I don’t understand the complaints about this cover having nothing to do with the story. The green moon? Puh-leeze, that is obvious. A giant lipstick labelled (in English) “INSTANT GOLD” while performing a strip-tease? If you have read the book, that makes perfect sense. Tiny black robots overcoming a red-jacketed pikeman and running over a naked woman’s body into a storefront labelled “GOLD”? Yep, straight out of Chapter 7.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a Portuguese paperback version of The Deep Blue Good-by, titled O adeus profundo e azul (The Deep Blue Good-by), printed in 1965 by Ibis as Rififi 31.
