Good Show Sir Comments: Sturgeon’s Law: Ninety percent of sci-fi book covers are … Good Show Sir!

To encourage social distancing we recommend that our GSS friends read a copy of this one on the Tube. Guaranteed no one will come within 2 metres.

Researchers have discovered the first malware which can be transmitted from computers to humans. Symptoms include hallucinations and a complete loss of artistic taste. Scientists are calling this the “cornavirus”.

You might remember this from here.

Young tourists can't get excited about those Venice gondola ridesClick for larger image

Jonathan Art Direction: The Styx? OK, we need a boat. Give the boat eyes. No, give it two sets of eyes. And some empty eye sockets. And bat wings and a frog. And a hand coming out of a skull holding a rubber spider. Oh, don’t forget the boatman needs to have the author’s face.

A bird with a bird hairdo. A first.Click for larger image

Lillie Awesome Art Direction: Give me a little man, with a giant bird grafted to his head, and out of the giant bird’s head, I want a man’s head if human heads were shaped like potatoes, but upside down, and sitting inside that, I want a man, but with a bird’s head, and maybe make it look like the bird-headed man is shooting a bird out of his hand, which should also be holding a torch. Throw a bunch of rainbow people in a birth control pillbox in the background — it’s very high concept. We’re going to have to skimp on printing costs because we went over budget persuading Heinlein and Asimov to appear together, so don’t break your neck painting detail. Now, what say we make this a five martini lunch?
