The awesome-titled blog Good Show Sir presents “Only the worst Sci-fi/Fantasy book covers” for your enjoyment. For example, one of my favorite science fiction books of all time, under one of the worst covers you’ll ever see:
This site is great, but that book… Tiger Tiger? That’s gotta be the UK(?) edition of The Stars My Destination, which…. holy balls is that a great book! Alfred Bester was THE MAN. Seriously, he didn’t write a whole lot of books, but both that and The Demolished Man are among some of my favorite books. Actually, I think James Robinson named one of the Starman arcs after that book.
“Stars my Destination,” right?
Yep, the site is British, so I’d wager a lot of the scans of the book covers are probably from the UK editions. “Tiger, Tiger” is indeed “The Stars My Destination,” and I wholeheartedly agree with John that Alfred Bester was The Man. “The Demolished man” is equally fantastic, as are his short story collections (including the famous/infamous “The Men Who Killed Muhhamed”).
J. Michael Straczynski is a huge Bester fan as well, and named one of the characters on Babylon 5 after the writer. I first heard about him via that venue.
