Benjamin Comments: “Listen, if this book sells more than 30 copies it’ll be a miracle. It’s done up in a strawberry-ice-cream-pink cover with a bright green toy rocket ship and some cheap plaster busts of LBJ and JFK and a coke bottle and a hamburger on the front — I showed it to a classroom full of gifted children up at the College of Marin and one kid said ‘That’s a toy book.'” – Richard A. Lupoff (Locus #159, 1974)

Perry Armstrong Comments: “I searched to see whether this Sheckley cover had already been posted, and was amazed to find only – three – Sheckley covers thus far featured on Good Show Sir! Given the sheer awesomeness of numerous Sheckley covers, I find your lack of Sheckley covers disturbing, and hope this Sheckley cover goes some way towards rectifying the situation. Sheckley cover.

Well, believe it or not Good Show Sir will be two years old today! And boy do we have a strange surprise for you all. We’ve gathered some of the best covers from over the past two years and made them into two separate montages of epicness! Epicness is a word, right?

Just want to thank everyone who has helped out, sent covers in and commented over our time here. Also a very special thanks to Sophaloaf for putting together our video collections!

It’s great to have made a place where people can come and enjoy these amazing pieces of art that grace our book covers, with a bit of laughter! I hope Good Show Sir has helped people appreciate their covers that little bit more and possibly notice great looks of confusion on public transport while reading one.

Firstly, we have our Quantum Collection – Quantum you ask? Hopefully the sound track will help you realise why.

Secondly, where would we be without the HUNKS of Sci-Fi and Fantasy? Watch, if you are ready!

HEY! At least I'm covering my shame!Click for full image

A naked man wrestles a lion man – who is wearing a speedo I should point out – on top of a mound of fire. Yes, I did just say that out loud. And I want a huge snake in there, with a collar. And I do mean snake, that’s not a euphemism, but then again nothing to stop us from putting some ass on there too.
