Pat: ("There has been a great deal of talk about the big questions of 
science
fiction," SF author L. Sprague de Camp said once. "The truly big
question of science fiction is ‘What is that woman in a brass brassiere
doing on the cover of my book?’")


LMB: Heh. Indeed.

But sexy women have been (and are still being) used to sell everything 
from cars to beer. Why not SF as well?

Ta, L.
