Man of the Mountains Comments: So, we talk about mystery, mystery reader buy lots of paperbacks. How do we get the science fantasy people — what are the names of some of the popular magazines?

Skipweasel Comments: Is it an inflamed uvula? Is it diseased coral? Is it something the graphic artist found in Friday’s coffee mug on Monday morning? NO! It’s – er – utterly unrelated to anything on this planet or Mars as far as I can tell.

Al Comments: I hate to go here in my first post, but this cover is just, so, well, robo-erotic.

Brain Face wasn't exactly popular on CBEEBIES.Click for full image

Art Direction: A giant circular brain, with eyes I might add, in some sort of… drill vice! There’s no way it could look like a giant eyed cookie or strange bondage moon face. Right?

Phil A’s Art Direction: We’d like a bunch of mismatched photo-referenced people all standing around looking bored on some kind of…planet, or something. And one of them has to be the lead singer from Mott The Hoople.

Many thanks to Phil A!

He's wearing a Moonocle.. ah hahahaha!

Laura’s Art Direction: I want stars and planets! And… given the topic, there needs to be a christmas tree. No.. subtler. Just a single unadorned tree… maybe on some kind of moonscape? And we need the human element. Slap a brooding David Bowie up there. It’s missing something? Well give the title a science fiction font, and we should be good.

It’s almost Christmas!
Many thanks to Laura!

At least these invading alien robots had the decency to make themselves look humanoid!Click for full image

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!
