Many thanks to Sarah!

Gah! Scary floating head!
It’s like that time I took those mushrooms, Portobello I believe… but then after dinner I watched a 70′s psychedelic movie.
I don’t know, i think i like this one.
I’m definately intrigued as to why a lizardman wearing a 1900′s suit is riding a Penny-farthing bicycle through the set of a western movie.
After the American channel AMC released the rights to The Prisoner, the only buyer was the economically challenged lizardoid people of planet Gleebanx.
Sometimes a Sleestak just wants to enjoy a nice Sunday ride, is that so wrong?
Only two colours – an ink-saving measure, or a colour-blind designer?
Riding a penny farthing isn’t easy at the best of times.
One of the moons is a head!
This book needs a bilious colour scheme like a lizard needs a bicyc… hang on…
Call me strange if you want, but I think this cover really works! I’d pick it up and give it a read.
The text says, “A galactic newshound takes on a freaked-out planet.” Doesn’t say who wins, though. Clearly, it’s not the readers.
Alternate book titles:
- IT’S NOT EASY SEEING GREEN
- ON A BICYCLE MADE FOR ONE
- FANTASTIC VOYAGE INTO DAVID ICKE’S BRAIN
Yea I do rather like this one. I would definitely buy it.
Though I am pretty sure riding any thin wheel based transport through that type of terrain would be mighty difficult!
Unless you’re a SPACE FROG!
That’s no frog… that’s a… well… that thing from star trek.
I actually rather like this one. And I’m no amphibiphile.
Minor Rule 3 infraction here: like pretty much all of Ron Goulart’s SF (at least the stuff he writes under his own name – see the TekWar entry earlier), it’s a comedy/parody.
Even so, this cover looks like it’s TRYING to be serious. Therefore, Good Show Sir!
It’s like Frog and Toad gone horribly, horribly wrong.
