“RARR! This halfhearted cover quote make me so MAD!!!”
It was all fun and games climbing on the big monster. Until a cat jumped on it’s right hand and scared the crap out of it!
“Discerning people have always read Keith Laumer for a lot of reasons [...]”
Talk about a back-handed compliment…!
Oh, and by the way, the cover is the artist’s interpretation of
“Edited By ERIC FLINT”.
Does it look to you like he’s yowling because one of the falling humans has punched him in the left nipple?
What I like about it is, it’s so subtle.
Trust me, if the Twilight movies had featured this guy, they wouldn’t have felt so long.
It might be the cat, SI, but I’m inclined to blame the bear in his armpit. That always puts me in a bad mood.
Yoss> You just blew my mind! This picture is amazing!!!
There’s also a guy in a thong just above the bear. This is a picture that just keeps giving!
What kind of creature is this? The scales of a reptile, the moobs of a mammal. No wonder he’s so mad.
I know!!!! Look waaaaaay in the back (above the “L” in Flint) and there’s what appears to be some kind of livestock.
You have a totally logical reason to paint a dwarf hanging from a giant nipple ring and don’t do it. This discerning people is NOT delighted.
Great, this kraken sprays people from his nipples.
The woman beside the guy touching his nipple looks to be doing a somersault while plunging to her doom…I guess if you have to go, you may as well go in style!
Those are some serious abs….I wonder who his trainer is.
Is that a housecat falling down near the bottom? I think so…
@FearofMusic—isn’t this another arrow in your “weird pecs tag” argument quiver? Certainly seems to be, with those nips and all . . . .
@Tom– do you mean the animal falling towards “edited by ERIC FLINT”?
Yes. I think that’s storied housecat and sci-fi cover denizen Orson.
There’s another one on the monster’s right hand, just left of David Weber’s faint praise. This one seems much more in control of its situation, so it probably isn’t called Orson.
The more I read the review-quote blurb, the more disturbing it sounds… Who the hell are these “discerning people”? Is it like “right-thinking people”? Or “People who are fussy about what to read?”
