HOOOOLLLLLLY CRAAAAAAAP... Who dressed you in purple?Click for full image

I don’t know where I’ve been for the past few days, but I found this written on the back of my hand:  Blue black skin, golden eyes, brain tubes, explosions, horrified expression, spaced out look, glass dome head.

Oh wait, it’s just all the classic symptoms of reading a collection of  Sci-Fi stories.

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of artI would touch it without protective glovesI have seen worse. Far, far worseInteresting, but I would still read it in publicMiddling: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lamé picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show, Sir.... Good Show! (Average: 8.83 out of 10)

    Actually…. is the inside on that dome a clock? He’s been turned into a clock?

    I really don’t know… its hard to guess, especially given the list of short stories , possibly “The Time Wager” by John Kippax?

    None of those titles really sound like they involve a galaxy sized blue/black God with a glass domed head, who spends his eternity shouting (or singing opera?)

    So that’s what people mean when they say a space opera? ;)

    Well if you can get past the Black and White Minstrel Show blacking up this is, in a dated pulpy way, really rather splendid.

    Of course the man has been turned into a clock. Look at it more closely. It’s a negative of Albert Einstein, and this is a reference to relativity. (Honest guv.)
