Tag Wizard comments: Spam Folder Alert! Have you sent us some special terrible cover photos using our lovely “Submit” button recently? I just noticed our mail client decided that many of your covers are trash and belong in our spam folder. I was only able to save those from the last month, so, if you sent us something feel free to resend it so your special cover photo can get all the proper attention it deserves. So sorry!

J Greely Comments: I’d love to snark about Saa the ancient fish-man, but the truth is that I loved this book so much that I stole it from my second-grade teacher.

It’s a Two-fer Tuesday – 1950s Ray Bradbury Bantam Paperbacks

Good Show Sir Comments:

#1. Paperback sales are down last quarter in Ohio, Alabama and California. Do something creative with the covers to get our numbers back up.

#2. Passive-aggressive cover artist thinks Bradbury stories are boring

Published 1951, 1954

You might remember one of these from here.

Ah the ole dragon crotch, I can give you a cream for that.Click for full image

Scot B’s Art Direction: OK, I see a redheaded woman wearing overalls, but still half-naked, being gnawed on by ghost wolves while a dragon explodes from her crotch. The dragon’s chasing a guy with a flaming orange on his jumpsuit. And a purple polka-dotted gnome fortune-teller! It’s a masterpiece I tell you! What’s that, you say the name of the book is what? Well, just throw a spiderweb around everything, that’ll work.

Crap you got the southern judge, he hates windows.Click for full image

Sarah Comments: I love everything about this. The floating COM-PU-TOR in the witness chair. The fact that in the FU-TAR we still have traditional, human-run courts. The mobbed-up, dark-glasses wearing judge. The spider web.

I wish every computer looked like that! Many thanks to Sarah!
