Cobras, cleavage and covers!

This Robert Bonfils cover certainly catches the eye with its mix of sex and death.Jeff Katherine Jones (the artist transitioned) gives us one of his Frank Frazetta-style covers.A rather Dali-esque cover from Richard Powers.A couple of robot covers. First a cute one from HW McCauley — seriously, what’s the woman scared of?A more ominous metalloid from H. Lawrence HoffmanAnd another Powers to finish off with.#SFWApro.

Let’s look at some cover images shall we?

Two by Jack Gaughan. And yes, that’s the same John Jakes now known for North and South.One by Sergio Leone for this James Bond/SF adventure mashup.I believe Robert McGinnis did this Carter Brown cover. Less skin than usual for that series, but the trippy wallpaper makes it, like the Leone, very much of its time.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holder.

And this week Wednesday also means covers …

The corrections process on the PDF for Aliens Are Here is going smoothly so I would probably have managed a post if not for the power outage today. On the plus side, it was brief so our food in the fridge didn’t spoil. I did a lot of cooking last weekend so I would not have appreciated that.

I’m always a sucker for the old Ballantine Books covers. This one’s uncredited.

I imagine the story behind this Emmett Watson cover isn’t as supernatural as it looks.The puzzle is why the woman on this Ed Emshwiller cover is wearing a radio telescope for a hat.One of those Evening Gowns in Space covers, but by Walter Popp rather than Earle Bergey.#SFWApro.

Indexing is still kicking my butt—

So I’m too zonked for an intelligent post today. Here’s a look at my chapter titles for Aliens Are Here:I went into the contents in more detail a few months back.  And here’s Richard Powers’ cover for Childhood’s End. I don’t spotlight the SyFy miniseries in my book but I do discuss it in the Gods From Outer Space chapter.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.

Cover images for your Tuesday perusal

Untamed country girls have been a sex fantasy longer than I’ve been alive.A good John Brunner book and a good Ed Emshwiller cover.I’d love to know what’s behind this Jerome Rozen cover.This Clark Hullings cover too, mostly because I’m curious what the guy’s role in the story is. Ill-fated husband? Pimp? Wishing he could be in the middle of the sandwich?I’ll end with this awesome cover by Lou Feck.

Uncredited cover art for Tuesday

I have no idea what message this cover art is meant to convey.I’ve never gotten into Van Vogt but that’s a cool cover. I’m not much into Kornbluth either but I like this cover.Here’s another one where I don’t get the story, but it’s more intriguing than the one up top.

The next two are odd as they’re two sides of an Ace Double. All the ones I’ve seen are SF or mystery but this appears to have one of each. I wonder how that worked out?

And I’ll end with one I’ve posted before.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.

The Octopus of Space!

Edward Swiatek gives us the cover visual to go with that title. I can’t help thinking the story was probably horrible, but at the same time the title intrigues me.And that’s the only cover I have for today, sorry
