Good Show Sir Art Direction A vast ocean with ships sailing through it’s calm seas, the sun piercing through the picturesque clouds and trees with running rivers in the background. Oh, and a female werewolf resting her huge boobs on a sword, howling upwards with a dark halo…….what are you looking me like that for?

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: 5.59 out of 10)

    Thought it should be noted that David passed away a couple of days ago now:

    If it’s not too harsh to say, after a quick google at his other covers I want to check them out. 🙂

    Wow! The copy of Sorceress of Darshiva that I read looked nothing like this. Good thing, too, as I was in high school at the time and this sort of cover would only have gotten it confiscated. And, of course, there is no wolf-headed woman wielding a sword anywhere in the story. But there are boats…

    Why does a man sail the seas? To find fame and fortune? To explore new lands and new civilizations? To discover adventure? To get away from a naked werewolf’s caterwauling and chromatic flatulence? For me, it was all of these…and more!

    Was Polgara the huge boobed werewolf sorceress? I read this in 91 and forget what happened.
    No, I won’t google it.

  6. Stevie T Says:

    @rev–No, it was Polgara’s mom. But she was a wolf, or she was a woman. She didn’t go around halfway in-between howling Whitney Houston songs in her all-together. And would probably die of embarrassment if she saw herself pictured that way.

    Poledra! I forgot about her.

    Oh My God! She’s eaten Space Sheep!

    It’s HOWLING Time!

    Howling with laughter.

    She looks awfully shiny. Is she a were-fembot?

    “Aaaaargh! My foot!!! How dumb was that??”

    You can imagine her saying the title in much the same way as the dog on That’s Life said “Sausages!”.

    I’m surprised this doesn’t have the WTF tag, as that was my first thought. Only with all the letters, and pauses between the words.

    It would have been a nice, if dull, cover, if the nude operatic werewolf swordswoman (a phrase I’ve never typed before and hope never to again) hadn’t wandered in from some bad self-published book cover. I mean… they could have at least gone with a mermaid for some consistency.

    @Tat: alas, our faithful ovine friend!

    @B’man: another tag that this needs.

    @FB: in which case she’s wandered in from a J’ai Lu cover.

    @THX: or yodeling it like “singing” dogs do, to be rewarded with Snausages. I bet a trained dog could just about produce a recognizable “Malloreon”.

  15. Tat Wood Says:

    @THX: now you’ve triggered off a lot of Bob Carolgees engrams and that inexorably leads to me imagining that Vulpina here is doing the Basil Brush laugh.

    Art director: “I swear it looked a lot better in my head!”
