Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!Click for larger image

Zoom in to further enjoy Fire Dancer, Dancer’s Luck, and Dancer’s Illusion!

Good Show Sir Comments: One of our little birds sent us a link to the Smart Bitches Trashy Books blog from a few years past, wallowing in the glory of terrible Ann Maxwell book covers. We’ve skewered a few in the past such as this one, and this one. This Signet series of “Dancer Series” covers has us doffing out hat and saying Good Show Sir! Good show, indeed.

Sadly, all three covers are by a graduate of the Unknown Artist Institute, as per isfdb.org.

Published 1982, 1983

Zanthar Offs Many WorldsZanthar of the Many Worlds

Bubble BoyZanthar at Moon’s Madness

BummerZanthar at Trip’s End

Lazy EyeZanthar at the Edge of Never

Good Show Sir Comments: One of our good friends at Goodreads sums up Zanthar: “The bad news is that if you want to read an exciting mashup of Doc Savage / Buckaroo Banzai, John Carter of Barsoom, and the yellow peril tales of Fu Manchu, with just a soupçon of Lovecraftian horror, then this book isn’t it.”

1. Jeff Jones runs out of paint

2. Jeff Jones remembers he can’t paint feet

3. Jeff Jones eats the brown acid

4. Jeff Jones takes the day off

Thanks to Andre for sending these in!

Not to be confused with this or this or this.
