And Now for Something Completely Different...

Let's start December with a few laughs: Graphic designer Mark Longmire is a wacky guy with a funny website, including a page parodying romance novel covers. Try it, you'll like it--hilarious. Click on the link.

That is a great site. Thanks. I am now going to go off and try and photoshop some of my own..only I wonder if I can find some awful scifi covers from the fifties?

A lot of these are really hilarious. But I almost swear I've seen some of these books on the actual shelves.

Stewart, I'm glad you enjoyed the site. Longmire is a funny guy! I look forward to viewing your creations--I'm sure you can find some worthy subjects in the SFF field.

Charles, you probably have seen some of those covers on shelves before. Longmire uses real covers, with the real authors' names, and simply changes the titles and the cover blurbs for his parodies.

What's even funnier is that I own some of the novels he parodied!
