I'm looking at that translucent scarf thing, and can't figure out how it's....secured to the body. Strategically placed pasties?

She probably has the ends thumb-tacked to her nipples. Anything for the sake of fashion!

Ouch.

Maybe somebody (Russ Meyer, presumably) misinterpreted what the Flying Mountains actually were?

It's good to know we've come so far... *sigh*

Judging by the second book's cover, the target demographic is clearly CHESS PLAYERS.

So who is the first one targeting then? Lizard lovers? (at least, I think that's a lizard at the bottom of the cover)

Wait, so this macho guy is surrounded by tons of half-naked chicks and he still has all his clothes on? I find these covers illogical! I demand half-naked man for sake of realism!

Re: jawdrop

That is correct, yes. In the United States, we usually render it as "tits and ass", with the whole US/UK ass/arse thing, but yes, exactly.

When that first image showed up in my browser, I assumed it was a parody.

Ouch.

Maybe they should have used something from the Pre-Raphaelites?

Regardless, the covers are (unintentionally, I suspect) hilarious.

Now I have an urge to go and photoshop laser pistols and cheesy SF titles onto PRB stuff. (St. Eulalia shot first.)
