So sue meClick for larger but still boring image

Tag Wizard Comments: This is the funniest cover I have left in the slush pile. So if you folks don’t start sending in some more terrible covers soon it’s all downhill from here.

Thanks to Anonymous for the cover. It figures.

Nix comments: This has an annoyingly shiny cover, so it may be hard to read its contents. It’s an anthology of four famous SF works: _2001_, _The Demolished Man_, _The Day of the Triffids_, and _I, Robot_. As you know, all of these contained city-sized giant mecha and huge explosions (although only two had the giant mecha dive-bombed by rocketships), so the cover is quite appropriate, and obviously is a fine piece of artwork: tasteful, yet subtle. I’m only sending it in because it’s so annoyingly shiny.

Many thanks to Nix!

NO! You twist to the left and YOU pull forwards. God damn tails!Click for full image

After significant advances in science we have discovered that there is one thing Dragons like more than breathing fire, eating ferrets or even gobbling down a sacrificial virgin women. They just can’t help but go after all the I’s in a word. So have them fighting for the I in Chris and make sure they have various appealing colours!

Thanks to JustinLeego!
