Only The Worst!

by Joseph M

In past entries, we’ve talked about how the jacket covers can tell you something about when a book was published as well as provide vital clues as to the identity of a book which resists identification by other means.

Today I’d like to mention a website devoted to showcasing the most bizarre, inexplicable, and just plain bad science fiction and fantasy book covers out there. It’s called Good Show Sir, and it is billed as “Only the worst Sci-fi/Fantasy book covers”.

The pictures are hilarious, and the commentary even more so! I find it highly amusing. Can you think of any book covers that are so bad they are good?
