Rename this horrible cover!

fantasy and science fiction book reviews

 

It’s time again for one of our favorite games!

Please help us rename this atrocious-looking science fiction novel by John Rackham and DAW books (November, 1973).

Got a suggestion for a horrible cover that needs renaming? Please send it to Kat.

We love this game!

KELLY LASITER, with us since July 2008, is a mild-mannered academic administrative assistant by day, but at night she rules over a private empire of tottering bookshelves. Kelly is most fond of fantasy set in a historical setting (a la Jo Graham) or in a setting that echoes a real historical period (a la George RR Martin and Jacqueline Carey). She also enjoys urban fantasy and its close cousin, paranormal romance, though she believes these subgenres’ recent burst in popularity has resulted in an excess of dreck. She is a sucker for pretty prose (she majored in English, after all) and mythological themes.

  1. Oh, my gosh. Are those pasties? I can’t even…

  2. And a peroxided Prince Valiant???

  3. Adam Selby-Martin /

    (Just entering for the fun of it, not for the prizes!)

    ” I ONCE SAW A VHS COPY OF JACK AND THE BEANSTALK MY FATHER PARTIALLY TAPED OVER WITH A LATE-NIGHT SKIN FLICK, AND MY ARTISTIC CAREER COULD ONLY END IN THIS PLACE”

  4. Wow. Just…wow.

  5. “Magic seeds – no!
    Galactic history – yes!”
    Is that supposed to be the tagline? That is too good. Made me click on the image and read the lonely amazon review for this gem.

    How about: “The Legendary infiltrations of the galaxy’s stealthiest yeoman”

  6. I think, ANYONE CAN POLE DANCE! Is the natural title.

  7. STRIPPERS IN SPAAAAAACCCCCCEEEEEE!

    Princess Lactation and the Hunchback of Leer

    • Oh my god.
      My drink just came out my nose because of this comment.
      I was going to think of something but now I think I’ll just leave it to the masters, like this piece of artwork right here. Magnificent

  8. Imprisoned By Her Own Lightening Strike Breast

  9. Prince Valiant and the Electric Kool Aid Stripper Test

  10. Attack of the Giant Spaghetti

    (I know it’s supposed to be light beams or whatever, but spaghetti was my first thought.)

  11. The Laser Tag Mystery

  12. Okay, here’s the funny thing: My father actually had this book in the 70’s, and (as a teenager) I read it and loved it — so much that years later I found a used copy of this book online and bought it. Unfortunately this is one of those cases where my teenage taste in books was sadly lacking. It’s as bad as the cover would lead you to believe!

    But if anyone has any questions about what the plot of this book involves, I’m your woman!

  13. The Hunt for Princess Spaghettiboobs

  14. Lady Audley’s Not So Secret

  15. Virtual Reality. All that you think it can be.
