You might remember this from here.

Who doesn’t love Swedish sci-fi covers?! Recall the fun we all had with Skeppsbruten på Tschai last year. We recently stumbled upon the delightful WordPress blog “enlitenbloggomrymden” (“small blog space”) which has a wealth of terrible covers from the publisher Lindqvist. These were published from 1969-1971 and I’ve included a few of our favourites below. Have at them and enjoy!

The Swedish Olympic Salamander Dressage TeamOch stjärnornas konungar dö

Plot a course, Mr SuluVindarnas Planet

Swingin' medallions indeedFrämmande Rymdskepp

Moorcock! She screamedSlutstriden

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. Swedish dominatrix says “your safe word is Ochstjärnornaskonungardö”

2. Flavour-sealed for freshness

3. Busted by the fashion police

4. Sluts-a-ridin’

When conductors go bad!Click for full image

Good Show Sir’s Art Direction: Well it’s the 1980’s, so whats popular at the moment? Oh I know, why not put Rutger Hauer jumping on the back of an over-sized gremlin!! I mean that’s in the book… right? What!?! You didn’t read it either! It’s his 23rd book in the saga, I just assumed he’d be pretty good at it by now!

Don't move! There's a tiny man with a sword on your shoulder!Click for full image

Don Comments: Oi! Peter Pan! When you and your adventuring companion are being attacked by a mutant reptile puma with a bad case of sunburn, and said companion is trying to fight it off with his sword held backwards…probably not the best time to be checking out his butt. Nice though it is.

Art Direction: Look this is the 70’s! Who doesn’t have a LSD induced swirling vision of a womans face while walking around topless and carrying their longbow? I had one last night. Just draw, or you don’t get any happy juice!
