh wait; wrong story.

    she appears to be in pain. considering that she seems to have hit the ground hard enough to shatter it, it’s rather understandable. at least her silicon implants didn’t burst. that will be one less surgical procedure she’ll have to endure.

    Warning: when jumping from great heights never land on your knees. Your knees will be all right, but you’ll end up breaking your neck.

    Unknown Artist™ has his boob technique mastered. But faces are so hard to draw.

  8. Tom Noir Says:

    “I went to Unknown Artist Instituteâ„¢ you know! I got one cover, well… self published, my book of sci-fi poetry. It didn’t sell well… sorry? Of course you have make that a large meal.”

    Frank Herbert: “Ok its done and i have to tell you, it might be my best work!”

    Publisher: “Great Franky, great. Now to add the cover.”

    (game show lights go off, blaring alarms and 2 las vegas show girls push a wheel of fortune type device into the room)

    Frank Herbert: “What the……”

    Publisher: “Ok Franky, SPIN THE WHEEL OF CRAPPY COVERS!!”

    Frank Herbert: “I dont think………”


    Clack – clack – clack – clack – clack. Wheel finally stops on “awesome dark boobies. No face, dancing girl erupting from the ground”

    Frank Herbert: “You got to be kidding me………….”

    Publisher: “Cheer up Franky baby, could be worse look what was next on the wheel.”

    Frank looks down to the next spoke on the wheel of crappy covers and it reads; lion man in a banana hammock gut punching a naked white guy while standing in a sea of fire with a snake in the foreground asking whats up?!.

    If she’d fallen from slightly higher, or in softer ground, it could have made a more iconic cover Iconic, but not as lucrative as a soul sistah walking naked over a creme brulee and finding the weak spot, alas.

    But Unknown Artist (AKA Ray Feibush) did such a bang-up job here that only three years later they replaced this with a Bruce Pennington cover that is just about the most Bruce Penningtonish thing in the entire history of Bruce Penningtonness

    I bet if you turned the book over there’d be a wicked butt crack to contemplate . . . .

    If only the Unknown Artist Instituteâ„¢ included lower legs and feet in its curriculum. This cover artist clearly gave it his “all” on the torso, and did a workmanlike job on the nimbus of hair, but just collapsed in despair when he got to the calf region.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    As a graduate of Unknown Artist Institute ™ I got…published…in major markets. My art has been…appreciated. I am…[the] envy of my colleagues…who…wish to follow [in] my [footsteps]. I am under…the gun…all the time…[t]o do my best. I don’t need the money anymore. I have my dignity. Thank you.

    “Frank Herbert Winner of Hugo and Nebula Awards.”

    So the guy who won the “Frank Herbert” (whatever that may be) and who comes from Hugo and Nebula has decided to award… what exactly?

  17. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    @Bibliomancer – aren’t Boobs and Tits the same thing? Oh wait, did you notice a little bird in the cover?

  18. Tag Wizard Says:

    Many thanks for the correction, Tat.
