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!

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’

Published 1969-1971
